- Wedding: November 2011
My name is Amber. I just wanted to share my proposal story since I am new to the Weddingbee. The proposal happened almost 2 years and 3 months ago, but it still brings a smile to my face.
My FH and me met while in college. The first time I actually saw him was while I was returning to college my freshman year after Christmas break. I was waiting in the Denver airport when I saw him walking awkwardly near the gate. I thought he was a pretty good looking guy. It was after this that I noticed he had a backpack from our college, so I was interested in finding out who he was. Somehow I just knew then that I was somehow going to be with him.
Over the next two years I saw him briefly and found out who he was. Finally the spring of my junior year we had a class together. We flirted like crazy and there was just this instant connection. After a few mishaps in trying to set up a date, we finally went out together. We watched my favorite holiday movie “Elf” then I cooked him dinner.
We dated for a year and 5 months when he proposed on April 18th, 2009. He took me out for an ice cream cone in town (since they are my favorite) then drove to the gazebo on the school grounds. He took my cone then told me to go sit in the gazebo. He came to me holding the cone with the ring sticking out. He said, “Will you spend forever with me?” I said “Yes, but you asked the wrong question. You’re suppose to ask if I’ll marry you and get down on one knee.” He then started to get on one knee when I told him I was kidding. He then asked, “Will you marry me?” I said yes and gave him a kiss/hug.
It took us awhile to set a date, but we finally decided on the date of our first date which was November 12th, 2011. There is a little over 4 months left and I’m so excited!!
