I met my fiance' while on a study abroad trip to London for theatre appreciation. I was completely oblivious to his feelings for me, and actually was a wee bit unsure of how to proceed with what I just thought was our close friendship that we had made during the trip. We spent all our time in London together, but it wasn't until I got off the plane in Chicago that I realized how much he meant to me. I missed him more than I had ever missed anyone. I tried to go to his gate that was leaving for Detriot but in an odd twist of fate, he had the same idea and went to my gate to look for me. We never found each other, but the next day we unanimously decided that we couldn't be without one another. He proposed to me on New Years, on the beach in Maui, exactly at the same time the fireworks show off shore began. It was perfect. Which is right for us, because we are a perfect match.
It will take place in the backyard of my grandparents home where I grew up. We have 10 acres of open field and 10 acres of woods so I want to get married at dusk in front of the woods with the trees wrapped with strands of lights and candles everywhere. The reception with be in a clear top tent with chandelier and wishing fountain. I am SO excited!!
