You totally win Best Space Mountain Picture EVER. That is AWESOME You are just radiating the happy - a nice burst of sunshine on a grey, cloudy Monday for me today
Now I'm dying to know, where in Epcot did you get engaged?Love the updates!!!!! We got engaged in Epcot in 2003 and I was not a Disney expert then, and have NO pics!!!
Haha, I'm sure you and my ring would make a lovely couple!Your ring is absolutely stunning I love your ring so much I want to propose to your ring! I think we could be very happy together
You guys got some excellent pics on Pirates. Some of the best I've ever seen from that ride!
Thanks for joining in! That's so funny about your daughter, I think Franklin got the idea for the proposal years ago when I was going on and on about a proposal I read about in a TR. So the cycle continues!Just joining in little late, but here I am. First off let me say CONGRATULATIONS on your engagement!!! I shared your engagement story with my DD. her reply was, "thats exactly how I want my proposal to be." LOL, hope her boyfriend starts planning now. The pictures that Franklin took are beautiful. You TR is great! I feel like we went with you.
We were happy and glowing, and we still are 10 months later!I love all of the ring pics. You just look so happy and glowing!!!
I definitely wanted to capture as many photos of that day as possible. And I think we pretty well accomplished that goal. We were riding on a cloud that day, weren't we?I love that you're showing off the bling in every picture! So cute! I definitely would too.
That's so fun that you got to meet up with some friends! Looks like you all had a great time, especially you and Franklin riding your cloud!!

I was really glad my nails looked cute on this particular trip. It added the perfect Disney touch to all those photos of my hand that day!Every time I see a ring picture I think of how nice your manicure looks and how cute the red with white polka dots look in a WDW setting. I bet you are really glad you got your nails done before your trip.
Thank you so, so much! We'll be in Disney October 20-25, PM me so we can coordinate schedules and see if there's any meet-up opportunities!Oh. My. Goodness!!! Most perfect proposal EVER!! And, by far, the best souvenir possible! Where do I get myself one of those?
So, so, so happy for you both! I told myself that I was going to have just 10 min of quick DIS'ing then go do errands and now I am all teary. But in a good way. CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Super impressed with all the details of the proposal - the personalized slipper, photographer at the ready, done in your castle. Just
Am at the thoughts that must have been running through Franklin's head between the proposal itself and all the photography details (F stop, ISO, shutter speed, flash or no flash... I have no idea what I'm talking about... can you tell?)
Anyway, just a beautiful story! If your wedding is in 77 days then we may cross paths in WDW as my trip is in 74 days. In other words, if some crazy lady approaches you saying "congratulations," please don't be alarmed.
We're all super nerds about Disney so we totally know what the Boyz II Men super fan feels like. Lots more fun coming up. And a real life update, the wedding invitations go out on Friday! It's getting so close now!to the Boyz II Men super fan. Hate to say it, but if I were that guy's girl I might have sat a few rows behind him. But seriously, we're all super nerds about something so good for him. I hope he was able to get an autograph. And that she didn't break up with him....
Lastly, as always, just amazing, incredible, spectacular, professional quality pictures. If Disney hasn't already selected you, Franklin, as one of the photographers they highlight on whatever feed it is, they surely should. I am going to have to research it and suggest you because your pictures are out of this world!
Thank you for sharing your story with us. Can't wait for more engagement fun!
Franklin gave you all the yummy details on the proposal. But I wanted to chime in and say Jean and Lee had a boy! Nico is just adorable and we can't wait to meet him for the first time when Jean and Lee come to town for our wedding!Where did Franklin find the glass slipper to personalize? Through Disney or somewhere else? I loved his proposal!
So did Jean and Lee have a boy or girl? I love baby news also!
I'm so glad your 'Ohana meal was better this time! We've found that there is usually one meat that isn't as good as the other two (but funny enough it rotates among the three).Caught up here now as well. Loved the update. All the photos were awesome. You can just see the excitement and wonder in your eyes from the surprise of the morning.
Pirates was down while we were there but hopefully will be up and running on my return trip. But I really miss Davey Jones being in the mist. Blackbeard doesn't do it justice IMHO.
Our dinner at Ohana this time was better than the fall, but I was still disappointed with the steak. Everything else was wonderful!
Yay for new trips! When in May are you going? I'm scheduled to be there May 19-26. We've got a BWV/BLT split for right now, but I'm hoping to switch the whole thing to BWV at seven months.I love all the celebratory ring and love photos! And CHH looks delish, we'll have to try that on our next visit.... which just so happens that we booked earlier today! We booked ten days in May at AKV, split into two stays. Our plan is to cancel one half and book at BWV or BCV for one half. We're hoping for a boardwalk view to be available at our seven month window in Oct. I'm super excited! This will be our first trip back since 2010! Until then, I'll continue to live vicariously through your TRs and your Fairytale Wedding!
Thanks! We loved how that photo turned out.You totally win Best Space Mountain Picture EVER. That is AWESOME You are just radiating the happy - a nice burst of sunshine on a grey, cloudy Monday for me today
Thanks Kristy, I think the SM photos is one of my favorites too!Love all of the ring pictures, but the Space Mountain is by far the BEST one! How cute!!!!
Great updates. I'm sure you were just on cloud 9 the rest of the day!
What a wonderful way to spend your 15th anniversary! Early congrats to you.I LOVE hearing the behind the scenes stuff. Awesome story! Thanks for sharing your secret of how it all came together. What an amazing moment & memory & it's just the beginning! We are celebrating our 15 year anniversary at Disney this year & I've been trying to get creative with a special gift for my DH. You've inspired me!!!
Thank you so much!What a perfect manicure for a Disney proposal! Love the Minnie polka dots. Congrats Missy and Franklin.
Thanks Patricia! This was quite the action-packed TR, that must be why I'm still writing it 10 months later.Wow... just catching up and to think I was all excited about your EMH evening at MK, and your F&W Beer/Food Lunch pairings in Italy (which did look awesome btw and I'm not a huge beer drinker) and your great costumes for the Halloween Party...
but nothing could have prepared me for the complete Awesomeness of your Breakfast at Cindy's Castle and that incredibly lovely and well thought proposal of Franklins...
Wow just wow... that was completely awesome...
Thank you, I'm so glad you're enjoying the TRs (I love writing them!). And I am one very lucky girl to have such a wonderful guy.LOVE reading your trip reports! You two are adorable. And the PICTURES... ohhhh the picturessssss... LOVE!!!
Speaking of love... you have a great guy there to give you such a special proposal in such a magical place!!! Congrats!!
This sentence was SO spot on! You know we just can't get enough of Franklin's fireworks photos!! But they are made more wonderful by your commentary.
I’m not even going to bother with any preamble, because we all know you’re here for the fireworks pictures. So away we go!
