Eric proposed to me July 5, 2008 in my hometown of Detroit. It totally took me by surprise because I moved down to Dallas to get our relationship started October of 07.' I always told him that I expect a proposal soon (im sarcastic like that). Sure enough, we planned a trip to Detroit so that I can go home and see family and friends since it was a year since I was home last. I didnt suspect a thing! We were at a friend of mine house and she was planning her wedding. I told her FI that good job in being a man and proposing since Eric hasnt gotten to that level yet. Little did I know Eric had a surprise for me and I was talking all that noise in front of him. Anyhoo, he told me he wanted to go downtown and he made reservations for a restaurant he saw online. Downtown has a riverfront area that you can see the water and Canada across the border. We got there and walked around until it was time for our "reservations." He said he wanted to take some pictures, so after 5 people walked past, he asked one couple to take a pic of us. I didnt notice that the camera was on video, so he came up to me and I was ready to pose for the picture. He turns to me and then it happened! I was a bucket of tears, shocked, shaking, nervous and a wreck. I was able to get out a yes and thats how it happened. Afterwards, he arranged for a couple friends of mine and their dates were at the restaurant waiting for us. It was a perfect day and so unexpected!! I cried all weekend after it happened. Sorry, its sideways! My fiance had ACL surgery earlier in March and he got on his bad knee lol.
Little did I know, my big moment was coming any moment (pics before the Question)!
My friends and the newly engaged couple after our celebration dinner at Andiamo's!
Me and Eric acting retarded the day after!
Oh yes, I was cute that weekend too! Check me out! :) Ignore our junky hotel room! It was going thru some things!
BEFORE Proposal Day after Proposal, do you see the glow in my face?!
Here are pictures of my venue. Its the African American Museum of History in Detroit. Fiance and I had scheduled appointments to meet with other vendors and this was the first and only one we went to. We loved it from the moment we went in and talked to the coordinator. See the gorgeous sunset in the 2nd picture? Thats where the ceremony will take place! The last pic is the Contemporary Art Gallery where the reception will take place! The artwork remains on the wall!
I thought I put the monogram in my bio but, apparently not! Here is a monogram I had done for me. Its nice, but just not a wow factor or uniqueness to it. She did one with and without a border. Im currently trying to get some monograms done for me by some sweet PW brides!
