- Wedding: June 2014
I’m late to my own party bc I realized I never posted my engagement story or ring!!! We got engaged last October and are getting married June 28, 2014.
Here’s the story as told on our wedding website (slightly modified) 🙂
Saturday, October 13, 2012 began like the years before it had. We were volunteering at the Walk Now for Autism Speaks event so we woke up early, headed down to park, and talked to passersby about Autism research and Autism Speaks. This Walk was special, however, because it also fell on our four-year anniversary. After the Walk ended, we drove home, and got ready for a night on the town to celebrate.
We went to restaurant for dinner. The weather was overcast, but lovely. We shared a divine meal and dessert and decided to head over to park (with gentle guiding from Mr. Skittles). Here, is where the magic happened! Mr. Skittles walked me through the fountains and suddenly he got down on one knee and popped the question. I was shocked and thrilled. Two friends popped out behind the trees and captured the special moment by camera. We continued to have an impromptu photo shoot amongst the industrial sculptures. And it didn’t end there! Soon I was whisked away to the bar where friends and family embraced us with congratulations and well wishes. It was a perfect night!
