Engaged!!!

https://icandotht.com/2014/10/08/engaged/

Hey everyone! Guess what?? I’m engaged! It’s been almost 2 weeks now, but I am still extremely excited.

It’s been a super busy time: planning central. I luuuuurve to plan, so I’ve been in heaven. :)

I wanted to show you a couple of photos from what some people (i.e., me) are calling ‘the best proposal… ever’.

Mario spent many months planning all the details, but his greatest achievement was that I had no idea! He chose a Harry Potter theme, which probably seems weird if you don’t know me. If you do, you most likely know that it couldn’t have been more perfect. (Harry Potter is my religion, and I’ve been working on converting Mario for the whole 8 years we’ve been together).

Our engagement day (which I just thought was a normal day) started with a trip to the Mornington Peninsula, where we had a delicious breakfast, went antiquing, and had an amazing lunch at Paringa Estate.

When we got home, I went upstairs to take a bath, and when I got out…

… this was what I saw.

I followed the trail of rose petals, candles and Harry Potter book (the whole set of new covers, OMG!) downstairs to a pedestal that Mario bought a few weeks ago. He had sanded the whole thing down and repainted it, just for this purpose! I had no idea – I thought he was just getting in touch with his crafty side!

And on the pedestal… the golden snitch, with our initials on it. Inside the snitch was this beaaaauuuutiful ring that Mario designed with the help of Peter at one of my favourite jewellery stores, Individual Jewellery. He ordered the  snitch online from Paul Pape Designs, who designs and makes custom pop culture wedding items.

Here’s a better view of the complete HP series with the new covers (!!!) and the frame that Mario made with the best quote in all the books: ‘After all this time?’ ‘Always.’ *wipes tear*
