Our proposal story.My entire engagement story is in the YouTube video below ... but here's a brief background of how we got there!
Surprise, surprise!On June 4th, the day after my birthday - my boyfriend had planned a surprise that he hoped "I'd like, but it really wasn't a big deal". Movies are a big deal in our house, and I was overjoyed when I found out we were going to be taking our 3-year-old son to his first movie: a pre-screening of Cars 2.
A Filthy Liar.We packed our son and his big sister into the truck, and took off for Mann's Theater in Plymouth, Minnesota. I had zero reason to pay attention to anything around me - like familiar cars in the parking lot. When we walked into the building, it was really quiet, but I was told that the pre-screening was before business hours. Sounds great. The four of us walked into the theater, and I noticed a familiar song playing through the speakers, but had no reason to think it had anything to do with me. "Cool," I thought, "I wonder which preview is playing, that has our favorite song in the soundtrack." Mike looked at me and said, "And by the way, I'm a filthy liar." At this exact moment, our 3-year-old fell to the ground, unsure of his surroundings. I was so focused on making sure he was quiet, to prevent him from ruining the movie theater experience for others in the audience, that I didn't notice my best friends from high school and my sister ducking down in the row directly behind where we were sitting!
The silver screen lit up and...The YouTube video shows you exactly what happened after that. This is what I saw: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0YyaScZB3Ew
Everything I never knew I wanted.Amazing! Everything I never knew I ever wanted! We went out for appetizers and drinks with some of our family and friends who had been in the "audience". While we out, Mike looked over at me and said, "Oh, and by the way, our wedding website is live... as of this morning." He had put the video up on a website he had created before we left (a version without my reaction, of course!). You can read more ramblings from our amazing day on the wonderful blog he created for me to document our journey: JamieAndMikeWedding.com Thanks for reading! I hope you enjoy watching our perfect day, as much as I enjoyed living it!
