- Wedding: March 2012
So Boyfriend or Best Friend wakes me up at 4am on Friday and tells me I need to get dressed and get in the car without any fuss or questions! lol yeah right! After half an hour in the car of bugging him we pull up at my favourite winery and I get ushered into a van that takes us across to the airfield and where a big hot air balloon is being inflated. Boyfriend or Best Friend says thats our balloon and we are going up in it for an hour. We go into the shed and go through all the briefing and get into the balloon.
Just as we are going up in the air two guys on the ground roll out a banner saying will you marry me and I turn around and Boyfriend or Best Friend is on one knee with a ring box and teary eyes. I cant describe the feeling I got when it all happened. I started blubbering like a little girl!! and he asked me and I said of course! We enjoyed our balloon ride for just short of an hour – the wind started to pick up so it got dangerous. We landed and had a champagne breakfast back at the champagne house that I love and got to drive around and look at the venue that we picked out!
We waited 8 hours before we told our families since we want to drive up to my parents place when they got home from work! We spent the whole weekend celebrating and are planning and engagement party in Feb and wedding in May 2012!!
Thanks to all those waiting girls for their advice and sane words of wisdom. It feels great that the waiting is over and I hope it happens for you soon too 🙂
Oh and here is some ring porn I just took! lol (No pics of the balloon yet – Fiance has that memory card)
