- Wedding: August 2013
I just had to share my proposal story!!! I’m still on cloud 9 these days, I’ve found the sweetest man in the world!!!!I can’t believe I’m a bride to be!!!!
I didn’t see it coming, I thought Jose was with his family for Christmas and I was with mine. I get a surprise gift—a DVD—on Christmas Eve that ends up being from Jose and has a surprise ending—well I’m sure you know the surprise by now 🙂
I just had to share this beautiful thing he did for me! Aren’t we brides just so lucky!?!?
This is the shortened version of the video he made for me when he proposed. The personal family messages have been removed. For more details and time stamp info, see below.
00:00 – 02:04
On Christmas Eve, the family traditionally opens one present before going to bed. Alicia got one extra present this year, which contained a DVD I had made for her as a surprise. Alicia was under the impression that we would be spending Christmas apart.
02:04 – 05:29
The notebook is something Alicia and I started early in our relationship, writing down different experiences and memories as we went along. This slideshow is a collection of various photos and memories we’ve had.
09:26 – end
The video shows that I am going to begin the next chapter of our lives together as I depart Houston and drive to Muenster to propose to Alicia. Unfortunately, the hidden camera that was capturing Alicia’s reactions stopped recording just before this final part. You can see me waiting outside for my cue on the video right before I ring the doorbell.
