How it all began...It was my freshman year of high school and Anthony was in one of my classes, I can't quite recall this, but he does ;) About the middle of my sophomore year I started hanging out with some of his friends...we became friends, went to movies together, he gave me rides, etc. Then one daaaaayyyyy, we were at his friends house, and we kissed! He immediately left the room! I was like WTF?? He said he couldn't "believe he kissed" in like a "OMG, you're like my dream girl kinda way" haha kinda cute!
We were together for 4 1/2 years after that moment! :)
I decided to go away for college and after my first semester decided that it wasn't going to work, so we broke up.
The NEW beginning (3 1/2 years later):
I was in town for Christmas and saw him out at a bar. We began talking and I went to his house after ;) The next day was the day after Christmas and we hung out all day, and then the next day again, then the next day I went back home to Chicago...meanwhile totally confessing our "long lost love for eachother" :)
About 8 months later I moved back to Rockford and we moved in together, on Christmas ( a special day for us), he proposed to me in front of our Christmas tree, on one knee, while I was sitting there with morning breath, glasses and in a robe!! If he could want to marry me looking like that, then I knew he was for real haha j/k!
I was soooo surprised! I cried, etc, etc, ....And later that day went to my family's house for Christmas and showed off my ring!
After about 2 weeks after being engaged, we were hanging out with some "married couples" and one of the girls had the SAME exact ring as mine! (Pure coincidence bought at 2 different locations in 2 different years!) It took me a while to muster up the courage to explain to Anthony that I really wanted something special that not one of our friends have! After some arguments he took my ring back and exchanged it for a single solitaire diamond that I LOVE! I know, "everyone" has that kind of ring too but STILL!! haha
Our colors are black and white with touches of damask, my dress is ivory lace, trumpet style with a cut out back, GORGEOUS! The BM's are wearing black satin dresses of all different styles bought at David's Bridal and the groomsmen are wearing all black tuxes, while the groom wears all black with an ivory tie. There's obviously a lot more details to post! And also alot more questions to ask!
