- Wedding: September 2011
Mr. Love it and I were on a weekend vacation in Ludington, MI. This is a very special place for the two of us and the perfect spot for a proposal! His parents rent a house on the lakeshore with a private beach every year for one-two weeks. Since we have been dating for 10 years this was my 10th year to go up with the family.
Anyway, it was a gorgeous day and Mr. Love it wanted to take a quick walk on the beach while his mom and sister went out to get fish for dinner. While we were walking I started to take pictures of our shadows (Cheese I know). As I went to take the last shadow picture Mr. Love it said “You better get a picture of this because I’m only going to do it once.” He got down on his knee and asked me to spend the rest of our lives together. He pulled out the ring that he designed with a jewler based from pictures I showed him of rings I loved. I jumped around the beach for a good ten minutes!
As we walked back to the house I asked him if anyone else knew. He only spoke to my dad about it, so we told his mom and sister they had to see this big rock we found on the beach! They both cried and hugged us. Mr. Love it snuck around back and brought out four glasses and a nice bottle of champagne for us all to toast.
Late that night we wanted to celebrate with a campfire on the beach. After the fire was made Mr. Love it said he had one more thing for me. He ran up into the bluff and plugged in lights that he had strung throughout the trees. He planned on proposing there, but thought the day was to pretty to go by without giving me the ring.
Later on I found out that he has had the ring since last September and has been waiting for the perfect moment. He wanted to propose last summer in Ludington, but the ring wasn’t finished.
Sorry so long…pictures attached!
