What’s your engagement date and story? 4th of July (everyone says this is very us. we love anything to do with politics, governement the USA in general. We met in College Republicans!)

Justin and I had discussed getting married, well many times. I knew he was waiting until after my brother got married. I knew that once the wedding was over it would happen sometime soon since he was moving to North Carolina at the beginning of August.

I went up to visit Justin for the 4th of July and was so hoping he would propose. On that Saturday he still hadn’t and I was upset it would never happen. Justin told me it was not happening that weekend, so I should stop worrying about it. I finally let it go. 

On the fourth we went to have a picnic and watch fireworks with some friends at Lake Grapevine. Once the fireworks started Justin started to tell me how the last two and a half years had been the best of his life and how much he loved me. He then got down on one knee and asked me to marry him!

How many guests are you planning for? 200


Is there anything else you want to tell us? I am planning from North Carolina for our Texas wedding with little help :-/

Hi everyone! I’m new here, so here goes:

  1. When is your wedding date? August 18th, 2012
  2. How old are you and your partner? He is 24, I’m 23
  3. What do you and your partner do for a living? He works in a restaurant/bar and I’m in school full time at Virginia Tech for my psychology degree.
  4. What’s your engagement date and story? It was actually very simple and to the point. We have been together 5 years this September so I was getting a little antsy. On November 19 (the day after my birthday) we had tickets for a Wake Forest football game. His original plan was to ask me at the game, but knowing I’m not one for mass amounts of attention he simply asked me right in our living room before we headed to the game πŸ™‚ When we went out to celebrate later that night I found out literally everyone we knew had known for over a month, and no one had managed to let it slip.
  5. What is your wedding’s theme/colors/style? Our theme is really laid back/rustic/southern. Colors are maroon and dusty pink.
  6. How many guests are you planning for? We’re sticking to 75, keeping it small.
  7. Is there anything else you want to tell us? I’m most excited about our location and the small details going into everything. We will be getting married on the Virginia Tech campus, I’m having custom maroon and orange shoes made (to have a little bit of Hokie spirit under my dress) and we’ll be entering our reception to Enter Sandman, full on football team style.

  • What do you and your partner do for a living? I work in operations/logistics for a property management company and he is VP of a large construction company and also an entrepreneur. 
  • What’s your engagement date and story? We were in Santa Barbara for my brother’s triathlon last August (28th), and decided to drive a bit further north to our favorite waterfall/hike. We hiked to the waterfall, took a few photos together (our usual MO), and then shared a hug and kiss. As I leaned away to start walking back down, he held on to my hand and pulled me back, said some very lovely and heartfelt things about our relationship (5 years and counting!) and our future, and then asked me to marry him. I was so happy/surprised that it took a few tries for me to actually say “yes!” I was incoherent with joy. I knew he had the ring (I helped design it) but he was feeling a bit off that day so I didn’t see it coming even though we were at our favorite place. Turns out, he was just nervous!
  • What is your wedding’s theme/colors/style? Wedding theme is rustic elegance. Colors are Ivory, taupe, beige, and soft green (with dark brown accents). Our venue is a 120-year old private estate. Both the ceremony and reception will be outside, in the evening.

We went to school together since grade 8.  In Biology 11, we were lab partners.  He did all of the hands on, cutting things open, and I did all of the written work.  It was great.  We became really good friends in grade 12, and then after grad we worked at a summer camp together and then started dating (the same camp that we will be getting married at).
