- Wedding: October 2015 - Ellis Ranch; Oct 2015
holy crow, i cannot believe i get to post here!
a little bit of background: my boyfriend took me to this lookout view over the reservoir and town after our first dinner date in july 2011. it was going to be on sunday, may 11th, but a spring-time snow made a slight change in plan.
the build up: i went over to my friend’s house to dye her hair. while we were watching a movie afterward, she got a text that we needed to go help a friend get a dog into a vehicle to take it to the veterinarian. on the drive there, my friend passed the turn-off, and said she would turn around at the next available spot (i was telling her the story of the first date there, because we were on the winding road that lead to the lookout). she kept passing viable turn around areas, and said she would just get to the top of the hill (i am still oblivious, thinking about the dog; he’s okay by the way — it was all a decoy!). welp, we get to the lookout and i see my bf (now fiance!!) standing in the middle of the lot! i start yelling at my friend, pulling out my hair clip and bobby pins, already getting tears streaming down my face (i am such a sap!). i ended up breaking my work badge as i got out of the car. go to hug her, and she sends me on my way to him. all i can do is hug him. then he says i need to step back so he can ask the question. haha. knee-bended and on the ground, he forgets what he was going to preface “will you marry me?” with. his grin made me catch my breath, because i am pretty sure i was only able to whisper, “YES!”
his best bud was there photographing, so we got to capture the moments before, during, and after!!
then i had to go to my evening job while the guys celebrated. haha.
hope you enjoyed

alpinebride: LOL no worries. I was married back in September 2011 and I’m one of those crazies who fell in love with weddings and this community, so alas, 3 years later i’m still here hanging out with you ladies! I don’t quite frequent the boards as much as i used to, but with free moments, you can usually find me poking through recaps or dress threads to pass some time! 🙂

pengoala: Ahh. 🙂 I hardly ever get to find a spare moment, so I’m still one of those bees who has only a couple hundred posts. I haven’t been joined for long though. 🙂
