My platinum band on the left and a palladium band for the groom:
Greg proposed to me in Vegas on February 15, 2009. He made me wait! This was our second trip to Vegas together, and on our first trip, we stood on a bridge watching the Bellagio fountains and I just loved them. On our second trip he secretly made reservations at the Eiffel Tower Restaurant to have their award winning food. He had planned to propose at the top of the replica Eiffel Tower right before dinner, but when he asked me if I wanted to go up before dinner -- I said let's go after! So I ruined the plan! He reserved a table overlooking he fountains, and the meal was fantastic. After dinner we went to that same bridge to watch the fountains... and there we stood, him behind me with his arms around me. He began talking about the promise ring he gave me which was on my right hand. While he was talking about it, he slipped it off of my finger to read the inscription inside: in aeternum - for eternity in latin. I began to get nervous about the promise ring being off my finger and asked for it back. It was then he pulled out the engagement ring and asked if I would like to have it! I was speechless! Then he said "will you marry me?" Of course my answer was yes!
Here is the view from the Eiffel Tower Restaurant and a shot of the ring from our e-session:
