- Wedding: June 2016
Hi bees! I have been lurking for a few weeks (had a feeling I was going to get engaged soon!) and signed up today to share my happy news 🙂
I am a huge Harry Potter fan and got to have an HP proposal which I think brings me to a new level of geek haha! He gave me a necklace as a promotion gift (I also got promoted last week, big week) and the necklace is a bronze chain with a snitch from HP’s quidditch and I saw it had a hinge and he asked me if I remembered what this meant and I said “I open at the close” like in the 7th book so he asked me to open it and inside was written “Will you marry me?”
I started crying and he did the down on one knee thing and told me that this was the close of the first part of our lives together and that we are not embarking on the second part of our lives, committing to each other forever. He also said a lot of other heartfelt things which I don’t remember because I blacked out from excitement lol!
He had also picked up two dozen roses, my favorite bottle of wine, and everything from the meal we had on our first date as well as the ingredients to make an amaretto sour which is the drink I was drinking that night Last but not least, he also gave me these beautiful Kate Spade Mr. & Mrs. champagne flutes to use for our first toast as a married couple at our wedding. He knows I loooove her home & wedding line, this was such a nice gift.
Here are some pictures of the ring and the snitch necklace. It is from Blue Nile and is a round brilliant set in the Classic Halo Setting in platinum. I was unable to find “real” pictures of this setting on anyone’s hand when he asked me what kind of setting I wanted a few months ago so I thought I’d share if anyone is considering this setting.
