- Wedding: October 2012
So it finally happened, and he proposed this weekend!!! I am beyond thrilled. Here’s the story:
We went back to my hometown for Labor Day weekend and had plans to go out to dinner on Friday night with my family. I definitely wasn’t expecting a proposal at dinner in front of everyone. As soon as we got there and sat down, the server came over and passed out our menus. I opened mine and seriously was in shock – all I saw was in red letters, WILL YOU MARRY ME? on a separate piece of paper. There was this special menu with the sweetest proposal ever written out by Fiance, but I didn’t even get the chance to read it before I turned to him and saw him sitting next to me with a ring box open!! It was all a blur but apparently I didn’t say a word and grabbed the ring! haha the whole time my family didn’t really have any idea what was going on, so I went back and read the proposal that Fiance had typed out, and at that point I finally said YES and we kissed and hugged and the family caught on.
Turns out Fiance was in contact with my dad and aunt and they had this whole thing all planned out. My two grandmothers were there and it was so amazing and special for them too (and my mom was totally in the dark until it happened and couldn’t believe my dad kept it from her!). We have a really busy fall and won’t be able to travel back to my hometown much until the holidays, so Fiance even set up a few appointments to see different venues! I couldn’t believe it. The whole weekend was such a whirlwind, but it was amazing and I am so happy! We are now planning a fall 2012 wedding and I’m super excited to be more active on the bee now that I am actually engaged. We spent the rest of the weekend celebrating with friends and family, and everything was just perfect. Now for the much awaited ring porn.. here’s my amazing Tacori!! (I was going crazy taking pictures in the car today haha)
