The Proposal

Last December, I got engaged to my fiancé, James, at Naples Canals in Long Beach, CA!

We went on a gondola ride and though I had my suspicions that he might propose, I really wasn't certain until our gondolier started singing "it's now or never..." halfway through the ride. That's when James asked me to marry him! 

As soon as he asked, I saw our friends standing on a bridge cheering for us! They made the night even more special, and we all went out to dinner afterwards to celebrate.

Our first date was to the Long Beach Aquarium, so having the proposal take place in Long Beach felt like we came full circle. We are feeling truly thankful, blessed and excited for what's to come! Also, don't be surprised if I have more wedding-related and DIY posts as I start planning for the big day!
