I know this blog is supposed to chronicle our life as newlyweds, but most people wonder how we got here. It all started with the proposal. W worked so hard to make it memorable and magical. Here’s how it went down:
You see W had a new job that was 3 hours away from A. After the long distance relationship began, W and A planned to meet each other in the Blue Ridge Mountains. W insisted that A leave work early on Friday afternoon in order to beat traffic and arrive in time for dinner. She had no idea that anything was going on, as W had only started his new job a week earlier.
A actually beat W to the destination that afternoon. Once W arrived, he told her that they were meeting friends for drinks before going out to dinner. They walked to the friends’ garden that overlooks the mountain ridge, and A asked “Where are they?”
This began W’s explanation, a short walk around a corner that revealed champagne and hors d’oeuvres, and then he dropped to one knee and asked her to marry him.
She said yes and they excitedly hurried to dinner to celebrate. When they arrived, A found more surprises as her parents and W’s family were there to celebrate too!
Needless to say, that proposal started it all: the planning which led to the perfect wedding, the wedding led to the ahh-mazing honeymoon, and now we are back to present time where A and W are blogging about life as newlyweds.
