- Wedding: September 2013
I’m finally engaged! We have been together for 5 years this past October and he finally proposed this past November 11th. It was so cute. My birthday was the weekend before and to tell you the truth, I was disappointed that there was no proposal after our romantic weekend getaway in Napa. Little did I know that he was planning on doing it the following weekend to make sure I was surprised. It worked! We were at brunch with my family at the restaurant we had our first date at. My fiance is a little more reserved and quiet than me so he does not usually make speeches in front of anyone. He got up in front of the whole table (and restaurant) clinked his glass with a fork and proceeded to make a speech declaring his love for me. He went into how this was our first date spot, how I almost didn’t give him a second date, how we have been together for 5 years and he wanted to make sure that we were together for the rest of our lives. He got down on one knee and proposed. 🙂 The whole restaurant and family cheered when I said yes. It was so cute — everyone was crying and I started crying, he got teary-eyed. My sister caught it all on tape with her iPhone and I look completely confused and surprised the entire time. It means so much to me that he professed his love for me in front of my whole family (including my grandparents) and an entire restaurant full of people–I know how nervous it must have made him. I’m so lucky and in love.
