Hello! My name is Maggie, and I’m engaged to this amazing guy named Alex. We’re 25 and 27, respectively. Talk about soulmates… cheesy word, I know, but that’s no stretch from what we are. When I found Alex, every cell of my being ignited.
Alex proposed on September 14th, 2010. We lived at the beach at the time, and we had this very special spot, Our Tree, down a breezeway off the coast with an incredible view (including my dream house!). He picked me up for his grandmother’s birthday dinner, but insisted we go have a drink at Our Tree first. I didn’t think twice about it, as that was a normal-every-day thing we did.
When we got to Our Tree, we talked and laughed for about ten minutes, then Alex got pretty serious and said, “I have to ask you something…” A million things flooded thorough my head that very second, as Alex dropped to one knee. The rest of the details are ours, but I’ll end that story with I SAID YES!
We were planning our wedding for July 21, 2012 (that’s our anniversary) when we found out we were pregnant! Great news, but the wedding planning was replaced with baby planning. We had our son, Elijah Jude on February 16th, 2012 and he is everything I’ve ever dreamed of! We stopped even talking about our wedding, leaving me thinking “I guess we’ll do it when we do it…” On June 3 of this year, Alex “re-proposed” and we decided to keep our anniversary/original date…. Leaving us with 6 weeks to pull off a stunning wedding!
Wish us luck!
