This is a video of my engagement to my fiance (now husband). So it went down kinda like this...

Ashley (my husband/then fiance) told me--with the help of some friends--that he wanted to take me out to a new tapas restaurant in town--A Proposta. On July 1, 2010, Ashley was hoping that he would finally be engaged! He was thwarted, though, by a bad case of laryngitis that I succumbed to earlier that week. So...fast forward to July 8th...

Ashley tells me that we are going to eat dinner with our friends, Drew and Tess, at A Proposta. As we headed out that way, Tess calls Ashley and tells him that they are running behind, and that we should burn some time. Despite the fact that we weren't yet engaged, I knew it was coming and had been diligently looking for ceremony/reception sites. Ashley explains that we now have to burn about 30 minutes or so, and asks if I'd like to go check out the Bleak House as a potential site (the Bleak House, by the way, is a beautiful antebellum mansion built on the banks of the Tennessee River). I excitedly agreed--anytime I could coerce Ashley into doing wedding stuff with me was exciting!

So we arrive at the Bleak House and begin to walk down the stairs to the actual proposal spot (I didn't know yet that the proposal was about to happen), and I notice Drew standing on the side with a video camera (thus the video you are about to or have already watched). Ashley walked me down to a little area within the grotto, got down on one knee, read a beautiful proposal to me, and I said yes!!! :) Afterwards, we shared a piece of tiramisu (our favorite) and then danced to what would later become our first dance at our wedding.

Anyway, ENJOY! :)
