Our Engaging Story

Recommended Posts

Last Thursday, Nov. 20th was my fiance's birthday. We were at dinner in St. Louis with my parents. So dinner was over and we were finishing out glasses of wine...Michael thanked everone for a great dinner and birthday....he quickly followed that up with stating (and getting down on one knee) that the only thing that could make his birthday any better was me agreeing to marry him! OMG!!! I was so surprised.


I immediately errupted into tears. Lots of tears. Tears of joy, but it was kinda embarrassing. You know I said YES! The restaurant burst into applause...lead by my mother. And then he put the beautiful ring on my finger.....which started more tears. The crying continued with every happy phone call Michael made on the way home, once we got home and were alone, when we went to bed, when I put on the ring the next morning, everytime I told the story at work.....and so on. I am sure you get the picture.


We have been talking about getting married, and even have the date pretty much set. But it was something about it being said in public and with my parents that made it all feel real. I wasn't even thinking about him proposing that night....not on his birthday! I was....and still kinda am blown away. I found myself looking at the ring all day at work yesterday. Answering emails was actually fun....gave me an excuse to stare at my ring and not be obvious. The word at work spread like wildfire. I even had my sales staff from Phoenix and the east coast congratulating me! Wow!


Ok....this has gotten WAY longer than I had intended. So anyway.....we have a tenative date of May 2, 2010 set. Destination is unknown.....we are think of everything from Antigua to Napa.

    • Hello everyone. Who have a destination wedding in 2020? Do you postpone it or celebrate? Please share with you experience.
    • Now we can say life is divided into before and after. And only now I understand our life was so good when there were no restrictions and quarantine. Thank you for sharing this beautiful wedding story. We also got married before the pandemic, and we had a beautiful wedding and a wonderful honeymoon. And during the quarantine, my husband lost his job and was depressed, we had big family problems that could lead to a divorce. Fortunately, I found a blog with marriage advice on how to avoid divorce and we passed this test.
