Melissa & Will
May 26, 2016
PROPOSAL Location:
Lincoln, NE

Will and I had talked about getting married many times, we even went ring shopping together because I had a specific idea of what I wanted. I knew that the ring had been ordered and the timeline it was supposed to come in so I was anxiously waiting for the 2-3 weeks knowing it could happen any time. As the time passed I was starting to get bummed because Will kept telling me that they hadn't called and the ring wasn't done. So, Friday night came and I had "come to terms" with the fact that the ring wasn't in because it was Memorial Day weekend and we were spending time with both of our families. We were going to go to dinner and a baseball game and Will still wasn't getting to my apartment to pick me up and I was convinced we were going to be late (I am not a late person). He finally got there and when I went down to go outside he was standing at the door with a dozen roses. I thought "Oh that's so nice, he knows I'm bummed about the ring not being done but we are really going to be late." We went back upstairs and I put them in a vase and water and turned around to get ready to leave again and he said "I also have something for your hand" and got down and one knee and asked me to marry him. It turns out he picked up the ring and had had it for a couple of weeks already. I was totally surprised, it was the perfect moment, and totally worth the wait!

The ring:
My ring is a Ritani French-Set Halo Diamond Band Engagement Ring with a .53 round Forevermark diamond.
