How the love of my life proposed!

Recommended Posts

On the eve of Spring Solstice, March 20, 2008.....the Story begins.


Patrick and April decided to carpool together on this day, with Patrick dropping off April at her office. April was not in the best mood this day, as they had a small argument....more less waking up on the wrong side of the bed.


As the day went on April thought it strange that she hadn’t received her usual phone call from Patrick, after all it was spring break and he was at work and he always calls just to say hi. April called Patrick several times a little worried that the argument from earlier may have him upset. When she called his work they informed her that he was busy with a customer or was simply "unavailable."


Patrick called April back around 4:30 p.m., and told her that he was on his way to pick her up from work. April said she would be downstairs waiting for him. 4:45 p.m. came, then 5:00...April decided to go back inside her office building and wait for Patrick inside the restaurant while having an after work cocktail.....5:15 Patrick walks into the restaurant, sits down, apologizes for being late and is suddenly in a hurry to leave. At this point April is not really connecting the dots....and she asks, "Why the rush?" Patrick replies, "Dexter is at home waiting for us," Dexter is their new puppy. So with that being said they tab out and head home.


The Proposal

April walks into their home first, and is greeted at the door by Dexter - they began to play. Patrick walks into the house, when April says, "You're cooking fish for dinner, I can smell it," Patrick responds with....."Um, no, not fish." Then April sits on the couch and looks forward in the direction of their dining room....


The room is dark with candles everywhere, every available space was a lit candle, the table was adorned with rose petals, the floor was covered with rose petals, the table had two vases filled with red, white, pink, and yellow roses.....the table did not have fish, but a beautiful dinner of crab legs, stuffed crab, shrimp, vegetables, salad, and Champagne....and the ceiling.....the ceiling had dozens of roses that looked as if they were falling from the sky (hanging by invisible string and invisible tape) and throughout were photographs of Patrick and April from the day they met until present; they were double sided and hanging from the ceiling with the same as the roses....


April is not sure what Patrick is doing at this point, because she is in total shock and thinking that this is all an apology from the morning's disagreement...she's in awe over EVERYTHING and can't believe her eyes....it was like a scene from the Bachelor, lol!


April then notices a huge telescope set up in the corner of the living room, and turns to Patrick and asks, "What is going on?" He then points to her table setting and on her plate was a hand written note that read: You are the center of my life, one who I cannot live without. Light is what you bring me. My world revolves around you, so I named a star for you to shine forever in the sky. You are everything to me.


Patrick then grabbed April's hand, turned her towards him and he got down on one knee, and said, "April Dawn, you are everything to me; I want to spend the rest of my life with you. Will you marry me?" And she said, YES!


And so it is written and so it shall be!

    • Good afternoon, I wanted to inquire if anyone has or knows someone who got married at this resort. How was it? How are the coordinators? Packages that were chosen. Any help would be greatly appreciated.   Thanks.
    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
