Oh, I am loving these stories. All so sweet… enough time on threads like this, the world feels like such a happy place 🙂
When is your wedding date? October 13, 2012
How old are you/FI? (only if you wanna share) I’m 35 and he is 33.
How did you meet? At his family’s annual clambake – I was there as a guest of his sister, one of my closest friends.
What do you/ Fiance do for a living? I’m an attorney (and wanna-be writer), he’s finishing his PhD in Economics.
What is your theme? I’m not sure we have one, but there are going to be some library/book motifs throughout (our program has footnotes; the escort cards will be filed in an old wooden card catalog).
What are your colors? Burgundy and sand.
How did he propose? We were on Martha’s Vineyard (that’s where we met), and he took me to a beach on the western side of the island to watch the sun set over the water. We brought some steamed lobsters and a bottle of champagne (ostensibly to celebrate my sitting for the New York bar exam a few days before – I moved to NY for him a few years after I had been admitted elsewhere). Before I could crack my lobster, he began to to make a little speech about how grateful he was that I moved to New York for him, for our relationship, and…I interrupted to tell him that I loved him, too, but wanted to eat right away. I was really hungry! He told me to calm down, got on a knee, pulled out a ring and…. the rest is history. One of the best parts of the proposal was that a couple was walking by and realized what he was doing (apparently before I did) and took some great pictures of us, with the sunset over the water and this gorgeous sky behind us. We’ll treasure those shots forever.

I have changed my account and some things have changed so I wanted to update mine:
When is your wedding date? 10-12-12

How did you meet? A mutual friend of ours introduced us when I was in 9th grade. What do you/ Fiance do for a living? I’m a full time college student (graduating in December!) and I work part time. My Fiance is in his 2nd year of medical school.
What is your theme? I don’t really have one. I’m making our flowers out of books. I guess that is kind of a theme.
What are your colors? Black, white, and tiffany blue
How did he propose? The day before Easter he told me he wanted to give me my Easter basket. I immediately knew what was happening. He told me to open the card first. The card said to find the golden egg. So I found the egg. I was convinced the ring was in there… I opened it up and it was a folded piece of paper. I was like WTF? So I opened the paper and it said to turn around. When I turned around he was on one knee!
