Eve & Don February 7th
From the bride: THE PROPOSAL We met in Afghanistan, of all places, in 2012 while we were both deployed (Army) to Camp Phoenix Kabul. We stayed in touch and started dating a couple of years later. The proposal was a dream! We were in Ireland hiking in Wicklow Mountain National Park. Don asked me to join him on a cliff edge to enjoy the view. He shared some beautiful feelings with me, including “loving me even more than burritos” (he is a super fan of Mexican food) and before I knew it he was on one knee with a beautiful ring asking me to marry him. I was honestly so surprised that he did not get an answer for what he says was “an eternity.” THE CEREMONY We held our ceremony in the Timber House at Devil’s Thumb Ranch, a glass building with 360 degree views of the snow covered mountains. My favorite memory was Don’s vows; Don is stoic and generally a man of few words. His vows were incredibly personal and sincere and touched my heart in a way that I was not expecting. There was not a dry eye in the room, including mine.
Looking back, I wish we would of recorded the ceremony. It was even more special than I ever imagined and it breaks my heart that we do not have it recorded.
