Hi! I’m new to the bee. I was engaged August 30th in Ireland! I found out I was leaving 1 day before our fight! My fiance showed up at my house with a new camera and our fight schedule and told me to pack! We spent 7 days in Ireland, and on the 2nd day he took me to Wicklow National Park and proposed at the bridge in P.S. I Love You (One of my favorite movie/books)! Spending another 5 days in Ireland with a new fiance was amazing!
Luckily for us there was lovely woman on the tour we were on that said she would take pictures for us. We were on a was a small tour with 11 people. All I knew was that we were going to be hiking 6 miles that day! The bridge was on the way to the hike. As the tour driver (the owner/hike leader) was driving up to it he said all the American girls go crazy over the bridge and always want to get out to take pictures. He asked us all if we wanted to get out and if we have seen the movie. I was the only one besides my fiance that had seen it so no one was interested in getting out. The driver then said something about it being a great place to propose jokingly. My fiance then said well if you don’t mind can you stop I think i’ll propose!!!!
Everyone got out of the van and watched as he got down on one knee and said many things that I wished I had heard! I was shaking with nerves and so excited!! The tour driver had no idea my fiance was going to do it he just mentioned it as a joke! The driver stopped on the way up to the hike to get a bottle of champagne to celebrate and we all had a glass when we got down from the hike! IT WAS PERFECT!
