Our Proposal Story
November 19th, 2016 marks a very special day for us. As the title reveals, we got engaged!!
We began the day by visiting my favorite spots around Mystic, Connecticut. Since we were just relaxing and enjoying each others company, most of our day was not photographed. But to summarize, we packed a picnic and headed to Groton Long Point where there’s a gorgeous private beach that we like to sneak into from time to time. Afterwards, we looked at local art and shopped in downtown Mystic, one of my favorite things to do.
Eventually, Dan brought me to our favorite little beach to watch the sunset! Over the summer, we spent almost every afternoon at this beach. Being that it was mid-November, we were the only ones there.
Just as the sun had set, I thought the date would be over and we’d go home…
Instead Dan told me to close my eyes for a surprise.
Soon after, he turned me around to the beach gazebo, usually plain, but this time was beautifully lite up with Christmas lights that he had strung up the night before.
He wrapped me up in his arms and played our song, Baby I’m Yours by the Arctic Monkeys. We danced (or slowly swayed, whatever you want to call it) under the sparkling lights.
It was perfect.
As the song ended, he got down on one knee holding a gorgeous ring that he had picked out and popped the question!
The proposal was way more thoughtful and romantic than I could have ever expected! Dan has always been so caring. Seriously, he spoils me to no end. This entire night: the lights, the ring, the proposal, was the best surprise ever. I tell myself every day how lucky I am to have him in my life.
Somehow, just somehow he manages to be more amazing than he was the day before.
I can’t wait for us to spend the rest of our lives together!
