- Wedding: December 2014
Sorry for the late post, we just got back from our Engagement Cruise!!
My Fiance proposed to me on 12/7/13 on the Norweigan Epic cruise ship. We had just gotten into our room, and I of course wanted to look out over our balcony right away. I was admiring the Miami skyline and took a picture of it and then IT HAPPENED!
He had his arms wrapped around my shoulders and starting telling me how much he loves me and how happy I have made him these past two years. At this point I knew what was happening so I looked back at him and smiled and turned around. When I turned around he told me he knows everyone has been giving me a hard time for not having an O’ (his last name, and everyone we were cruising with, have Irish last names that all start with O’ ) and that he would like to change that. Then he bent down on his knee and asked me to marry him!!
I was so surprised!! Of course I said yes 🙂 I had a feeling it might happen on our cruise but wasn’t fully convinced – he did a good job throwing me off!
Our week was spent celebrating our engagement with his family on a fabulous cruise to St. Maarten, St. Thomas, and Bahamas! I couldn’t ask for more!
And yes, the ring was beautiful and perfect in everyway! He gave me a 14K rose gold ring from Gabriel with 22 diamonds in the band and a 0.53ct center stone. The center stone is an heirloom diamond from his mother, I think it’s so special that we are starting this tradition with her!
Pictures to follow soon!
