A Yes Girl Says “YES!”: The Ring

Alright this is the post I know you’ve been all waiting for, but it only seemed appropriate to save it for our normal “FRIDAY ROCKS” post! We are finally showing off the stunning ring that Aaron gave me last weekend! My left hand has never felt so heavy ;) We went about a year ago to try on rings and just get a taste for what it is that I liked. We never tried on anything that looks like what he ended up picking out – and I actually love that fact, because he can take full ownership of this ring! He did it all! Plus, I never in a million years imagined anything as beautiful as the ring he eventually purchased! It’s so delicate and dainty but still very traditional. I absolutely love love love it!

A Yes Girl Says “YES!”: A Letter to My Dad

Three and a half years ago, my father passed away very suddenly, so when Aaron and I met a year after that it was still pretty fresh. I have always said to Aaron that I’m sad he never was able to meet my dad, and I was especially bummed when it came time to ask permission to marry me. He did the right thing and of course asked for my mom’s permission, but it would have been even better if my dad could have been given that honor as well.

My absolute favorite part of our entire proposal was this beautiful three-foot canvas that Aaron had a calligrapher create. It is the sweetest, most genuine letter from Aaron to my father. Get your tissues out ladies, because I was SOBBING when Aaron read this out loud to me. (It’s a little difficult to make out, so make sure to check back on Tuesday when we release the proposal video – you can hear Aaron read the whole thing out loud.)

A Yes Girl Says “YES”! : The YES Sign

Today I want to share this BEAUTIFUL “She Said YES!” sign with all of you! This piece is one of my favorites from the proposal because it is just so darn pretty! Karley of Karley Hall Creative did such an incredible job. She knows that I have been obsessing over this new font she recently purchased, and she even added some beautiful paper flowers to bring in my favorite colors. Funny thing is, she posted about this sign last week (see the post here) and I commented on how much I love it without even knowing that it was being made for me! Such a pinch me moment :)

A Yes Girl Says “Yes!”: The Favorite Things

When Aaron started planning my proposal with Heather the first thing he told her was “she loves peonies and hydrangeas”. My man knows me well! The sure-fire, quickest way to my heart is a fresh flower arrangement! Heather took that to heart and absolutely dazzled with the fresh flowers for our proposal! I was handed a pink peony bouquet right when I walked into the backyard and the whole set up was covered in pink and white peonies, hydrangeas, ranunculus, and dahlias! There were even a couple of flower balls hanging from trees nearby – and a chandelier made of fresh flowers too! OH SO BEAUTIFUL!

Another thing that is really important to Aaron and I is our faith. We met at a church event and being active members of our church family is something we value very highly! So Aaron framed a beautiful bible verse (that perfectly matched the color scheme of the proposal) from an etsy store and had it on the table with my flower arrangement and the baseball that I shared yesterday!

A Yes Girl Says “YES!”: The First Date

This past weekend I said a resounding “YES” to the man of my dreams and got engaged! I now know the excitement and emotions that go into this crazy time and can relate to our clients on a whole different level! As I sit here anxiously awaiting the photos and video to come in I keep trying to replay the moment in my mind, but I can barely remember a thing! I do know that each detail of our proposal lived up to “The Yes Girls Standards” and was very thoughtful.

So, I’ve decided to share these details with all of our followers and readers! Join me as I relive this proposal moment every day, featuring one of the personalized items each morning on our blog and social media. Then, I invite you all to continue to walk along side me as Aaron and I start to plan our wedding too; I will be creating a new category on our blog. Every Tuesday will feature one of the decisions or questions that I’m stirring while planning a wedding. I would like for this to be a journey that we all take together!

A Yes Girl Gets Engaged

The Baseball reads: You may have said “umm yeah sure” but to me, that was just as good as “hell yes!”

Something you should know is that Aaron and I were friends for about 6 months before we started dating. In fact, we were such good friends that I had completely “friend zoned” him and didn’t even remotely think of him in a romantic way! So, when he called me out of the blue on a Tuesday afternoon and asked me to go on a date with him that Thursday I was in complete shock! COMPLETE SHOCK! I had no idea what to say because all I kept thinking was, “we are just friends, why would he want to go on a date with me!”. These lovely thoughts lead me to a very graceful answer of “umm… yeah… sure.” Smooth, I know. Thankfully Aaron has a good sense of humor and didn’t take that too rough! As our relationship progressed we made a joke out of it and “umm… yeah… sure.” became our tag line to everything. He even went so far as to joke that when he proposed I should answer with it (obviously I shot that one down quickly).

One of the first dates that we went on was to a Texas Rangers baseball game with all our friends. This is where we held hands in front of people for the first time (yes there were butterflies galore) and this is also where we took our first picture together. Because of this special date, and because I am obsessed with the San Francisco Giants, Aaron wrote our tag line (in pink- my favorite color) on a baseball and placed it on a table for our proposal. It was such a thoughtful prop!!!
