- Wedding: June 2013
As a little girl I always wondered who the man would be that i’d walk down the aisle with. I had no idea that he was a child growing up in Scotland in a completely different world from mine. I wonder if we were destined to bet together. If only someone could have told me that at 28 I’d meet the man of my dreams. We met during a boot camp class and I know now that if someone can fall for me the way i look at six in the morning with little makeup and sleep still in my eyes he was a keeper.
He proposed three days before Christmas under an enormous lighted Christmas tree. We celebrated with champagne and the perfect dinner. It was the perfect day especially because I was totally surprised. i’m not sure the excitement from that night has worn off yet and i hope it never does.
I still cannot believe that after a year of dating we are now engaged to be married.
In my wildest dreams i never pictured myself planning a destination wedding in Scotland. He has a large family and mine is very small so it only makes sense to have the wedding there. If any of you have done a weddings in Scotland, St. Andrews in particular i’d love help with finding vendors.
If you don’t know i’ve called myself Ms. Shortbread since Scotland is famous for it’s shortbread 🙂
