- Wedding: August 2013
OK … so here goes, my first post. My fiancee and I have been together for 2 years, living together for 1. We were both married before and knew immediately that we were going to be married someday. I never believed in love at first sight, but that changed as soon as I met him. I felt it, he felt it, so we figured, why not ??
The past 6-8 had been very stressful for us with our exes, family, work, school etc. We really needed a break and were looking forward to our family (3 children between us) vacation in July. Little did I know, on the morning of June 27, I woke up to a poem on my bedside, telling me how much he loved me, how lucky he was to have me love him and to pack because on the 29th we were flying to the place where wishes come true. Yes !!! Disney !!! I was beyond excited and surprised. On the 29th, we had the first flight out and were in Disney by 9:30 am. We had a super great day at the Magic Kingdom, went back to our hotel, got ready for dinner, headed out, had dinner with Pooh and friends and then the Wishes fireworks. We had a super great spot on the side of the Castle and it was really magical. He was talking to me through the fireworks, about our future, our wishes, and how he wished he could be more then my boyfriend, and next thing I know he is on one knee proposing. I was speechless. Literally LOL I had to say yes 3 times before anything would come out. I remember standing there, shaking, and just hugging each other. It was perfect ! I did make him repeat the proposal once we got back to the resort, because I realized that I totally didn’t remember hearing any of it.
I had not a clue it was coming. We had talked about getting married, but not for another 2 years. We were waiting, for financial reasons, so that we could “do it right”… or so I thought LOL He is super romantic all the time, so nothing he was saying made me think otherwise. He was calm all day and through dinner, and not acting nervous or anything. We talked a few times about rings, but I never specified what I liked, or wanted, just that I wanted to be surprised. He knows my taste and style and picked a perfect ring for me. I absolutely LOVE it !!
