It was just a regular summer morning on Monday, August 8, 2011. My boyfriend Matt and I were headed to Disneyland to celebrate our one year anniversary. We share a love for Disneyland and in my opinion it is one of the most romantic places there is. We were having the time of our lives and thankfully the park wasn’t packed so we were able to do our favorite rides more than once without having to worry about standing in those enormous lines. As 5pm was approaching, Matt told me that some of his friends were in the park too and that we should meet up with them and hangout. I didn’t mind, the more the merrier in my opinion and so we headed towards Snow White’s Wishing Well. We had gotten there just in time to have our pictures taken with the Wicked Queen (One of the scariest villians in my opinion). In all my many times of going to Disneyland I had never actually been to the Wishing Well so as I made my way towards it to have a better look Matt walked up to me and handed me a quarter. He told me to close my eyes, count to ten, and make a wish. I was a bit skepical about this but did it anyway and as I opened my eyes and turned around there was my Prince Charming on one knee holding a ring box in the shape of a long stem red rose and inside was a heart shaped diamond ring. I was speechless, literally and he STILL doesn’t let me live down the fact that I didn’t actually say ‘Yes’ but the fact of the matter was that I was crying and I couldn’t utter a single word so I nodded (We laugh about it though). The next thing I knew everyone was clapping and cheering as he slipped the ring on my finger. It was the happiest day of my life!!!! It still gives me chills just thinking about it especially since it was so unexpected. We are planning on OFFICIALLY annoucing our engagement on my birthday (March 17th) of this year at my birthday bash and by officially I mean that it will be FACEBOOK OFFICIAL instead of keeping it amongst close family and friends. I can’t wait to start planning our Disneyland wedding!!! And now without further delay, THE RING!!!!
Roses are my favorite flower especially red ones. I was randomly looking at ring boxes one day and found this one and showed it to Matt because I thought it was cute. On the day that he proposed and I saw that he had actually gotten this box I couldn’t believe it. It was the PERFECT box and soooo original!!! <3
Here it is again with my ring inside of it.
TA-DA!!!!! THE RING!!!! This ring was actually custom made for me with a custom setting and size. To this day I can’t stop looking at it.
And here it is again. I love knowing that I’m the only girl with this ring. Yes yes I know that I’m not the ONLY girl with a heart shaped diamond ring but I’m the only girl with THIS heart shaped diamond ring 😉
And last but not least, Matt’s friend went all the way over to the Disneyland hotel to get these pins for us. I was soooo proud to be wearing it that day 🙂
