As some of you may know, Snb’s single life will be coming to an end very soon. On July , 2014, I will be tying the knot with a very beautiful woman who I love very much.
I am lucky for a number of reasons, the best being the fact that she is doing most of the wedding planning on her own. My role is (my words, not hers) simply showing up on time. I can live with that. We already have our ceremony music chosen, the church and bar booked, and our bridal parties asked and accepted. Being a wedding DJ, I am simply putting a playlist together and letting the music play. Think after over 25 years of entertaining couples on their special night, I can manage to play my own wedding without too much grief.
Tonight she asked me to write a short paragraph describing my ‘Unique’ method of proposing. I remember it quite well.
While driving home from a nearby city where we were shopping, I noticed that my lady was enjoying her favorite candy. Those little ‘love hearts’ with the romantic writing on the side. I also noticed that she had just ate two particular candy with the words ‘will you’ and ‘marry me’ written on them. I kept that thought at the back of my mind.
A few years later, on December 21, 2007 to be exact, I finally got up the nerve to ask her to marry me. I went out and bought these little love hearts candy. I had to buy over ten packs to find the words I needed. In one box I put all the extra candy, and in the other box, I put just two candy. ‘Will you’ and ‘marry me’. another box contained the engagement ring.
My lady had planned on spending Christmas with her family in a nearby town, so I had to think fast. I mentioned that I had a surprise for her. I brought out all three boxes.
She opened the first box and commented on how she loved these little candies. Then she opened the second box (at first I thought that she was going to eat the candy and ruin my plan); but then she stopped and read the writing on the candy. She never said anything, but went to the next box, which contained her ring. She was speechless!
I think it was a year or two later that she finally said yes. I think I caught her off guard with the candy!
She still loves these little candies, and you know what? So do I!
