JLM COUTURE LOVE STORY # 4
It was 4th of July weekend of 2013 and my now-husband woke me up Saturday morning & told me to pack for a surprise trip. He wouldn’t tell me where we were going, despite my many guesses.
I had always hinted that I wanted to visit Savannah, GA. and when we pulled into a hotel near River Street, I was so excited! Part of me was thinking/hopeful that this surprise trip was leading to another surprise :) We had the most romantic night & during dinner, drinks, & sight-seeing I secretly kept thinking that he may propose at any moment.
But eventually the night ended and we went back to the hotel. I figured my guess was wrong & I left it at that, as being just a wonderful vacation.
The next morning, we were walking around Forsyth Park and Matt stopped an older couple & asked them to take our picture in front of the big fountain. I thought nothing of it by this point & was not expecting anything, since I figured the moment had passed the night before. But when he had given the camera to the couple, he had set the whole thing up for them to put the camera on video mode to record his proposal to me. While smiling for the picture, all of a sudden I look over and Matt was down on one knee & asking me to spend the rest of my life with him. I very happily said yes and we then celebrated with family that afternoon. I’m so glad that it happened this way, where I could still be surprised. It was perfect.
