How He Asked

So yes, we got engaged quite a while ago (more than six months ago to be exact!) But Nicholas and I recently just got featured on HowHeAsked! Take a peek below and of course, read the other stories guaranteed to make you cry happy tears.

platinum proposal #1: nicholas and risa

I love sleeping in on the weekends and Nicholas knows this. On a Friday, he tells me that he has some errands to run the next morning and since it was supposed to be so cold out, that I should just sleep in. So that’s what I did. I figured he’d come home for lunch, however, so I got up and started getting ready. As I was doing so, I hear a knock at the door. I’m still in not-appropriate-for-answering-the-door attire and because I had been hearing rustling in the hallways all morning, I thought it was going to be one of our building’s maintenance people. I was freaking out trying to throw on something that I could open the door in, which ended up being sweats, and when I opened the door, I saw Nicholas with a dozen white roses. He also had two champagne flutes and a bottle of champagne. I was completely oblivious to anything else, and immediately grabbed the roses to put them in a vase. As I was running around the apartment looking for said vase, Nicholas grabbed my hands and said, “Put the flowers down, Babe.” Everything after that is a blur. I don’t know what he said to me, I don’t remember what I said, but all I remember is him getting down on one knee in our kitchen and holding a Harry Winston box with a platinum ring inside. Of course I said yes. I later came to find out he’d had a handful of other plans (and even used HowHeAsked to find ideas) but that every single one of them in one way or another had been foiled. I always pictured having an extravagant proposal with a photographer and everything, but I wouldn’t have changed a thing about how he asked because it’s so very “us” and it was in the apartment that we share together.
