- Wedding: May 2015
Swedish bee here, so I apologise in advance for any weird use of the English language, lol!
So, last year on May 1’st my (then) SO were in a very serious motorcycle accident. He crashed into a car in high speed and was taken to hospital with helicopter. His neck was broken, lung was punctured, his aorta was almost ripped apart. Both arms broken, and massive nerve damages to one arm and shoulder. Broken nose and jaw. The list continues…
He was so damaged that they held him in coma for 8 days. I was constantly by his side, wiping his sweat and holding his hand. On May 9, after several surgeries, they decided to wake him up. It was our 5 year anniversary! I couldn’t ask for a better anniversary gift! <3 The first thing he said (that I was able to hear. He rambled a lot, and was very difficult to understand) was “I breath through you”. OMG, my heart melted and my answer was “When this is over, let’s get married!”. And he agreed. Some of you might think that I took advantage of his state, but of course we talked about it again when he was sober. And he still wanted to marry me! We decided to don’t tell anyone. We never wanted a wedding, but just ceremony of love between the two of us.
2014 has been a rough year to say the least. The first three months after the accident was horrible. I had to take care of the house, our dogs, our company and of my Fiance. And also take care of my self. But he recovered good. The doctors said only ONE of 1000 survives a crash like that and my Fiance didn’t only survive, but he was neither paralysed or suffered any brain damage! #LUCKY
I designed my own ring in 18K gold, with a champagne diamond surrounded by colourless diamonds. I’ve had it since August 2014 but never worn it other than at home, since it was suppose to be a secret. Anyway, we are going to get married on May 9 this year. It’s less then 40 hours left! In 40 hours I will go from kind of NO ring on my finger, to TWO and I will have a new last name. I feel so truly honored to be marrying my best friend and number one inspiration in life!
And yeah, our family’s doesn’t know anything either. We will say our vows in the city hall and after that we are spending the night in a luxury hotel with spa, eating a 6 course meal with selected wines in a top class restaurant. And of course, we will then make the announcement to family and friends. Oh, I can’t wait!
Pic of our rings! FI’s ring is in titanium with scratched surface and a shiny string of 18K gold. We decided on the design together and had it handmade. In my e-ring, I have engraved “I breath through you”…
