- Wedding: August 2015
I got engaged about a month ago, but I am new on the Bee, and the fact that I’m engaged is still super exciting! So I want to share my story, just for fun 🙂
First of all it was a huge surprise!! We had discussed marriage a lot, and I thought maybe next year it would happen, but he totally surprised me. I live in a really rural area, he lives in the city, and he’d made a huge deal for a few weeks about not missing the fall colours in my area and how we should go for a hike. He was talking about it all the time, like how he was so excited to come up that weekend, and making me ask people what part of the trail we should get on. The “hike day” came and he was wearing a leather/suede coat, when it wasn’t cold out, which should’ve been a sign also but again I had no idea! So we were driving along my favourite road in my county that travels along the bay, and had no idea where to get on the trail (I’d never actually found out lol, I thought we could figure it out, and I didn’t know what was coming!) He pulled the car over eventually and was like “what a pretty road!” Another thing he normally wouldn’t say. I looked over and he had a ring out and said “will you marry me?” I was so surprised and started crying, I don’t think I’ve ever had that feeling before haha, pretty awesome. 🙂
Anyway, just wanted to share! We have booked our venue and are meeting with a photographer soon, and that’s about all we’ve done. We are getting married August 29, 2015 so we still have lots of time! I’m hoping he can move to my area, but if not I’ll be looking for jobs in his (the main reason the wedding isn’t for 2 years).
I had described the ring I’d like before we got engaged, because I really don’t like a lot of other styles, and he gave me exactly what I’d described! He is a good listener. 🙂
