  • Wedding: May 2019 - Green Bay, WI

My fiancé proposed on Fourth of July, and we host an annual party at our house for the holiday, so I unknowingly decorated for and cooked for my own engagement party!

I was SUPER surprised, and completely in love with my ring and the proposal. They got professional video (both my fiancé and his brother are in video, and I’m in media too) and also tons of photos since there was like 30 people at our house. My parents were there and his parents were also. 

My Future Sister-In-Law was the one who orchestrated everything along with my fiancé. She went with him to go ring shopping and he picked out the center stone and setting himself! Then she lured me into the house around 2pm (when my fiancé had planned to propose) and when I came outside she purposefully had me walk out onto our deck first (she was recording video from behind me) and when I walked out onto the deck I realized it was too quiet. When I came to the top of the deck steps I saw everyone had gathered in our driveway and was staring at me. I looked down and saw my now-fiancé at the bottom of the steps on one knee. 

My first reaction was shock and I stupidly asked: “Should I come down there?” *facepalm*

EVERYONE laughs about it still. He said “yes, only if you want to.”

So I walked down the steps and he asked “will you marry me?” and I giggle-said “yes!” and kissed him. CHEERS erupted from our friends and family. My parents hugged both of us and then his parents did the same. I hugged his brother and wouldn’t let go (I’m an only child) so I was ecstatic about getting a brother too!

Our deck was in SERIOUS need of a stain-job, since we just redid some parts of it, but luckily for the photos I wanted to keep I just photoshopped the color in (you can tell in these photos which one I edited, haha)

I was utterly surprised and overwhelmed with joy when he got down on his knee. I yelled “yes,” then yanked the ring out of the box and put it on my finger lol! My then boyfriend had to ask me to take it off so he could put it on my finger.

emmalicious :  incredibly socially awkward person here.

we were on a joint family vacation, his family and mine, we were at the beach, had been laying out by the ocean hanging out for like 4-5 hours, i was sweating like a pig, sunburnt, hair all frizzy and crazy, we went for a walk and when we headed back close to where everyone was he stopped and when i turned around he was on one knee and i immediately was annoyed and said “omg get up! people are going to think youre serious!” because i of course assumed he was just messing with me. and then i actually looked at him and noticed he had a ring and just stared at him quietly for a second and said “oh…. i see…. are you really sure you want to do this with me?” “yes” “like REALLY sure. positive?” “yes” at which point i realized what was happening, got really excited, and grabbed the ring from him, put it on myself, he got up, we hugged/kissed, and i said “oh, yes, btw, my answer is yes, but damn couldnt you have told me to throw on my sundress/cover up? i look like sh-t”tongue-out

Honestly I don’t even remember my reaction because I felt like I blacked out 😂 I can’t remember saying yes or what he said. I just remember him opening the ring box and I very awkwardly tried to hug him while he was still on one knee while also trying to check out the ring and then I started shaking so bad. Whenever I think about it, I kick myself for not taking the time to see the look on his face. I’m determined to get a good look at him when I walk down the aisle in a month!

He said “of course I will” so I guess he wasn’t too surprised by my proposal!

We had a mutual proposal agreement where we decided together and it brought us closer than ever.
