Hi everyone! As an aspiring wedding coordinator and a MOH/bridesmaid in 3 weddings (1 past, 2 upcoming) within the last year, you can bet your buttons that I was excited when my boyfriend proposed on our 2 year anniversary. Actually, it was just 4 days ago. If you know me, you know that I started planning the minute the ring was on my finger. Ok, so maybe it was before the ring was on my finger, but that is beside the point. The proposal was romantic and… cold.
Both being from (him) or near (me) Pittsburgh, we decided it was about time to see the tree and ice skating rink PPG Place for the first time. Christmas is one of my favorite times of year, so this did not seem odd that he wanted to take me here for our anniversary. Looking back, I should have seen right through his sneakiness, but luckily, I didn’t. I was excited to see all the displays. Of course, they were closed. We decided to just watch the ice skaters for a few minutes and then go to dinner early since the temperature was about 16 degrees that night. He asked how I liked the view. I loved it with all the glimmering lights and decorations. He said he was glad and was hoping I would. The next thing I knew, he was on one knee with a ring in hand asking if I would marry him. Well at least that is what he told me he said. I didn’t remember a word of it. All I heard was a girl in the background yelling, “Oh my god! Look! Look!” I just nodded since I couldn’t speak through the tears and hugged him with applause in the background. I know some ladies would prefer for the proposal to take place in a quiet and private place. Not me. I loved it! It was perfect. I am not a big fan of PDA, but there is just something about a man who isn’t afraid to profess his love in front of a crowd of strangers.
So, of course, the planning has already begun. We told our families and friends and changed our facebook statuses. You know it is official when the facebook status is changed. I will update often on my progress and with and tips and pointers I think of along the way. I hope you enjoy my blog!!
