- Wedding: February 2011
Hello fellow bloggers!
I hope you had a wonderful holiday and New Year! I have been reading your blogs and have finally decided to start my own after going round and round about it in my head. Well, it is a new year and a chance for new beginnings. I hope I can do weddingbee proud!
A little bit about me: I am an Oklahoma girl and moved across the country this summer, when I am not wedding planning, I spend too much of my time looking at dogs on petfinder(even though I don’t have one right now for practical reasons), I live in a tinsy little apartment and can’t wait to move into yet another tinsy apartment for now anyway.. I would describe my wedding style as traditional (hence the name) with a twist. I have been planning my wedding for about 6 months now, but still have lots to do and figure out until the big day. That’s all for now, you will learn much more about me as the countdown ensues 🙂
Let’s start from the beginning…
The Engagement Story
My fiancé and I graduated late spring 2010 and were planning on moving to our current location to start work and learn what it is to be an adult. Before moving, we took a trip with my family to tour Austria and Germany. To make a long story short, he proposed (As if you didn’t know already)! Here are the nitty gritty details of the day: My family, boyfriend and I just made it into Salzburg for a day meandering through the city and popping in and out of shops. Some of the places we saw were Mozartplatz, the cathedral, the fortress on the hill, and even a wedding party leaving one of the churches. We gathered with Salzburgers and other tourists to cheer on and congratulate the couple. Little did I know, a little diamond ring was tucked away in the coat pocket of my soon to be fiancé..
After a day of taking in all the sights and sounds of this picturesque little town, my boyfriend and I decided to have dinner by ourselves since we had not had a chance to do so. We stopped by a intimate little Italian restaurant named Flavour (I highly recommend it) to make reservations (I completely failed at trying to make reservations by phone earlier in the day). We had an hour or so to burn, so we spent our time stopping a few cafes to grab a glass of wine and reflect on the trip so far.
Finally, we made our way to the restaurant and had dinner and of course, another glass of wine 🙂 I had absolutely no idea what was about to happen next. A glass of the most delicious tasting French champagne was brought to our table and then he started saying lots of very sweet things (many of which I don’t remember, because I started to catch on to what was happening). He pulled out the ring, asked if I would marry him. I was so excited, I cried and was so overwhelmed I couldn’t speak (*the glasses in the picture below were two separate incidences..). After about a minute or so, I said yes!
Well, that is the beginning of this story. Stay tuned for the fun details of the wedding!
