Save the Dates
And...I don't know yet...but somewhere ;)
My Save The Dates are handstamped and heat embossed to match my invitations. I chose to do a slideshow with music with the final slide requesting for people to save the date. I love them! Thus far I have gotten just the reaction I was looking for, tears of joy! It's a great feeling to know that your family and friends are supporting you and are looking forward to this marriage!

I'm so excited to become Mrs. Steve Gatewood Jr....
Finally! After seeing all of our friends become engaged and marry, he proposed.
On the day of my graduation, after receiving my M.Ed, we hosted a picnic at our new home. The picnic was to celebrate our new home, him becoming a Chicago Firefighter, and of course my graduation. Well, clearly he had more in store.
Fast forwarding through the chaos of getting all the things in order after graduation. He grabbed the mic and congratulated me on my success, commended me for being the first in his family and mines to have not only one but two degrees and asked me to come and give a speech. Well, me being me I just said I had nothing to say and thank you for coming. He says, well I will come to you!
As he wallked over to me,the soundtrack was laid and playing, which I was paying no attention to at all! He begins by saying how we met, and how he chased me for a couple of months before I actually gave my number, and he gets down on one knee and asks me to become Mrs. Gatewood! What! I was speechless and in tears! I love me some Steve, of course I said YES!
