- Wedding: June 2014
After 3 years of dating, my FIANCE (weird to finally say) surprised me last wk and proposed! We live in NC now so I went home to NY (by myself) for Memorial Day weekend to visit family and friends and celebrate my parents’ 27th wedding anniversary. Well, apparently he had the proposal all planned out with my best friends and parents! My friend and mother took me to lunch on a restaurant on the river and as we were leaving, my friend suggested that we walk along the water for a minute. Halfway along, out comes my FH walking with a big bouquet of flowers! Shocked beyond belief to see him (and of course being naive that he was just pulling a “surprise visit”), I asked him what he was doing there! I see my friend pull out her phone and start taking pictures and I finally realize what’s going on. After a 15 second “I’ve loved you since I met you” speech, he finally got down on one knee and asked me to marry him 🙂 I of course said yes and proceeded to jump around like a child and eventually started to notice that my family was all in cars in the parking lot. They had seen the whole thing.. we took pictures for a while and then went back to my parents house where an engagement party had already been planned! Such a wonderful weekend!
