    First off I can't say how happy I am that I landed apon this website. This is EXACTLY what i was looking for.

    My FI and I actully met on myspace. I was SUPPOSED to be working, and was clicking away wasting time on myspace and by fate alone, ended up on his page. I just thought he was the cutest thing ever and saw he was from the midwest (we both were living in California) I told my best friend and she convinced me to send him a message....so I did. We met out with a group a friends and he was hooked from day one :) We quickly fell head over heels in love with eachother and spent every waking moment together. 9 months down the road, he was graduating from a military school so both our families flew in. We had planned a dinner with his family and mine on the gorgeous beaches of la jolla. At sunset, he told me he got me a little gift for being so wonderful and supportive during all of his training. I opened the box to see a pair of earrings that I had wanted from this beach vendor and was BEYOND excited. I was raving to my mom how much i wanted the earrings. I looked at my FI and he was just smiling ear to ear and said there was something else in there. I looked down and the box, and removed the paper and then turned to him as he was down on one knee as the sun slowly set over the ocean.

    About a week after that, we packed up our bags in San Diego, drove to NorthDakota (where hes from) and then down to Virginia Beach where we live now.

    In a span of 9 months we have got engaged, moved crossed country and have bought a beautiful home.... Now we are trying to plan the wedding.

    I am really hoping to get ANY suggestions from other brides as possible. Because my FI is in the military, we are kind of governed by when they will allow him to take leave. We are currently thinking of doing Nov 28th (Sat after Thanksgiving) Yes, i know i'm cutting it close, but given our situation, we will make it work! I want something intimate and relaxed. I imagine it beachside or overlooking the ocean and someone plays a guitar. I do not want to have it in a ball room. Ideally I would lvoe to find a place that completly takes care of EVERYTHING. I am not so much worried about flowers, or table settings. I do not want anything extravagant. My FI is a country boy through and through and would want something more relaxed. I am just soooo excited to be marrying the man of my dreams...my cowboy. As long as we have our family and close friends there I'll be happy.

    Would love to hear any and all suggestions. We are open pretty much to ANY location :)

        AND.... here is the pic of the ring! It was just perfect. He went with his sister to pick out the ring and she said he had taken the different diamonds into the sun to see which one sparkeled the most. Thats SOOO SPECIAL coming from my FI who is the hunter/fisher mans man guy.

          This ring and setting looks almost exactly like mine. 2 carat brilliant cut four prong.....
          It's gorgeous but simple. What setting are you planning on going with.
