Well the wedding went off without a hitch but we have a few items that may be perfect for another bride's wedding vision. So here are some things for sale that I hope will help you!
**I live near Boston so local is preferable but not necessary.
New Maggie Sottero gown, never been worn, size 16, diamond white $500
12 Shepherd hooks
10 strands of acrylic beads used for my wish tree
So we came home from having pie and Juliano had decorated the bedroom in anticipation that I would say yes...there were rose petals all over the bed, he had taped signs of our saying on the walls, bought I bottle of champagne and a nightie for me. It was surprise after surprise after surprise with him.
We called his parents in Brazil - they already knew. We got to chat with them on Skype video chat and they had a big sign with balloons and toasts! It was so incredibly sweet.
It was a night I will never forget. Here are the few photos we have. You can see how I was obviously crying.
I love Bunker Hill Day.
Mellissa likes to say she went out on a date with her boyfriend and came home engaged because she had no clue Juliano was going to propose.
Juliano says he was cool as a cucumber even though he had sort of been lying to Mellissa for a month.
The couple decided to go to their favorite restaurant in Charlestown for their favorite dessert - raspberry crumb pie. Juliano an avid photographer decided he wanted to head up to Bunker Hill - another favorite spot - to take some nighttime pictures. Hungry and a little impatient, Mellissa went along for the pictures, stopping only to think it was very weird that Juliano was wearing a jacket in the summer time. Mellissa had a brief flash that he was going to propose but blew it off because he seemed so calm.
On top of Bunker Hill, Jul started taking pictures of the Boston skyline as Mellissa scoped out shots for him. But he had other things in mind.
While she had her back to him, Juliano quietly said, Do you know what day it is? Yeah its Wednesday, Mellissa replied. Yes but it is also Bunker Hill day, Juj said. Oh really, how exciting, Mellissa exclaimed turning around. But that is not why I brought you here Juliano said softly as he dropped to one knee.
Still slightly confused, all Mellissa could think was that he had hurt himself and needed help up. It was only when he held out the ring box and asked, Mellissa Knowles will you marry me, did she fully grasp the magnitude of the moment. Juliano was proposing to her on Bunker Hill ON Bunker Hill Day.
So excited and overwhelmed, she started to cry, then choked on her own hair, said yes, kissed him and promptly slapped Juliano on the arm lightly for tricking her. After calling her mom, they went and had pie.
That was the best trip for pie ever.
THE END or rather just THE BEGINNING.
He proposed right in front of where that couple is sitting.
