My wedding proposal is my very first step

Digg it | Stumble it | Save to Del.ico.us |

To truly give you an perceptiveness of the story of how I asked my wedding proposal, I must tell you a little about her, and us. Here is our story up to the wedding proposal.

My fiancée, Lyndi, is a singularly astounding person. Note that I said "person" and not just "woman." She is the most giving, tender, witty, engaging, outgoing, and thoughtful person I have ever known. She treats me like a king, and not because she is slavish. She and I are locked in some kind of epic "Love War," by which I mean that we are always treating one another with love, respect, and mutual devotion.....almost as though we are trying to "out-love" the other. Hence, the "Love War"

I had seen Lyndi for the first time weeks before we talked. She was so gorgeous (and still is), that I thought there was no way person like her would be single. How could she be? A woman as bright as she ought to have a line of men around the block awaiting for the chance to cross paths with her. One day, despite my concerns, I saw my opportunity....and I took it.

December, 2003: I saw her in the parking lots, getting the windshield fixed after a recent chip to the glass. I noticed her standing at that place, and successfully to say "Nice car". This, of course, thrilled her (Oh, how she loves that car), and we struck up a conversation. She agreed to go out to lunch with me, and I was hooked. The conversation, the intelligence, the sense of humor of this woman completely mesmerized me, and I was hers. Fast-forward and skip to Super Bowl Sunday, 2004. While I'd normally be watching the game,images of her dominated any interest in it. So, I decided to take my young son to a Chuck-E-Cheese for some bite, and I called her to see if she would join us. She agreed, and off we went. It was there, in the play area, that she told me she wanted to be in a committed relationship with me. The Voyager Probe never flew so high (oh dear God)

I have learned over these months just how great she is, and we began to discuss a future together. She is totally vintage, with a groovy art-deco/retro style. So, I decided that any wedding proposal befitting my Lyndi must be as vintage and original as she. We went together to search for and purchase her ring, so she knew it was coming, but not exactly when.

I spoke to her boss, and he conspired with me to arrange a "company meeting", which would feature a "special guest speaker". I sent via e-mail several images of her and me to a co-worker of hers - places we've been, things we've done, memories we have made. Brenda, (the co-worker) set it all to music in a PowerPoint display, and the wheels were in motion. Several others were enlisted to help me pull it off, and NO ONE revealed a thing to her. I still find it hard to believe that she did not fknow ahead of time. Friday, November 5, 2004: The meeting starts and her boss introduces the "guest speaker," and in I come. 50 people in the room, and better than half of them knew what was coming, but the look on her face was one of complete shock. I describe it as "happily mortified."

I began to tell the assembled how much Lyndi means to me, and was about to begin the PowerPoint, when I said "someone's missing." I stepped out of the room, and came back in with her mother, who had made a secret trip to Denver, from Santa Fe, at my invitation to be there for the special moment. Her mother sat down, and I began the presentation. During the show and my speech, every woman in the room was crying. Lyndi was smiling from ear to ear, still spinning in a rush of emotion as she knew our lives were about to change, and only for the better. The guys in the room were even a little touched (although one later admitted that there was a general feeling amongst them that I had just blown the curve for the another competitor......oops!)

On my knee, I asked Lyndi if she would give me the unmatched privilege of being her husband. She was able to squeak out a "Yes," and I still stand in astonishment that I get to remain hers forever. Sorry this is so long, but to understand the magnitude of that moment, you must first understand the magnitude of my love for her.

Thank You for reading, what Im try to say is, your wedding proposal should be natural, and in the same time perfect and surprise. A wedding proposal is not just a path or tradition to follow, it's serve also as a celebration of your love to your partner and want to remember it forever, yes the day you both decide to take the relationship to another level.
