- Wedding: August 2015
We’ve been planning our wedding for a few months (although there hasn’t been much planning for a few months… more info on this post: http://boards.weddingbee.com/topic/support-long-post#axzz2lH3pWqPV) and I already have both my dresses, but now… IT IS OFFICIAL! … He proposed!
We planned a trip to Israel back when my health was a little better and last week I struggled but made a huge effort to go and not have to cancel everything (plus who doesn’t want to see close friends they haven’t seen in months even if it means going to another continent?).
We visited Jerusalem and spent a week there with friends and there were some crappy moments where I just wanted to hop on a plane and come home, I felt so sick and just wanted to come back home, but I’m so glad I stuck it out!
On our last night there, we went to the lights show at the Tower of David and it was beautiful! Being devoted christians, it had some extra significance for us. The show was wonderful and it turns out there was a medieval fair that night so there were fire dancers right outside the door and a ton of activities making the atmosphere amazing. We had both gotten dressed up and on the tower right after the light show I was taking photos of the view and when I turned there was a little box on the wall. He was way too nervous to speak (had been quiet the whole day) but just got on one knee and said “Sarah _____ will you marry me?” and before I could really answer he was slipping the ring on my finger haha.
So here you go… some ring porn, he gave me a stand-in ring, its a beautiful amethyst (birth stone) on a diamond, white gold, halo setting and my finger is a size 3 (3 and a bit). Since I do really love the setting I’m thinking of just changing the centre stone to either a 1.5-2ct diamond or a ruby (haven’t decided yet).
Here are also some photos of us on the night and the location, I am truly blessed to have the most amazing best friend and partner!
