We are getting married!!!!!

On my 36th birthday 11-11-11 Mr. Fentiman got down on one knee at the Intercontinental hotel and asked me if I would  marry him. Even though he couldn't hear me through the sobbing tears I said yes. On October 13, 2012 I will become Sarah Marie Fentiman and I am SO ready for that day.

We usually have a get away on our birthdays.. Mine November11th and his November 12th. So when I walked into the hotel room I thought nothing of the rose petals, candles, wine and chocolate dipped strawberries because he always does a phenomenal job of making our time romantic and perfect. So I walked up to the table to look at everything and then he grabbed my left hand... I turned around and  at that point he got down on one knee! I immediately started sobbing. What a great guy. All of the pictures were taken with my cell phone, so I'm sorry for the quality but I wanted to share our moment with you.

He had the rose petals painted the colors I want for our wedding.. Well at least he asked for those colors. :) He also matched the candles and the sugar on the strawberries. Didn't I tell you that he was good????

He proposed using the ring box that my mom's wedding set came in with a loaned ring. The next day we went to pick mine out... I got to wear my diamond with a loaned band until my band was ready. I got my official ring this past Thursday and I can't stop staring at it. It is SO beautiful.

Ignore the old hand and look at the Emerald cut diamond.. much prettier eh?

The assistant manager  at Tivol , Wendy Sight sent me this picture once it was done. She went above and beyond for us and we couldn't have asked for more! Thank you Wendy!!!
