- Wedding: April 2014
We actually go engaged a few times…So enjoy the stories! We actually knew from like the first week we were together we would end up married someday. we just clicked that much. Was litearlly love at first sight! But we waited for about 2 years and actually broke up for a month in there and go back together.
The first time I actually proposed to him. I got him a ring and we were hanging at my house one night. he went to the kitchen or something and i ran out on my porch and lit a bunch of candles closed the curtain so he wouldnt see me. then i called him out there. when he came out he was just like what the heck is going on. then i got down on one knee and he just turned red and started smiling. i said i love him and couldnt imagine my life without him and if he would do me the honor of being my husband. then i pulled out the ring and he just started laughing. he put it on and said just. he said it was the sweetest and most romantic thing ever but he still wanted to be the one to ask me. so we continue..
The first time he did it to me was actually really crappy. We were on vacation together and were at this gift shop and i found this ring that I just fell in love with. So he got it for me and I ended up wearing it right away. So was never really was proposed to jsut got the ring. But he wanted to do an actual proposal and I of course wanted one too so he asked for the ring back one day so I knew it was coming. One night when we were saying good night out by my car he asked if i would dance with him in the street. I thought that was weird but i turned around to reach in my car to turn on some romantic song for us to dance to. when i turned back he was on one knee behind me holding my ring. I thought it was super sweet.. he asked will you marry me…offfically? lol. i of course said yes and we kissed and finished dancing to the rest of the song. I would have been fine with this proposal but he didnt think it was good enough apparently so we continue with the final proposal…
he took me out for dinner to one of our favorite resturants. we talked over dinner about marraige so i kinda expected something possibly at dinner but nothing ever happen. he had me take off my ring tho so i knew it was coming. after that we went for a walk down by lake michigan (we live in milwaukee), it was a moonlight night in summer. it couldnt have been more beautiful. we stopped at a bench and sat for a while looking at the stars. suddenly he slide off the bench and got on one knee and took my hand. he said he loved me and wanted to spend his life with me. then he pulled out a new beautiful ring (which is what i have now). it took my breath away and i started tearing up. i said yes threw my tears and he got up to kiss me. this couple near by saw everything and came over to congratulate us. it was amazing and definatly the perfect proposal. I also surprised him that night too with a new ring as well. the one he had that i got him before he didnt really care for and it was too big anyway. The new one he will be doubling as his “mangagement ring” as wel as his wedding ring
