Jamaican Engagement ~ Mexican Wedding

Preface: I figured he was going to do it,but it was still a surprise and surreal. I made it real hard for him because I kept telling him to wait because I was trying to do my hair for dinner - we missed most of the sunset but it was awesome. Also the ring didn't fit (it was just a bit snug) so I had to go back to the room and stick my finger in the ice bucket before I could slip it on! There was NO WAY I was going the next 11 days without my ring! lol.
Here is his story and some pics!!!
She said Yes!
In early January, 2009, I had decided that I was going to propose to Annette, and I had already had a plan in mind: I was going to surprise her with a vacation. In my initial plan, I was going to propose to her in Paris... too clich©. Then, I was going to take her to Spain, however, that was too expensive. Finally, I remembered how she had always talked about Jamaica, and how she wished she could go back. So, Jamaica seemed like the natural choice. I began looking around and eventually I decided on the RIU Tropical Palace in Negril. I booked the trip, however, there was a few obstacles remaining. First, Annette had planned her graduation party during the time in which I had already booked our trip. Second, I didn't want to mess up her luggage. After discussing it with my Mom and her Mom I figured that it would be best to tell her that I was taking her to Jamaica as a graduation present. So, Annette's Mom put a picture of the resort, which she had obtained via "Vacation Magazine," in a box and wrapped it up. Annette opened it and a few days later we were flying to Jamaica. My plan was to propose to her on the beach on the first evening so that the rest of the vacation would be a celebration of our new engagement. However, getting her out to the beach that evening was entirely too difficult that evening. Somehow, we managed though, and we made it as the sun was just about finished with setting. We stopped at a couple of lounge chairs where I pulled out the ring and asked if she would marry me. Immediately, she dropped to her knees in shock and her eyes began to tear up and that is when she said Yes!
Don't mind the cuts - jeez I was not ready for hand close ups!
I got a little obsessed with the ring during the vacation
