- Wedding: June 2015
On November 25th, my fiance’, Future Mother in Law, and I visited Universal Islands of Adventure-The Wizarding World of Harry Potter. As we entered the park, my fiance’ suggested that we take our new Facebook profile picture in front of the Hogsmede sign at the front of the park (nothing unusual there, we had planned to take a new profile picture and we had taken a similar picture there a little over 2 years ago.). It was crowded, so the picture wasn’t great.
I told him not to worry about it. We proceeded to the Dueling Dragons rollarcoasters. Afterwards, we tried to take pictures in front of the mock-up Hogwarts castle, but it too was too crowded.
Then we had lunch at the Three Broomsticks, and he said that he had found a great spot for the picture where we could have the castle in the background. I told him not to worry about the picture, and that we could take it later in the week. He insisted that we go to the spot which was in the line for the Dueling Dragons Rollarcoaster, but had the castle in the background and the Frog Chior directly below us. We took a couple of pictures, and then he pulled the ring box out of his pocket ( I could not see this, because he was on my right side and I am blind in my right eye).
He turned to turned me, took my hand in his, and said “Nerdybee, I have known that I have wanted to spend my life with you for quite sometime; will you marry me?” I whispered out a “Wouldn’t suck…” and then a louder, “Yes!” and hugged him. He was nervous, so he suddenly remembered to get down on one knee, and presented me with the ring.
People stopped while we took pictures and congratulated us. Later while standing in line for the Forbidden Journey in the mock-up castle, I was on the phone with my brother telling him that we were engaged, and since he couldn’t hear me the first time, I had to repeat it a little louder; (the pictures in the castle are made to move), after saying “he proposed!” the people in the picture clapped. It was an amusing coincidence.
I am boarding the plane to go home, and am on my phone so the ring pictures shall come tomorrow.
