The Proposal: Mike and Meg

Tuesday, April 16, 2019

Hello everyone :)  This blog post is going to be so fun to write (because all I do is talk about him) because it is all about how my fiancé Mike and I met and how he proposed to me!  Seriously, the best day of my life by far.

All of the amazing photos in this blog post were taken by the beautiful Jessica Husted Photography

Let me give you a backstory about us first.  We met in February of 2018 through a mutual friend we had named Taylor.  Taylor and Mike were best friends from college and I became very close with Taylor from some other mutual friends.  Basically, we both were over at Taylor's apartment all the time, probably watching the office or playing catchphrase, and I remember Taylor asking me what I thought about Mike.

Of course I thought he was the cutest human ever, because who wouldn't? Seriously, have you seen him?

Anyway, we were constantly hanging out and getting food all together and spending 90% of our time outside of work and school with each other.  I knew he had a crush on me and of course I had a crush on him so it quickly grew into something more.  

Many nights of watching the office, playing bingo, and playing catchphrase later we went on our first date to Olive Garden on March 16th and I remember every moment and what he was wearing, everything. He asked me to be his girlfriend on April 16th, 2018 (1 year ago today!!!) and I said yes, obviously.

We had only been dating for less than a month before he moved 6 hours away to Michigan for an internship.  That was one of the hardest 12 weeks, especially being a new couple, but we both drove back and forth on weekends to see each other.  I honestly think we only ever missed one weekend.  But let me tell you, distance really does make relationships stronger.  We spent so much time together and we fell in love so fast, but if its right you just know.

We started talking about getting married in June.  Two months in and we were READY. We just knew right away that we were made for each other and that we wanted to spend forever with the other.  Us getting engaged and married was never really a surprising thing.  By that I mean,  it wasn't like one day he just popped the question and I didn't expect it at all.

We talked this through so much, we were so prepared and we were on the same page every step of the way.

It was all we ever talked about from that day forward, getting to spend the rest of our lives with one another.  I remember when he first told his mom that he wanted to ask me to marry him.  I was on a  bus in NYC with my mom and I remember how nervous he was to ask her.  He finally did and of course she was so happy for us and gave him amazing advice.  I remember her texting me saying how happy she was for us and how excited she was to get to know me more.  It was so cute.

Then he asked both of my parents for their blessing, which was really important to me and to him.   I remember how nervous he was to ask my dad especially because I'm his youngest and last daughter to be married, so it was a big deal!  I knew he was going to propose, I just didn't know when, and let me tell you...the anticipation and waiting was KILLING ME.

Everyone knew something except for me, and that was the when.

Funny story: we knew we were getting married so we had started looking at venues just to look and see what was out there.  We visited a gorgeous venue on October 14th, 2018 with both of our moms even tho we weren't engaged yet because it seemed too good to be true.  I could tell this was the place I was going to marry him as soon as I got out of the car.  We booked our venue that day, 2 days before we even got engaged.

This is a picture my mom took of us at the venue that day!😍

We had been talking about getting professional photos taken of us just to have some nice photos, so when he booked a session I did not think anything of it, I don't know why lol!

Finally, we had our photo session on October 16th, 2018, our six months.  It was a sunny day, but super cold, but it was so worth it.

Jess took a bunch of of pictures of us and then she wanted to take some candid shots of us laughing and him spinning me around, which is cute as heck.  So we did it once where I was facing her camera and he was behind me and then would run up and pick me up and spin me, the first time he body slammed me and knocked the wind out of me on accident.  But thats okay, we got cute pics from it and it was such a funny moment.  

So we did it again.  I was waiting for him to run up behind me, nervously waiting to potentially be body slammed again for what felt like forever, and then Jess told me to turn around and there he was, down on one knee.  I don't remember everything that happened or that was said because I was just so excited and happy to see him and everything felt like a blur so I will let the photos do the talking.

So that's it, thats how it all happened. Looking back on these photos makes me so happy and makes me feel like I am back in that moment every time I see them.  We are loving planning our wedding and future together, and I can't wait to see what the future holds.

I can't wait to share more wedding posts with you guys and if you have anything in particular you want to see, leave a comment!
