Young Love Sparked, and Renewed

Young Love Sparked, and Renewed

I’m craving for summer to arrive, so today I’m sharing Ben and Maria’s summertime engagement. This couple totally reminds me of Harry and Sally (from When Harry Met Sally). Their love first sparked in college, and after dating others, years later they reconnected and found love with one another again. Ben wanted to pop the question on their anniversary, which happen to be the glorious 4th of July. We used the word “sparked” as an inspiration for his proposal. It shared double meaning as their love sparked on 4th of July, which of course is a day literally full of fireworks and sparklers.

Ben left a note on his door “Come inside” for Maria.  Inside, on the entry table was a small basket waiting with a framed picture of Ben and Maria from college, 4th of July sparklers, and a note that explained how their love “sparked” in college.

In search of Ben, she stumbled upon a rose petal and candle lit path that led her to his backyard. There he was waiting in the middle of amazing decor, that he and his daughter put together. Bouquets of flowers and candles scattered everywhere; as if on cue, sparklers went off all around the backyard, as he yelled “happy anniversary!” when she walked outside. There was a table set for two with a personalized champagne bottle, flutes, her favorite cupcakes adorned with sparkler candles. You know the one’s that are impossible to blow out?

He invited her to sit down, poured her a glass of wine and left the bottle in front of her to read “Maria, I love you. Will you marry me? ~Ben. I think you all know the rest…a happily ever after!
