He Proposed and I said YES!


I was so surprised. I was sure he was not going to ask me that night, at least that was what I told my friend Michelle on the phone that day. Here's what went down....

He took me downtown to Millennium Park to go ice skating. After waiting in line and sipping up yummy hot chocolate, we finally got our skates, held hands and like rookies we took off. After about 20 minuets of skating, Greg made me go into the center of the ice skating rink. He then got down on one knee. A man in the crowd yelled out, "HE"S GONNA PROPOSE!!" Everyone stopped. Everyone Cheered. Greg said some sweet words to me and pulled out the ring and asked, "Will you marry me?"

I said, "YES!!!!!"  And the crowed roared! It was perfect, it was classy, it was romantic and I LOVED it!

So, I can now officially say WE ARE ENGAGED!!! We are so excited to start this journey together and we want to thank each of you for your love and support!!! I can't wait to be Mrs. Joanna Meyer!!!!

Joanna, thanks a lot for your blog I love following your photography adventures especially all the way here in Tennessee! Your engagement story made me tear up-so happy for you even though we have never met in person. May I ask, where did your finance get your amazing ring? I have a sister looking to get engaged soon and it looks so much like her...
