I’ve Always thought the proposal set the tone for the marriage, its something so special to the couple and it’s something so unique and personal that for every couple its always different. Before out engagement i had day dreamed about what that would look like and how he would propose and i can honestly say that when that moment happens, its so much more magical and special than any of the day dreams you could possibly imagine!
FI And I met five years ago at a local coffee shop. We started off as friends and he even took me to my graduation. Our romance started off slowly and over the years it has grown in leaps and bounds. He is not only my love, but a true friend and someone who i admire.
We decided that for our 5th year anniversary we would take a trip to an island 5 hours away from home and Celebrate our lives together with some beach combing and together time. We found ourselves on Beacon Hill Park and should you ever visit Victoria i would make the effort to go there and walk the grounds, not only as they well maintained but they are incredibly beautiful!
This is the Beach that Fiance Proposed on, Beacon Hill Park.
On our beach walk we found ourselves some new friends, this little crab was hiding in the rocks and had i not been looking down we might have stepped on him!
A beach tradition for Fiance and I, something that we have done for years out at our lake property is to build a rainbow out of colored rocks and make a wish on them, we then leave the rainbow for someone else to discover in hopes that it might brighten their day when the find it. We decided it was only fitting that we made one on our trip and as i was taking photos of our creation, i turned around and Fiance was down on one knee and asked me to marry him. When we day dream about something, for so long, reality is certainly better than any of those day dreams combined. For myself i could not have asked for a more personal and meaningful proposal.
Not to Leave you hanging, because i know you will want to see it. This is my engagement ring, a blue sapphire ring, with diamonds around the stone and down the band. Ever since i was young i knew i wanted a sapphire, perhaps influenced by the great princess Diana, or maybe because i am just quirky like that. Fiance picked out the ring himself and i think he found an amazing ring that is everything i could have asked for!
