- Wedding: August 2010
Anyway, I’ve been with my fiance since April 2004, and we’ve been
engaged since 2007, but we won’t be married until 2010. Why the wait?
Well, first, we both wanted to graduate our masters degrees, of which
we did in May 2008 and December 2008 respectively. And then, we didn’t
have jobs yet aka no income aka no money for weddings. We are practical
people, so we don’t want to go into debt for this, or pay $20,000 for
one day in my life.
Our tentative plans is to have a destination wedding in Colorado Rockies next summer 2010. We want to have a nice small intimate ceremony at Rocky Mountains National Park and then a nice dinner at nearby Estes Park or Allenspark. We haven’t planned much yet but just doing research right now.
OUR PROPOSAL STORY
Well, on our 3 year anniversary, we had a trip to DC. We stayed in a very nice bed and breakfast,
and just enjoyed some sights and being with each other. The unfortunate
weather was kinda bad, because we were freezing our butts off in the
wind and chill, but we made the best of it. It actually snowed, even
though it was in April.
Here’s two pictures of the bed and breakfast we stayed at.
The proposal was unique in a way, because it was done in our b&b
bathroom, yes, the bathroom, of all places, lol. But it was a really
nice bathroom with some angel murals and a high dome ceiling and a
clawtub, it was a quite romantic room/bathroom.
It was in the morning and I was brushing my hair and suddenly he
came up from behind me and told me how much I meant to him, and how
much he loved me, and how much he wanted to be with me forever, it was
the sweetest thing! And then he went down and asked if I wanted to be
with him forever, and of course I squeed and we hugged and kissed for a
long, long time.

My ring! We had actually chosen the ring together, we got it at Kay.
