- Wedding: August 2013
Hi bees! While I have been reading these boards for a few months, I wanted to wait until I was engaged to actually join. As of last Friday, I am now ENGAGED!!!!!!
My Proposal Story:
My fiancé (EEK!) came home and mentioned that he wanted to cook dinner for me. He cooks fairly often so I didn’t really suspect anything. Before starting to make dinner, he mentioned that he had a present for me. This is where I get suspicious =). I sat down on the couch and he hands me a wrapped gift in a medium-sized rectangular box. I open the present and see a beautiful silver picture frame. While I am thanking him for the gift, I finally notice the inscription at the bottom of the frame: “(*name*, Will you marry me? March 2, 2012)! He then walks over, gets down on one knee, and asks me to be his wife. He also presents me with a GORGEOUS ring (pics below)! At this point I am completely giddy and am able to say yes before crying hysterically. The next morning we had already planned a trip to visit my parents, so we were able to surprise them with the news. Overall, a PERFECT weekend.
The oval stone was originally his mother’s. I love that it has familiy history! He worked with a jeweler to design the band. Sorry that the pics aren’t that great… I’ll have to plan a photoshoot to take more.
