- Wedding: August 2020
Hi! I’m so so happy and excited – we got (officially) engaged yesterday! We decided in February to be married in 2020. His mom recently gifted us the lovely diamond his dad proposed with to be reset, we’ve been scouting ceremony locations, and are about to put a deposit on a reception location. So we have been planning, yet we talked about still doing a formal proposal because we are the romantic type!
Well, I came home from work yesterday and a record was on, candles lit and he was wearing a gorgeous blue dress shirt of his that I love. I was like why are you wearing that shirt, bahaha. Cue my nervous laughter and giddiness. We chatted for a bit, I settled in, and followed him onto our balcony.
After a few sweet moments, he said my name and got down on his knee. I immediately burst into happy tears which I was not expecting to do! He recited a beautiful little poem he wrote and asked me to be his wife. And of course, I said yes!! Then I told him to please say the poem again later because I kinda blacked out from joy. Haha!!
The ring is so beautiful, set in rose gold, and the stone has been given new life for sure! I’m so excited and our families are very happy. Yay!
