Last Tuesday, Alec and I visited Sonnenberg Gardens during Rose Week. We only had a few hours, but Alec insisted that we stop by. We both love the place and it was Rose Week, after all. So, we squeezed it in between lunch at my Grandmother's and Alec's dentist appointment an hour away.
After about an hour and a half of wandering around all of the gardens and in the mansion, we made out way back to this beautiful site, where many of the wedding ceremonies take place. We sat under the pergola for a few minutes and talked about what great potential Sonnenberg has as a wedding ceremony venue in general. Alec was being quite the romantic, kissing my forehead and telling me he wanted to spend forever with me. After a little while, we decided to get up and keep walking. As we stood up Alec offered me his hand, twirled me around in a circle and then pulled me in for a hug. While still under the pergola, he got down on one knee and asked me to marry him.
And, of course, I said yes!
Apparently, he has had the ring since April and asked for my Dad's approval way back then. My family had been keeping this secret from me for quite a while.
Now I am a bride-to-be, a future Mrs. E!
