- Wedding: April 2011
My fiance and I went on a beach trip in August, a week of us and 4 of our other couple friends splitting a house on the beach in NC 🙂
Prior to the trip my now fiance had mentioned he’d propose on the trip- long background as to why that came up, but it worked for us. New place, whole week, I knew he could still surprise me. Which he did….one day, around noon when I was already drunk he swam up to me underwater and got down on one knee and bubbled out “will you marry me” then he put the ring on my finger and said “did you catch that?” LOL! I was so…shocked at the time…I was drunk, confused, a little dissapointed that I had a ring before actally HEARING “will you marry me”…haha, looking back now I chuckle but at the time…oh boy *roll eyes*
Oh, and he proposed with an antique ring he bought on vacation because once he was there the jeweler called to say “the” ring wouldn’t make it to him…so, fast forward to August 19th….my fiance and I had dinner reservations at the Melting Pot. We’d been talking about going, nothing went off in my mind. We left early, got a drink at Greene Turtle and then went to dinner.
At the end I saw him sort of get stiff out of the corner of my eye, so I turn and he has a ring box open with the most beautiful, perfect, so my style engagement ring and asked me to be his wife. I had the wonderful cloud 9, OMG, am I dreaming? moment I’d hoped for.
We’ve been dating 4 years and our wedding is 8 months away!
