- Wedding: March 2017
Hey ladies!! So after months of anticipation, he FINALLY popped the big question on Saturday! I am so incredibly excited to finally be a part of this forum instead of just lurking. 🙂 And of course, here is a picture of my ring! It’s an A. Jaffe and I picked it out over the summer. Yay!
So here’s a little story of how he did it.
I knew he was going to do it this past weekend. We’ve been talking about it for so long and I knew he would do it in October, and this was the last weekend before Halloween so I knew it was going to happen now! 🙂
We are from Tampa, and he took me to one of my favorite little towns to shop. He wanted to take me shopping but I wasn’t in the shopping mood at all haha. But we had to walk around a bit because he had everything perfectly planned out time-wise. So we walked around the shops a little, grabbed coffee and just enjoyed each other’s company for a while. After we shopped around, he took me for a walk through this adorable neighborhood that I always talk about wanting to live in. Once we got through the neighborhood, he took me across the street to this popular sidewalk called Bayshore Boulevard, which is right on the water and you can see the Tampa skyline. He had it so meticulously planned out that he knew exactly when the sun would set, so when we got to it, there was the most beautiful sunset. He paced around for a while, nervous, waiting for people to pass, and then he got down on one knee and asked me to marry him, presenting me with the beautiful ring I had picked out months before. I still can’t stop staring.
Then, one of my good friends came running across the street to us. She had been hiding across the street taking pictures of the whole thing, and the two of them had gone to that spot the day before and scoped everything out, the perfect spot for photos, etc. It was so thoughtful, and the photos turned out beautifully. So now we have those to look back on forever. Then after that, he took me to a very nice restaurant in town for dinner that I’ve always wanted to go to, and we had the most amazing dinner and dessert. It was such a beautiful evening. I’m so excited to start planning!! 🙂
