The “Waited All My Life” Proposal
"My heart raced faster and faster, as I waited for our photographer to give me the signal. When she did, I rushed to set up the equipment and with shaking hands, her daughters and I managed to get the video started. Just as planned, Ilene stood in front of the monitors watching the first few pictures of her sister and brother-in-law come across the screen (Ilene thought we were taking the family photos because the two of them were moving across the country for work shortly after). I looked on as the pictures switched to show scenes of her and I, and of course, confusion played across her face. Then I watched as the other group of family and friends raced wildly across the park, eager to witness the moment. The whole time, I stood in awe, realizing what was truly happening. I still couldn’t believe it was finally here – through countless tears and trials and years spent hoping…here we were, listening to our family and friends share how much they loved us, and how inspiring and beautiful our love was to them. Then came the moment we had both been dreaming of. I held her hand in mine and the time stopped just for us. My voice spoke for my heart, declaring how my world had been completed the day we’d met, asking her to share a future with me…" #howsheasked People, this story from start to finish is wildly beautiful and I encourage you all to read it from the beginning.
