a proposal surprise

April 11, 2011


Yesterday was one of the most special days! My best friends threw me the most beautiful bridal shower in the whole entire world and I can’t wait to share the photos with you later this week. I was already feeling kind of emotional opening my last gift from my bridesmaids and then Matthew surprised me by walking in with a gift of his own! I opened up this green polka dot box and there inside was a book. My first thought was “aww a guest book!” since we had been talking about how we still needed one. Then I took another look and saw the picture on the cover, originally thinking it was just a generic photo they put in as a placeholder. But then I was thinking, “hm those look like my shoes, and wait a minute that looks like Matthew!” And then I put it all together and started bawling! Oh my gosh, I am such an emotional person to begin with and this put me over the edge. Matthew hired a photographer to take photos of the proposal back in September and he totally surprised me! I had no idea whatsoever and to now have these images that capture such a life-changing event means so much to me. I’m seriously tearing up just thinking about it! ahh if I’m Wendy Waterworks now, what will I be like on the big day?! {a mess, I’m sure}
I love this guy so much and I can’t wait to marry him in less than a month! What an incredible surprise!
