- Wedding: March 2015
YAYYY! It was a short and sweet proposal. I knew it was coming because we went ring shopping but it was still very special. 🙂
So the backstory is that last year we went on our 3rd date to Zoo Lights at the National Zoo in Washington, DC. Basically the zoo puts up all these lights in the shape of animals and you can walk around the zoo at night, it’s very romantic and fun. So last year when we were walking around I spotted the merry go round, and got really excited because I love them so much. My then bf could see my excitement so he agreed to ride on the merry go round with me (he rode a flamingo, it was hilarious). From that moment I knew he was something special because he was willing to look silly just to make me happy. I just knew that we would be together for a long time.
So fast forward to last week on the 23rd. We’re walking around the zoo enjoying ourselves and then he stops me at the merry go round. He gave a little speech (it was all a blur!) about how he loved me etc and then got down and proposed and then we rode the merry go round!
Later we went to celebrate with champagne at a fancy restaurant in DC called Range. The bartenders asked if we were celebrating and we told them we just got engaged so they gave us free champagne and dessert! All in all it was a wonderful night.
