Message to the Bride & Groom - Unusual Proposal

Weddings are incredibly wonderful and absolutely amazing things. Stop and think about it for a moment – how many things had to go exactly right in this world just for the two of you to meet? And then how many more things had to go right since that first moment you saw each other to bring the two of you to where you now stand today, ready to take each other as husband and wife?

When your relationship began, it wasn’t exactly easy – you were separated by almost a hundred miles and years driving back and forth between Milwaukee and Madison just to be able to see each other. As you got to know each other you began to see how the both of you just ‘fit’ with the other.

As time went on, you began to forget about what life was like before you met and it just seemed to be a foregone conclusion that you would be together for the rest of your lives. It was just ‘assumed’ as you began talking about the things you would do after you were married without ever really talking about getting married.

John’s family, on the other hand, WAS talking about the two of you getting married. They saw how perfect this odd match was and they knew that it was simply destined to be. In fact, they were the ones that had already chosen 9/10/11 as your date (and did their best to make sure the two of you made that date).

After John finally realized what the rest of his family already knew, he decided it was time to pop the question. He put a lot of thought into it and did a lot of work to make it perfect. For those of you that don’t know, he actually placed Amy’s ring inside a bag, placed the bag inside a gem filled treasure chest, wrapped the chest in cloth and then found the perfect hiding place for it in the hollow of a fallen tree along the riverbank. It had all the makings of a ‘made for TV’ Lifetime movie type moment…but it all hinged on Amy.

He suggested that they take the dog for a walk along the river bank – but she didn’t want to because it was too muddy. He insisted…and she was none to pleased with him for insisting that they walk down the path. As they neared the tree, the dog began sniffing around tree (that was about the only thing that went according to plan). He wondered aloud what the dog was doing and went over to the tree to ‘investigate’.

He then pulled out the cloth-wrapped and dirt-covered treasure chest and Amy promptly yelled at him to put it back. She thought for sure it was a severed head. But despite her protest, he kept going – he slowly brushed the dirt off and began unwrapping the cloth and she continued to yell at him to put it back – she was sure it belonged to someone else and that person would see them messing with his stuff.

He was able to work through Amy’s instance that he simply put it back and leave it alone and managed to find the ring he had so carefully placed there. At this point most women would begin to tear up or give the man a hug or even begin to giggle. Not Amy. Her first response was ‘you GEEK’! But then he asked and she said yes.

Marriage is a lot like that. No matter how much you plan and how much work you do, you can never truly control what happens next and you can never truly control what life sends your way. There will be bumps in the road and wrenches in the gears throughout your lives together. But as long as you’re together, it will all work out in the end.
