All you need is love,
LOVE IS ALL YOU NEED.
A day that I will always remember with a smile, a story that will always be retold, the start down a whole new path. SO, a month ago today I got engaged. It was perfectly us and traditionally beautiful. We headed up to the Garrison/Cold Spring area along the Hudson in Upstate New York like we do every year for our anniversary weekend for the annual Hudson Valley Shakespeare Festival. It has become a special place for us, it is the place that flourished our relationship and then became a tradition.
Last year I told you all how it all started while sharing our intimate story and showed you our romantic getaway here, the year before I simply showed you our trip here, and now I will show you this year's adventures and when I finally said yes, after a plethora of "Oh My God"s.
Its so crazy because he had me fooled, oh so good. I knew it was coming -this was our sixth summer spent basking in the sunshine and snuggled tight on breezy summer nights. I was the anti-marriage girl, "all we need is love", I would say. Though Aaron always says he always knew he would marry me, I merely always knew we'd be together forever. He managed to convince me he couldn't find a diamond, but that he was planning for the fall.
Then when I decided to take some photos of the Hudson he asked a lovely couple to video me and then proceeded to get down on one knee. He then sat patiently with the box open as I walked back up nonchalantly taking in my surroundings, completely oblivious to what was in front of me. I plopped right down on the picnic blanket and then I looked up. "Oh My God." It seemed to be all I could utter when, for once in my life: I was speechless. Like anyone ever had any doubt, I said yes. So here I hope you enjoy a look into our special weekend and my engagement video is posted below!
