- Wedding: November 2015
I am out of my mind with excitement! My fiance (eeee!) and I are in California for a two week vacation and have been here for three days. This morning, we went on a hike along the coast and found a beautiful secluded beach with no one in sight! The waves were coming up and getting our shoes wet, and it was a little windy, but he asked me to stand at a distance against a cavernous backdrop and “set a timer for a picture.” It turns out it was a recording, and he got down on one knee and proposed! Neither of us can quite remember what was asked, but both of us teared up…it was magical!
I can’t believe I was ever annoyed with waiting. It was PERFECT! And he admited to me later that he hated keeping a straight face around me, because he looks forward to marrying me so much!
We are both over the moon, and so are our families. I think we’re going to bask in the engagement glow for a few months before wedding planning… I gotta let this sink in. 🙂
Here’s a picture we took right after he asked! I’ll have a better shot of the ring soon.
