So ecstatic, excited and proud to be announcing my engagement!
You may or may not have noticed a lull following my last post but, as you can imagine, the past week and a half has been a complete whirlwind!
💍❤️Utterly surprised; overwhelmingly happy ✨Andy surprised me yesterday with a magical night spent at the Brewster Inn that included high-end sea food, an adorable gazebo and the most gorgeous ring I've ever seen. And of course I said "yes!" 🥂🍾#weareengaged #fouryearsinthemaking #nighttoremember #emileeandandytietheknot #thejanitzstory
Andy totally surprised me with this one (as is the ultimate goal), treating me to a romantic dinner at the Brewster Inn in Cazenovia, NY. Little did I know that our post-dinner stroll down to the lake would end in him getting down on one knee and breaking out the perfect ring from his suit jacket!
The restaurant staff did an amazing job as well, going the extra mile to make the evening special and (just as importantly) helping to keep me totally oblivious!
It was perfectly romantic and elegant (both the evening and the ring) and was everything I could have ever asked for. I’m a lucky woman!
Needless to say, the last 10 days or so have been full of celebrating with friends and family. We are truly blessed to have those of you in our life that have gone above and beyond to make our engagement a special time in our life and have gone the extra mile to make us feel loved and supported – we can’t wait to have you at our wedding!
Thank you to my dad and Sandy for the celebratory dinner and engagement present! 💍🎊 And another thanks for this adorable wine glass which both reminds me that Andy and I are officially engaged and will come in a lot of handy during the next year! 🎉🍾🥂#happilyengaged #lettheweddingplanningbegin #emileeandandytietheknot #thejanitzstory
Aside from celebrating though, there’s also been a lot of work getting done vis a vis WEDDING PLANNING! And may I just say, I never had any idea just how much planning went into a wedding? I’m tired already! But in the best of ways.
Stay tuned for more wedding-inspired writings, artwork and DIY. This occasion has helped me realize now more than ever just how inspirational love can be!
