As of today, it’s been two years since the love of my life got down on one knee in the sand, gave me a ring, and asked me to be his wife.

And I said yes.

It was an evening of a magical beach sunset, a sonnet in a glass bottle, a cozy bonfire, and family togetherness. That evening was the beginning of the eight months of our engagement and of preparing for our wedding, but it was the start of something more than that too; a lifetime of companionship, adventures, and growing together in Christlikeness as we strive to honor Him with our marriage and be a living reflection of Christ and the Church.

God has truly blessed us with a relationship of light, laughter, and love and it’s my earnest and heartfelt prayer that all of our coming years together are characterized by the same.

 “I love you with so much of my heart that none is left to protest.”
-Shakespeare; Much Ado About Nothing (Act IV, Scene 1)

  • Ah, I LOVE this so much!! I got engaged two years ago last week, so it sounds like we are pretty similar in that regard!

    Your ring is stunning, the locale was breathtaking, and you can see the happiness radiating from both of your faces. So sweet! What a special memory.

    Also, I am a big fan of Much Ado About Nothing. 🙂

    • Hello Bethany! I know! Isn’t Much Ado the best? My husband and I love it. 🙂 Congratulations on just passing two years since you got engaged – it’s such an amazing journey! Thanks for stopping by. 🙂

  • This is such a lovely post. Congrats on the engagement! That’s so exciting, I’ve only been with my boyfriend for 1 year so I don’t expect a proposal anytime soon LOL

    • Thank you! I’m so glad you enjoyed the post!

  • Beauty in Christ

    WOW. What a testimony to God’s grace. Every time I see how my parents are more and more in love with each other, I realize that each year they have been together is the grace and love and mercy of God. And the analogy of marriage being the picture of Christ and His church is just so precious.

    • Amen! God’s grace astounds me every day and especially when I look back on these photos. It’s my prayer that we also reflect the Gospel of Christ and His Church! Thank you for your sweet comment!

  • Aw I love it! Those pictures are so romantic!I love seeing engagement stories!

  • Oh my word, how sweet and romantic!!! I love that this is a random day of love for both of us – Happy engagement anniversary to you too! This post is seriously so beautiful and the photos to DIE for. OMG! And I just saw your Much Ado quote! Are we twins or something?!?! That is insane! I swear I didn’t even see your post until now – HAHA I always joke that Tom and I are Beatrice and Benedick because we are so sassy to each other and like to play hard to get and be all coy and bratty. I guess what I’m trying to say, is, I love your quote and everything about this darling post <3

    • I know! I read your post about your proposal and it seriously seems like we must be twins. Like seriously. And Much Ado About Nothing is the absolute best. 😉

  • That’s such a serene setting! Beautiful!
