(an engagement picture)

…on april 17th, jay asked me to marry him at the plantation where we would end up getting married. he proposed with a good ole’ flower he had made into a ring. we talked, and cried, and prayed. he brought a tiny radio and we waited until it was dark outside to dance in a field under the stars (i know, i know…) anywho, april 17th is a good day and a day i will never forget… a start of our little journey.

hope you are having a lovely sunday!



seriously, cutest and most thoughtful engagement EVER. you two are so cute, so inspiring.

That sounds like a perffecccttt proposal. Why would anyone want it any other way?!
I hope I get proposed to in a fashion similar to the way you did :)

Beautiful engagement story!! God has truly blessed both of you!

SO sweet. And so inspiring to see a Christian couple that puts the Lord first in their marriage :)

you two are seriously gorgeous together! love that engagement story :)

Beautiful, just beautiful.

Awe! I absolutely love it. My husband & I were engaged on April 24th. It’s such a lovely month. Dancing under the stars is AMAZING too. I haven’t done it in entirely too long.

I love your engagement photo! Sigh, don’t you just love love?

Happy proposalversary!

Awwww, I love that story! Gives a girl hope. : )



Aww. What a cute proposal!! Was that a picture of you two years ago as well?

how beautiful!! :) and so romantic.

Happy engagement anniversary! :)

Aw! You guys are the cutest couple!! What a sweet way to propose, you couldn’t have said no if you tried! Lol:) Love the picture!

Wow, you two are so cute! this photos is gorgeous :) and what a sweet little story. You should put up more of your engagement photos, so lovely!


The story of how he proposed, flower ring and all, is so romantic. You guys got engaged on my baby sister’s birthday. It was wonderful to hear how that part of your journey began.

Hope you had a beautiful weekend.

That is the sweetest story, Arielle… really. Dancing under the stars is incredibly romantic. :) I’m so glad the two of you were brought together and that you continue to be such a godly example of love. The two of you are a blessing in your example. :)

What a wonderful beginning to your life together! Love the picture, gorgeous as always :)

Awwww, if that’s not the sweetest thing ever. Love the tenderness of your proposal. Happy 2 year anny! :)

beautiful…i love remembering these special times. You guys look stunning.

Such a gorgeous couple! And such a very romantic story :)

Aw, that’s so sweet. Happy april 17th to you!

p.s. Sydney is 17 hours ahead of the west coast of the states (not sure where you are). So we’re always 1 day ahead, which does make blogging kind of funny :)

So happy for you two : ) And how romantic to use a flower ring!

aw. That is too precious. I seriously love your blog. Does your husband ever read the posts that talk about him? I’m sure he knows how much you love him already so reading wouldn’t be necessary. Did you guys do anything special for your proposal-versary? lol made up word I know.
