Recently I was asked to tell the story of my engagement! It was quite a memorable one and I couldn’t have been more surprised! We took our first vacation together last year in August ’15. We drove down to my home state of Florida and went to Disney and Universal, of course, so we could go to Harry Potter world. We made our first stop in Daytona Beach so Matthew could visit his late fathers wife where they lived together on that beautiful coast line. After two days we made our way to Orlando, found ourselves a random hotel and enjoyed the city for the night. The next morning we headed to Universal bright and early as to try and be the first ones into park. We weren’t the first, but were in a group of about 10! So, close enough! First stop was Ollivander’s Wand Shop! We sat through the little opening scene and watched two little girls get chosen to have wands picked for them, and then watch them beg and plead with their parents to purchase them haha So then it was our turn to go into the shop and find wands of our own! The night before we had researched all the wands so we could immediately pick out the ones we wanted! At this point everyone else had exited the shop and made their way into the gift area next door. It was just alone in the shop! What a perfect coincidence! and then it happened…..
I immediately burst into tears and shouted “DUH!!” at his proposal haha It was incredible. I don’t think I could have asked for a better proposal than that. He’s a keeper, that Matthew.
We went on to spend two full days at Universal and then spent two days with a friend on mine in Orlando that i’ve known all my life. It’s so crazy being back home and seeing how things have changed. I miss it so much sometimes.
Later in the year we had our engagement pictures done so I thought I would share some of those as well!
And the best one of all……….
I hope you’ve enjoyed our story!! ❤
