Just a few months ago, the love of my life asked me to marry him.
And I said “yes!” We’re engaged! Yes, he asked my parents for their blessing first. Yes, he hired a photographer. Yes, he made sure my best girlfriend took me to get my nails done first. And yes, our engagement was under a full Blue Moon in Newport, Rhode Island.
Our Engagement Story:
Kevin and I are from the same hometown and have known each other since elementary school but did not become very close friends until we both attended the same college, Bridgewater State University. While he had a crush on me since high school, in college I deflected his attempts at wooing me for about two years of outings that he considered dates and I considered hanging out as friends. Finally, I came to my senses and let my guard down. After a little over a year of dating, he proposed to me under a full blue moon this past July on the Newport Cliffwalk. Newport has always been one of our favorite date spots, making it such a sweet and thoughtful place for our engagement.
While our engagement has just begun, it has already been so much fun and so filled with love from our loved ones. I am so thrilled to be able to write about this exciting, new adventure. I look forward to sharing what I am learning along the way with my family, friends and clients through the DbG Blog! Many of my friends and clients (as well as prospective clients) have great information to share regarding wedding planning, I would love to hear your tips in the comments or by email!
I would like to send a special thanks to Elizabeth Holmes Photography for capturing our engagement moment! Please check out her beautiful work.
