Proposals are a big part of any wedding story. It's how it all begins. That's the first question you're asked when someone finds out you're getting married. Therefore, it should fit you and your fiancée. We all love to hear the many ways of how people get engaged and this engagement story is no exception.
Meet Tyler and Liz. An amazing couple that is to be married in less than 150 days. Here's the beginning of their wedding story.
Black & Gold Meeting
Tyler and I did not meet until after college, even though we both attended Mizzou. We were both at a favorite late night establishment, none other than the Black & Gold. I had a great pick-up line at the time because a week before that I broke my wrist. So I was talking to a few friends and Tyler walked over and asked what had happened. I told him the story and ended with, "would you like to sign my cast". He did, we talked, but I didn't see him for about a week.
On another evening out I stopped in the Black & Gold before heading to a graduation party/bonfire. Tyler was there and I asked if he would like to go. We spent the rest of the night talking and laughing, having a really great time. Around midnight we came back to town and went our separate ways. It was close to 1 am and my phone beeped with a text that said, "had a great night, would like to see you again." I saw him the next Wednesday and we have not been apart since.
The Proposal – Tuesday, August 2, 2011
We had been on vacation for the week at my family's house in Michigan. It is a place I try to visit every year and have gone there since I was young.
I stood there for a bit being sad that we were leaving and heading home. I said, "Okay, we better get going," and his reply, "well I guess there is just one more thing to do." He takes my hand and says, "You know how much I love you, and how much I will always love you." I answer, "yes." As I am wondering where this is going, Tyler gets down on one knee (on the beach) and says, " Will you marry me?" The only words out of my mouth are, " are you serious?" and then " yes, yes I will marry you!"
After the hugs, kiss, and me staring at my ring for 5 minutes, we decided to go back to the house and tell everyone before beginning our 10 hour drive back to Missouri. A moment I will NEVER forget.
A beautiful proposal where Liz has many memories and a new one with her engagement. The location and everything sounds so perfect. Liz and Tyler have set the date for June 16, 2012 and we can't wait to see how their wedding unfolds!
