- Wedding: June 2015
My SO and I have been together for almost 2 years and are currently in a long distance relationship (me in CA and him in OR). I went up to visit him this past week and I had a suspicion that he was going to pop the question. On Friday, I noticed he was checking his phone a lot and getting more texts than usual. We went to a fancy dinner overlooking the city and appearently the service was so good and fast that we had some time to kill. He ended up taking me to the International Rose Gardens to walk around and enjoy the scenery. After we got back to the car, he blinfolded me and wouldn’t tell me where we were going next. At that point, I knew that it was going to happen, so I decided to enjoy the moment and relish in the last few minutes of being an unengaged woman. We ended up back at his parents house, where it had been decorated with lanterns hanging from the trees and a table that had a book full of pictures of us throughout our relationship. He was about to ask me to marry him, but his mom had forgotten to put the ring out!!! So he had to run up to the house and grab it 🙂 at that point I said to the photographer that my SO had arranged to be there “Well if I didn’t know what was happening, I do now!!” My SO came running back from the house and promptly took my hand in his and told me that he knew from the second day of us dating that he was going to marry me. He asked me to be his wife and I said yes!!!!!!!!!!!!! We then took some pictures with the photographer and then went up to the house for an engagement party my future mother in law had set up 🙂 my SO even surprised me by having my family fly in to celebrate with us!!!!!! 😀 I am over the moon and I cannot wait to marry the man of my dreams!!!!
Here is my GORGEOUS ring!!!
It is a setting from ShaneCo with an added second halo. The center stone is a .6 cushion cut Forever Brilliant Moissanite and my ring size is a 5 1/2.
