So…you guys didn’t exactly get the whole story last week when I told you about our new home. We actually got engaged the day we closed on the house! We closed during my lunch break, and planned to have take-out on the floor of our empty house after work and be all cute and stuff. Well, when I got there, he had a table set up with champagne and candles and I knew something was up. Then he reached for his pocket and got down on one knee…and you know the rest!
The past week has been a blur of excitement, happiness, and smiles. We had friends and family over all weekend to celebrate our engagement and share our new home. I feel so loved and blessed!
A huge thanks to my best friend Kristen for taking these amazing photos!
The girls also brought me the cutest engagement gift: wine, champagne, and wedding magazines! We had a fun time flipping through these after we drank all these (but before we had a 90’s themed dance party in my living room).
DK and I have been together for a long time. Probably officially 5 years at this point, but we truly met TEN years ago in high school and actually dated for a while back then! I think we’ll have the wedding at the high school, what do you think? Kidding. People are asking us if we’ve set a date, but we won’t know the date until we pick a venue. We’ve been talking about our wedding long before we got engaged, and never made any decisions. So now the pressure’s on!
Any advice for wedding planning? Help!
