Today was our maternity photo shoot, and I had a hunch it would happen, but when it didn’t during our first location I sort of forgot about it. However, at our second location (the rose garden at his Alma Mater) the church bells suddenly chimed and my photographer told me to turn around and face him. When I did, he was down on one knee with the ring and tears in his eyes!
He said something along the lines of “I love you, you mean the world to me, will you marry me?” and I blurted out, “HOW DID YOU PLAN THAT WITH THE BELLS?!”. He actually had to ask a second time before I realized I hadn’t said yes yet. 🙂 So I said yes, shoved his great-grandmother’s wedding ring on my finger and spent the rest of the time on our maternity shoot doing an ENGAGEMENT shoot!
The rose garden was extra special because he actually picked a big bouquet of roses from there for me for our first date, I still have the dried petals.
It was perfect, and I love the bling. And I can’t wait to start wedding planning! Wish I had better pictures of the ring but we got about 1000 after he proposed, just have to wait to get them back from the photographer!
