Plus I am excited to be able to add any new tips and ideas I pick up to this blog as I go through my own wedding planning process. Ladies, I hope you will comment back and share all of the tips and ideas you have learned as well.
So let's begin at the beginning. When brides come in our shop I LOVE to hear how they got engaged, so I hope I am not presuming that the feeling is mutual. But to share my and my fiance Chad's engagement story we first need to take a little walk down memory lane. Below is a brief history of 14 years of friendship, 6 months of dating, and one engagement night. Enjoy!
|High School - I had a little crush on him back then :)|
|College. My parents still claim he played a role in my decision to go to Dayton...|
After college we kept up socially and often were each others wedding dates
|At a graduation party in 2008|
|Wedding dates in 2009|
|Finally, at a June 2010 wedding, decided to give dating a try|
|Our courtship ensued|
|Until one December day, he popped the question|
|I alternated between excitement|
|We toasted with champagne my parents got for their 25th anniversary in the glasses my grandparents toasted with at their 50th anniversary|
|Here's to 50+ years together|
