I've been admiring the planning journals on here since he proposed, and now I think I'm finally ready to start a one of my own! We're shooting for a Disneyland Wedding in January 2011, and I can't wait! To get things started, here's our engagement story: In January, we went on a family trip to Japan. One of our first stops was Tokyo Disneyland! As trip planner / tour director, I had spent several months getting everything ready to make sure that everyone would enjoy themselves on the trip. Little did I know that Will had been planning to propose to me while we were in Japan! He had been waiting until he could ask my father's permission in person, and seeing as we'd all be together on the trip, he realized that it would be the perfect time. We had joked about him proposing, but as I thought it wouldn't happen for at least another year or so, I was completely unaware that he had been planning anything at all. Our first day at Tokyo Disneyland was really romantic- the trip was going smoothly and we were having a great time. I was so happy that I was finally getting to show Will all these neat things in Japan! Will took advantage of my distraction of being "tour guide" to take my father aside and ask him for my hand. Luckily, my dad said yes! Will's mother and sister were along on the trip as well, and they were already in on the plan. The second day there, we went to Disney Sea. It was late in the afternoon, just before sunset when we rode Aquatopia. Will and I got on first, so we had to wait for everyone else to finish before we could move onto the next ride. The park was really quiet that day, so we waited off to the side where no one else was. As we waited, Will had his sister take a picture of us kissing in the sunset. She was about to put down the camera, since everyone else was off the ride, when Will asked her to take another picture. Just then, he reached into his pocket and said "I have a present for you". When I realized what was happening, I burst into tears of disbelief! I couldn't believe that he was really proposing. He kissed me, and put the ring on my finger and I just kept crying. When I finally managed to let go of him to tell my mom (who wasn't in on the surprise), everyone was so excited! It was really perfect to get to have both of our families there when we got engaged, and it was so romantic for him to propose there! Afterwards, I was still pretty worked up, so we rode Journey to the Center of the Earth to calm down, and then had dinner at the Miracosta to celebrate! The rest of our trip was amazing, but that moment definitely made the top of the list Here's a picture of me saying "yes": http://gallery.me.com/skuldi/100311/IMG_2600/web.jpg?ver=12380279290001 I can't wait to start posting more about the wedding!
