- Wedding: May 2013
I had always wanted to have an intimate proposal just me and my boyfriend. We had talked about getting married so he naturally aked about my dream proposal and I told him that I wanted it to be just us two and not on a speacil day for example my birthday, new years, christmas, valentines day etc. because I felt it was too overdone. He on the other hand always wanted to have a proposal with family and friends present.
My birrthday is on April 15, which fell on a Friday this year, so that night we went out to dinner and then went back to my house to have a little cake with my family. He told me that his family wanted to throw a little birthday party for me on Saturday, it didn’t seem weird to me since I am very close with his family and they had thrown me parties in past years. They were going to do it at my house since we have a basment where we have all the family get togethers. So my boyfriend had to take me out of the house for them to “set up.”
We went to Starbucks
When we walked in all my friends and family started to sing happy birthday to me. After they were done my boyfriend point out a sign on the floor it said ” The first thing you have to do is smell the roses.” So a couple steps ahead there was a table with a bouquet of roses and they had a sign that said now turn around and give Victor (my boyfriend) a kiss. When I turned around he was on one knee and asked “Will you marry me?” I was so surpirised that I froze and didnt answe for what felt like a really long time but I finally Said YES and had everyone congraulate us.
I am actually very happy with the way in which he did it becuase having our family there was really speail and we were able to get video and pictures of it happening. I was the best night ever.
Sorry the pictures are so big I dont know how to make them smaller.
