💍WE’RE ENGAGED 💍
Ya’ll I don’t even know where to start but the most magical thing happened while we were at Disney Aulani for my birthday…my boo proposed! YES I am ENGAGED! I am still in shock…it was the most perfect, romantic proposal I could have ever dreamed of so let me dive in and give you all the deets!
As you all know I am a MAJOR Disney fanatic and every year we typically head to Disney World to celebrate my birthday and our anniversary but this year my now fiance decided he wanted to switch things up and head to Hawaii so naturally I said we need to have a Disney element to our trip so Aulani became the only choice!
We checked in on February 2nd the day before my birthday and I was incredibly anxious because I was hoping he would propose since this was also going to be our 3 year anniversary!
So we are enjoying Aulani, I head to the spa the morning of my birthday, relaxing getting a body treatment while my boo gets a massage and then we head back to the room to get ready for a character dinner we booked for my birthday that night.
I finish getting ready and my boo says let’s head to the beach to get sunset pictures before dinner (knowing me I never one to turn down photos although I was suspicious at this point) so we head down to the beach and we start walking away from people who can take our picture so I’m looking around and then all of a sudden he says ‘Melissa’ in a serious tone, gets down on one knee and I burst into tears without another word being said haha He puts the ring on my finger and I am full on ugly crying I am so thrilled.
While I am in full crying mode out from behind the bushes comes Vanessa my fav photographer turned one of my closest gal pals who was secretly shooting the proposal and then took our engagement photos during our trip. This as silly as this sounds meant the most to me because it was something I told my boo I wanted so he remembered her, got her contact info, emailed her months prior and planned the whole proposal and shoot without me ever knowing…truly a man after my heart with beautiful pictures in mind ♥
My ring is a 2.5 carat cushion cut diamond ring…exactly what I dreamed of and wanted, my fiance did and amazing job getting it sized to perfection and knowing what I’d love especially since I had nothing to do with the ring selection process (he refused to listen to me haha :p)
Now comes the even better part…because I truly love Disney my boo and I decided we are going to have a DISNEY WEDDING!!!! AHHH I was never too excited about having a wedding because my family dynamics are a bit dysfunctional and I don’t have a huge circle of friends but the fact that I get to have the wedding of my dreams complete with Mickey Mouse at Disney World…now I am EXCITED ♥
I’ll be heading to Disney’s Fantasy Weddings Event at the Grand Floridian at Walt Disney World in Orlando in two weeks to begin getting inspo for the wedding!
Let the wedding planning begin! 💍
