When is your wedding date?

10/20/2012

How old are you/FI? (only if you wanna share)

We are both 23.

How did you meet?

In middle school science class. He has loved me since we were about thirteen. Several times thoughtout high school we kissed but I would then run scared. We had a falling out our freshman year of college and did not speak until we ran into each other at a bar during Christmas vacation senior year of college.

What do you/ Fiance do for a living?

I am working as a softwear engineer and he is an aerospace engineer.

What is your theme?

Mostly just a fall theme with pumpkins and fall leaves ( I hope the leaves cooperate with me! )

Maybe polka dots since I love them, but I’m still working on that πŸ™‚

What are your colors?

Plum purple and fall colors.

How did he propose?

The pre-proposal was very cute so I will start there. We were in the mall one day eating on a bench looking at a store with signs for engagement rings on sale. He just looked at me and said, “We should start looking at those, huh? ” It took me by surprise. A few weeks later we looked at rings together so he knew what I liked.

The actual proposal was after we had a home-cooked dinner of steak and crab legs. He said he was going to the mall and left. Then he came back in, not even two minutes later, and got down on one knee in my living room and asked me to be his wife. It was perfect for us. πŸ™‚

I was with my family opening gifts when my FI and his Mom come over so we can all go to breakfast together….except he has on a suit. I ask him why he is so dressed up and he said I wanted to look nice for Christmas. Meanwhile I am in a scarf and pajamas and all im thinking is dam, im gonna have to get dressd because my Grandparents are gonna wonder why I am so casual and he is in a suit. I was going to head upstairs to change when he said, lets open gifts first….Ok fine, no problem. Our anniversary was December 5th and he ordered me a gift but it was not ready in time so he wanted to give me that first, Which was a locket from Things Remembered. (Love it). He then says, I have another gift but I dont have a box for it… All im thinking is you cant get a box now everything is closed but I keep waiting to see what he does and he says the gift is him. He pulls out the ring box and kneels and ask me to be his wife…..Tears flow and after a long pause that must have been forever for him, I finally shake my head yes.

He had arranged for some live music (string duet) which at first I thought was kinda cheesey, but then I realized that they were playing a lot of our favorite music (namely bluegrass)- so it was super awesome! He popped the question down by the water and then we enjoyed some dinner and a few bottles of champagne. After that we headed to a friends house to share the good news- when we got there he had a small party of our friends waiting! Best April Fools Day ever!

When is your wedding date? October 20, 2012

How did he propose?

Fiance and I had been coming up on our Five year dating anniversary and my birthday, so we decided we could combine the two and celebrate by going away for the weekend. We had been talking for a while about getting married and knew that we would eventually.

I just didn’t know when the proposal would be. We went to a jeweler and designed a ring together, however I had no idea when the ring would be done or any of the time line details. He knows how much I love surprises so he wanted to keep our anniversary weekend a surprise so I did not know where we were going.

We ended up going to the mountains in PA and staying at a bed and breakfast that over looked the entire valley. After we got settled at the B & B I wanted to go back outside to the veranda and take pictures of the beautiful view. He agreed and brought along my birthday gift— which I just assumed was a cookbook from the looks of it. Up until this point I still did not think he would be proposing this weekend. I had thought he might initially, but my mother (who was in on it as he asked her permission) was very persuasive at making me believe otherwise.

Anyways, we went out on to the veranda to take pictures of the sun setting and open my birthday present. It was a scrapbook of our relationship. He had saved our first date movie ticket stub, and had pages of us from college, graduations, concerts, up until present day. The last page said “The next chapter”… and when I looked up he was on his knee with the ring.

I don’t remember much of what he said and we laugh about it now because he said I looked like I was going to pass out! Later that night we had dinner reservations at a great restaurant that specialized in crab cakes (my favorite). It was all in all a fantastic weekend!
