Ya’ll, I’ve had such a hard time keeping quite about this for the past week, but now I can spill the beans… I’M ENGAGED! This has been something my boy- I mean, fiancé have been talking about for a while, but he’s the type of person that will sit and stare at the order button on Amazon for literal hours before buying something (seriously…) so I didn’t have my hopes up for it happening anytime soon. Boy, did he surprise me!
When Jered and I had talked about getting engaged, I told him I wanted two things 1. I want the moment caught on camera and 2. I want to be dressed nice (so not in pajamas with no makeup on), I think he did pretty good!
On December 30th, he took me out to dinner for my birthday to a nice restaurant we’ve been wanting to try. Before dinner, he made me promise that we would go out for cocktails after because “he really wanted a good Old Fashioned,” I may be notorious for getting sleepy and just wanting to go home!
Instead of heading inside for cocktails, Jered suggests we walk around the park for a while, since it was the last day all the Christmas lights would be up.
He got down on one knee and asked me to marry him, to which of course I said YES! We were surrounded by beautifully lit up trees in a secluded section of the park, it was perfect!
After we had a quick photoshoot and then actually got cocktails while excitedly texting our friends and family!
Thank you so much Sukilynn for the beautiful photos! I can’t wait to start sharing all the wedding planning details with you guys!
