He proposed on Christmas Day. We always spend Christmas at my mom's, so we can gift exchange, eat and have family time. This particular day, he made me wait half the day for my gift. Everyone had done their exchange, ate and did their family thing until I realized I still had no gift. Towards the end of the night, I'm in another area of the house. Half of my family was present when I got everybody calling my name. I walked into the living area to see him down on one knee, which surprised me. Best gift ever! I can actually say that was a memorable moment for me. I'll never forget the day I got engaged and how he made sure my family was present before he popped the question.
For the Groom: Walk us through the behind the scenes of creating this special day.
Creating this special day was something I went over in my head several times. Even though we have been together for a while, I would still get butterflies whenever I am trying to surprise her. I chose to propose to her on Christmas day because we are both big on family and I knew that would be a moment to share with them. As time got closer to that special day, I learned to trust myself and to not let my nerves get the best of me.
What makes your love special?
What makes our love special are a few things like the way he tells me I'm beautiful every day. How he texts me, "Just thinking 'bout you," throughout the day while I'm working, just to show I'm on his mind. The fatherly love he has for our children. The special connection we share by us both being Aries.
What was the theme of your shoot?
There was no specific theme. We both decided to go with a touch of color from our wedding palette.
Were there any memorable moments during the shoot?
The shoot in all was a memorable moment for us because these are our engagement pictures and it was pretty much a big deal to the both us.
What are you most looking forward to about your wedding?
Family and friends mostly and the fact I'll be saying I do to my best friend.
Have you started planning your wedding?
My wedding was on March 23, 2019. So, the planning is over. However it was by far the best day of my life.
Congratulations to the happy couple! We wish you a fruitful marriage and many years of wedded bliss.
