Engagement Stories!! :: enter to win :: {Socal wedding photographer}

Did you know, that Christmas Day is the most popular day for proposals? Followed in 3rd place by Christmas Eve and then 4th place is New Years Day. 2nd place is Valentines day, but we are not in February yet, so lets stick the others.

Anyway, with the most popular days for a proposal behind us, that means, so many people are newly engagement right at this moment! So, I thought we would have an engagement story contest! All the details are below, but first, I thought I would tell you MY proposal story…

The shortened version… my husband and I had our first date on my birthday in 2001. We hit it off, enjoyed each others company and started talking about our wedding pretty quickly. We figured out a location, I found my dress, flowers everything was planned and we were all ready to go! Well, except that he had not actually gotten on his knee and proposed with a ring… minor detail. But it was ok with it, I told him, I don’t need the ring. We are good.

Well, my bridal shower comes around in March of 2002. All the girls were there, silly games planned and LOTS of food! Before the shower begins, my boyfriend {still boyfriend at the time} walks in the door. I thought. OH MY GOSH, IT’S HAPPENING! Sure enough, he pulled me in front of all the women, got on his knee and asked me to marry him. AHHH, it was so sweet. Of course I said YES! And a month before the wedding, I had a fiance!

The following month, April 14th, we were married at a winery in Temecula. Here is a picture of our first kiss as husband and wife. I do have pictures of the proposal…but then are in prints…we were still using something called film back then. LOL
