- Wedding: August 2012
I am new to the bee so I really wanted to share my engagement story. We just got engaged this past saturday in Virginia beach. It was SOOOO perfect, words can barely describe how wonderful it was.
Anywho….we had gone to dinner at a very nice restaurant overlooking the beach. Afterwards, we headed out to the beach for a nice after dinner walk. I kind of had a feeling something was up because my Fiance was so excited about this walk on the beach and wouldn’t stop talking about it! As we made our way down to the water, we actually walked by a beach wedding that was going on (Good omen!!!). I wanted to put my feet in the water so we walked down to the waters edge for a little bit. After a few minutes my Fiance went back up towards the dry sand so I followed. We stood there and enjoyed the moment, the beauty of the beach, and talked about how perfect our weekend had been. Then he gave me a kiss and said “It’s about to get even more perfect” and got down on one knee. He took both my hands in his and said the sweetest things a man could say to a woman. He finished with “it was a year ago today that I told you I loved you for the first time and today I have a question for you, will you marry me?” I got down into the sand with him and said of course!!!!! We were so happy we began to immediately call our family and friends. Meawhile, two girls who had seen the whole thing happen came running over to congratulate us and offered to take some pictures for us. So we were lucky enough to get some great shots of us post-engagement 🙂
