Engagement story from the bride-to-be:

It happened on January 29, 2015, my last nights on winter break. He came home from work that night and he said he wanted to take me out for dinner. I was reluctant because it was my last night with him and just wanted to spend some alone time. So we took a drive for ice cream and recapped about our lives together. We came home and got ready for bed. I rolled over and I hugged him and felt the box sitting on his chest under the covers and I screamed because it could have only been one thing. He said the most sweetest and charming reasons why he would want me to spend the rest of my life as his wife and with teary eyes and the biggest smile, I said YES! I had absolutely no idea and it was the perfect proposal. Quiet, sweet and stripped of all the extras- just us!

For the Groom: Walk us through the behind the scenes of creating this special day:

I knew she was the one for me so I purchased the ring, but I searched my heart for a way to propose to her. The night before she left to return to school I waited for what I felt to be the perfect intimate moment were nothing existed besides her and I and that’s when I presented her with the ring. At that point no words needed to be spoken, she was shown the extent of my love and yes was her reply!
