Amy&Andy's romantic...almost disasterous story!

Recommended Posts

I'm going to copy and paste the story that Andy had e-mailed right after our trip...with my little comments pasted in for my buddies later. It's funny hearing it from his perspective with mine also.......

 

 

Okay so it went down like this....I am giving the entire story, its

long so

I apologize...

 

We went to Victoria for the weekend. Friday night I went home instead

of to

the gym and cleaned the entire house so we would not have to do it on

Sunday (Thank god because we were so hungover!)

when we got back. That night I told her it is "Amy's Birthday Weekend

Extravaganza" and I gave her one of four presents. (I needed a way to

throw

her off the trail that I might propose up there, so I got her a bunch

of

presents thinking she would never guess I had a ring) She opened up a

present with some nice lotions from Este Lauder or something. Then

Saturday

morning we woke up nice and early and I gave her the next present. I

had

created an itinerary of our trip. The entire last three weeks I had

been

playing it off that we didn't really know what we were going to

do....where

eating dinner, what to do etc....(it is the attachment) and it was

quite the

surprise. All of these pics have meaning to them. The luggage is our

luggage, the coffee cup are the cups we use at the lake, the pics are

all of

places we were going to go to, actual hotel pic, etc....She was really

impressed! I told her that she can draw and make scrap books but I use

the

computer! (It's so cute! He actually found pictures of my Dianne Von F. luggage!)

So we went to Victoria, it was rainy and cold....we wore spring

clothes..bad (I was wearing a little white eyelet blouse and brown pants which were soaked on the bottom, gold shoes and jewelery which Andy said he noticed and freaked out when I showed him my outfit since he was giving me a platinum ring!)choice...we caught a taxi up to the hotel...the pesos in my pocket

almost

got left on the front seat of the cab (that will be explained later)

but

somehow I managed to see them out of the corner of my eye and opened

the

door and put them back in my pocket. We could not check in early so we

left

our bags there, grabbed a quick snack at the restaurant there and I got

my

fishing license for the year across the street while she was getting

dry by

the fireplace in the lobby.

 

We got directions to the bus stop from two different people to go up to

Butchart Gardens....the cab ride was supposedly $50 and I was like, I'm

taking the bus....the directions we got sent us on a mile and half walk

that

didn't produce a bus stop and we saw the bus drive right by us! Crap!

She

is wet, tired, and I had to call a cab....but we finally made it up

there a

little late but it worked out. (I can't beleive I actually was still in a good mood when we got there. I was wet...my curled hair was all messy, and I had to pee so bad it hurt!)I had the ring in a little holder in my

wallet. I used the restroom and got it out and in my pocket. Still

raining

so carrying the umbrella, camera, everything was a pain in my ass.

 

My overall plan was to find a pond or fountain where we could make a

wish

with the Peso's that I "accidentally" grabbed thinking they were

Canadian

change. I had called a couple times in advance to go over the map with

a

staff member and it turns out the place they recommended I COULDN'T

find. I

am all stressed out as we are walking around the entire gardens and

slowly

getting to the end with no real good place to pop the question.

Finally

while in the Japanese garden, the last spot before you exit that area

had a

very nice private setting. Even Amy mentioned something like, ah, nice

and

private. (It was really beautiful. It's wiered that I even said something like, "what a cute little area" because it was the only place that was kind of private and secluded)

Well we waited for another couple to leave and then we went

in

there. She mentioned all of the coins in the pond and I said let's

make a

wish with these Peso's...we tossed them in together....well she made

her

wish out loud to have the weather clear up and the sun come out. I was

so

nervous I asked her what her wish was and she said "I said it out loud

already"....and I asked if she wanted to know mine. She told me "no"

since it

would not come true. I told her well you really don't want to know what I

wished for and she said no again.....I told her "well I am going to

tell you

what I wished for" I kissed her to give me a moment to think and I

went

down on one knee on the wet cement in the rain and said "I wished that

you

would say yes" and I got the ring out (no box) and I held it so close

to her

that she didn't see it at first and then she put her hands to her face,

heavy breathes, a couple tears, said something like "what, is this

happening??" and I said "marry me" She made me wait for sure....I was

on

one knee for what seemed like ten minutes....and she finally said yes

and

put the ring on. She was in total shock. I think she said something

like,

I never thought this would happen. (The ring looked so huge when he was just holding it in his fingers that I couldn't really say anything I was in such shock. When he finally said Marry me and asked my answer I said yes...and it did seem like he was down there forever. Then we kissed and took pictures and were floating all the way to the gorgeous restaurant. We drank a whole bottle of champagne to calm our nerves...then bought another one on our way back to the hotel...and drank that. I'll leave the rest to your imagination...but let me tell you theres something about calling your man a fiance that is dang hot!!!!)

That is basically it for the

proposal.

Oh I forgot, the Peso's were to signify our wedding which we want to

have in

Mexico. And the weather actually cleared up for the rest of the day

about

30 seconds after her wish!

 

We had lunch at the Dining Room Restaurant at the Gardens.... Local

sparkling wine and great food. We were both floating on clouds the

rest of

the day....almost like we were both drunk or something...total daze.

 

Dinner was still a surprise, I took her to Vista 18 which has a 140

degree

view of Victoria and the water from our seats. Great food and really

actually cheaper than Port Angeles. Then we went to the Bengal Room at

the

Empress for a cocktail. And that is basically the end of it. Easter

Sunday

closed everything down, which I had no idea before I made the plans and

we

ended up catching the morning ferry instead of the afternoon one.

 

 

Best personal regards,

Holy!!! What a man, what a man!!! I can't believe he planned a whole weekend for you! lol, and I love that he found pictures of everything, including your exact luggage. That's too cute! wink.gif

 

Umm ya... that one made me cry when he said "I wished you'd say yes". THIS is why I love to read the stories, omg - I smile all the way through.... and both of your wishes came true!!

I know! I was so impressed. Having to wait 4+ years for the ring he felt like he had to make it really special for me. I'll try to attach the itinerary (PDF) he made me; but it's saying it's too big.....any suggestionshuh.gif

 

It must have taken so long to find all of the meaningful pictures. Seriously all the pics are from some aspect of our lives. Finding my luggage...what a freak!

 

Also I have to feel bad for the poor guy seeing as how I can be such a brat when plans get off.....good thing I kept my cool:) I've been making him such thoughful presents since we started dating he knew I would appreciate something like what he made. It was such a great weekend....definately greatest memories ever!

We are in confused on which dress to wear for the wedding ceremony. Any suggestion on lesbian wedding dress? I prefer white, whereas my partner prefers of-white. Which one do you think will look good? Should we go for same dress or different one? Share your thoughts.
