The Proposal {Vlog}

Posted on May 31, 2011 at: 7:00 am  -  Comments

I was too busy to edit these photos to the video, so I decided to post them on the blog instead. The first is of our proposal spot and the second is us the day after our engagement in front of the BEAUTIFUL Biltmore Estate.

Linking up again with Jessica from My Time As Mom, Elena from Mommy is in Timeout, and Kate from Mommy Monologues for Vlog Talk!

    Every time I go to the Type-A conference, I hope to get to the Biltmore, but it never works out! I want to see those Christmas decorations!

    I don’t like being in the spotlight either. So funny that he did what you just said you wouldn’t like. lol

    What a wonderful proposal!

    Awww… that’s such a sweet and memorable proposal! That picture of you guys in front of the Biltmore Estate is so precious. It’ve always thought it was so stunning. I’ve gotta visit there one day.

    PS: How perfect is it that it started to snow?! That’s like straight out of a romantic movie.

    That is a great story. I would have been so embarrassed to if my husband proposed to me in front of a bunch of people. The pictures are gorgeous.

    I have seen photos of the Biltmore many a time while watching hours and hours of HGTV, though I’ve never been.

    I hope I get to see it at Type A!

    I was the exact same way about the proposal, I did not want it to be in front of people!

    I love the Biltmore & must get there at Christmas someday! I hear it’s gorgeous then!

    Such a neat story! I love proposal stories! How cool that he used to be a speech writer?!

    You guys are such a cute couple! I can’t think of a better way to spend the date after your engagement than at the Biltmore! I’ve been wanting to go there for years…maybe this year!

    I just LOVE it that he really surprised you. A proposal is such a special moment and it seems like he really nailed it!!

    We went to visit the Biltmore Estates a few years ago and it was truly magnificent! So glad we didn’t skip out on it (it was between a tour there or going shopping in Asheville.
