- Wedding: August 2015
There’s a small town contest here in my hometown to win $2000 worth of wedding decor. You must submit an engagement photo with a little story about your relationship, proposal, etc. I would love to see what all of you bees think (since you’ve been so helpful in the past!) before I submit it!
Whoever gets the most ‘likes’ by December 22nd wins the contest! Fingers crossed! Below is the photo and write up I have come up with! I would love your thoughts/suggestions!
My fiance and I met over nine years ago. Even before we began dating, on October 17, 2005, I knew he was special to me.
Our small high school crush eventually developed into something much more meaningful than we ever could have been imagined. Before we knew it, the next eight years were spent finishing high school, college and university, moving in together and making a temporary place our home.
This thanksgiving, (FI) took me to our special spot. A waterfall, where many late, hot summer nights were spent swimming with friends. There, he got down on one knee and asked me to marry him. On our walk back to the truck, he explained why he chose this spot. He said “A few year back, we were swimming here one night and I mentioned that it would be a beautiful spot to get married. You replied ‘nah..maybe engaged.’ I’ve always remembered that moment and knew ever since that I would ask you to marry me here.”
Even when we think there’s no way our love could grow any stronger for each other, it always seems to find a way to! I can’t wait to see what the future holds for us. I love you more than ever (FI) and I can’t wait to be your wife!
