- Wedding: October 2011
I knew that Fiance had a ring for the last few weeks, but although originally it was me who asked him to do something nice for me when he gives it to me, it turned out that he actually really wanted to do it, but with his busy work schedule couldn’t arrange anything.
Last night I came home from work, changed, grabbed my gear and ran to a photoshoot, which I happened to mention to him a day before with time, which I never really do. During the photo shoot I received an email from him saying that he’s already home from work and asking me to call him when I am done. We do not currently live together and he never ever asked me to call him before.
I was done by 9pm and called him from my car on the way home. I complained that I was very hungry as I expected the restaurant to feed me as they always do, but it was at a new not yet opened place and the kitchen was not working. Fiance offered to bring food to me and I replied that it’s ridiculous since he lives on the other end of the city and with buying/making food, getting dressed and taking public transportation to come to my place, it would take at least 1.5 hours. To which he replied that I might be surprised. Immediately I got suspicious and asked him where he was, he replied that he was home. Which home, I asked. He avoided the question and asked me back where could he be. Your home or mine home, I asked again and he replied why would he be at my home. I was extremely suspicious, but dropped the questionning. I was already close to my place, and he asked me if we are still on for the next day, I said yes and dismissed all my suspicions at that point.
While I was getting my photography stuff out of the car and getting upstairs, I thought to myself that it would be so cool if he were actully at my place, but I quickly stopped imagining it as I didn’t think he would be so romantic. I got to my apartment, opened the door and screamed because I got startled. The lights were off, the whole place was covered in candles and Fiance was standing there with my favourite flowers and food on the table.
It was so romantic, like a scene from some movie. He told me how he loves me and how he wanted to do something nice for me. Then he gave me the ring and I asked him to ask me to marry him again, which was very exciting 🙂
The ring is better than I imagined even though I saw a wax mould of it. It’s really beautiful!!
Sorry for crappy iPhone pictures.
This is the original ring from the jeweller. We removed the bottom line and it’ll become my wedding ring. So, after I am married, the rings on my finger should look similar to this:
