Get Ready with Me…My Engagement?!?!

You heard right! Over the weekend, I wanted to take advantage of the sunny weather by photographing a get ready with me for a date night…except the date night turned into a proposal! My boyfriend of over four years asked me to marry him and I said yes! I’m so happy to share this news with all of you, my blogging friends. Picture 27 I’d love to share the details of the wedding with you as they come. We haven’t set a date yet. I don’t want to plan it in less than a year, so I was hoping for March of next year, but my boyfriend fiance (!) is in the accounting field so he doesn’t want to do anything before tax season is over. For now, let me share my makeup with you. I didn’t photograph my full outfit you know, in the excitement of getting engaged, but I’ll leave you with my makeup look. I was going for a more natural look so I did BB cream with a bit of bronzer, subtle brown eyeshadow (shimmery on the lid, matte in the crease), brown eyeliner on my top lash line, mascara and a bit of a very natural pink gloss. Engagement Makeup Hope you enjoyed. Are you engaged or married? Let me know how wedding planning went in the comments below!

  4. Wow, congrats, V! That’s very dear announcement! I hope you have a great year of planning, little to no stress involved. In other words, have the best of your (last single) days! πŸ˜‰
    I’m going to cautiously say I got something nearly like engaged over NYE. Me and my man don’t really believe in marriage so imagine my surprise when he boasted a ring and said he hoped for us to spend the rest of our lives together. πŸ™‚ It wasn’t a proposal ring, really, so let’s call it our very own commitment ring. For me, it’s a great deal to hand me a ring that is the symbol of our commitment to each other, and I cherish it very much. Here it is:
    But we’ve talked on the subject of marriage and agreed that if we’re ever going to do a wedding, it’s going to be a very small, tasteful and intimate one, only family and closest friends, 30 people tops. I don’t get my hopes high but if we ever do it, I would arrange for it to happen on the beach or in a mountain meadow. I’m in love with nature.
    I’d be very happy to read about your plans, it always gives me a good vibe seeing people preparing for the happiest day of their lives.

    xo, Sylvia

    • Congrats to you too! That sounds lovely, Sylvia. We also want to do something pretty small–probably around 50 people, which I know doesn’t sound very small compared to your 30. I think it’s nice just to have a day all about the two of you and skip out on inviting the second cousins and friends you haven’t talked to in 5 years. Cheers!

  5. Thank you for the visit! Wow, your makeup looks amazing~! Ironically, despite my night job and the free-lancing I do in the industry, I still can’t do makeup to save my life so I admire everyone who can do theirs πŸ™‚

  6. Congrats love!! I am so happy for you. I nominated you for another award, I hope you’re not too busy to give this one a go. πŸ˜›
