Our Engagement






In a week we celebrate our 2nd marriage anniversary (WOW!) so I wanted to share my engagement story with you guys (short version) before the wedding details. We had been together for 10 years during our engagement. I met my husband when I was in my late late teen. At that time, we were busy focusing on our college and then career. After that, we had to take time to convince our family. And if you've heard the saying that in most Asian countries (families) you not only marry a guy, you marry a whole family. Yep!! it's true! Nothing wrong with that. So really, time went by so fast that 10 years didn't seem too long. We definitely talked about getting married and I always knew he was the one. 

The day of our engagement (Jan 31, 2016) was very beautiful and it definitely was a huge surprise for me. He took me to this beautiful winery (Paradise Ridge Winery) in Sonoma near Napa, CA. He had managed to invite our close families there as well. My parents were there with me and they were surprised too. He had asked my dad but my dad didn't know that was the day. When we walked into that "LOVE" sign I kinda felt something (meaning a HINT) but wasn't really sure (I mean we could be there just for a picture). I was definitely nervous and when he got down one knee, I was speechless. He even hired a photographer, she has hiding somewhere but when he got down on one knee she appeared in front of us. It was so magical and just what I had dreamed of. The day was even more beautiful after that and I will always cherish these moments with our family. 

Outfit details: This dress is by Eliza J. I love their creation, they are my go to for any event. Unfortunately the one I am wearing is old but I have linked similar dresses here and here. The one thing that I love most about their dress is that they come in petite sizes. I wear size 2P on their dresses.
