“Confessions of a Future Bride” | Post 2

It’s time for another installment of our new series entitled, “Confessions of a Future Bride!” If you’re new to my blog, this series is for the future brides out there. My assistant, second shooter, & sister in law, Rachel, is engaged to be married and we thought it would be cool to document every step of the planning process. This will be a place where future brides can get some ideas from Rachel as well as Rachel getting some tips or suggestions from you ladies out there!

If you missed the first post click here. You’ll want to read how Rachel and her fiance’, Arthur met!

Today’s post is a special one! Everyone has their “how he proposed” story. Here’s hers:


For time’s sake, let’s fast forward a bit… Like eight years and ten months…

Arthur and I planned a cruise to Bermuda with two of our good friends! Neither of us had ever been on a cruise before, so we were super excited.

So with being together for almost nine years, I was HOPING for a proposal in Bermuda.. What girl wouldn’t, right? Okay, so not that I was snooping or anything… But… I was going through Arthur’s backpack for my book and such while we were on the beach and he didn’t seem to mind. So of course I’m thinking he didn’t bring a ring with him… Bummer. He didn’t seem nervous and wasn’t acting off, so I was thrown off his scent.

We were on the cruise ship for three days before arriving to Bermuda. On our first day, we went to Tobacco Bay in St. George; it was incredible. We went snorkeling and saw some amazing fish, we jumped off a cliff into the water and Arthur got pretty sunburnt…

The second day on the island, we went to Horseshoe Bay. After swimming around in the water for a bit, Arthur and I took a walk through some of the smaller coves. During our exploration, we happened upon a path behind the beaches. Another small path led to a cliff above one of the coves. As we were standing looking over the beach, Arthur got down on one knee and held out the most gorgeous engagement ring {It was exactly what I wanted… Just what I had been hinting at for the past… I don’t know… At least six years}. As much as I was expecting this moment to happen, I was still taken by surprise. I couldn’t remember what his exact words were or my response… It all happened so fast that I forgot if I even said yes or kissed him {Don’t worry, he said I did both}. After waiting all of this time, it was more perfect then I ever could have imagined it would be.
