Andrew and Belinda's First Date Reenactment Marriage Proposal

Andrew and Belinda's First Date Recreation Marriage Proposal (2)

How we met:  There was no magical boy meets girl situation – we met online.  Belinda’s portfolio   was inactive for a few months because she had some interesting experiences and   had to take a break. During that time, Andrew joined the site. When her profile was  active again, it popped up on Andrew’s radar. Andrew sent a message to Belinda and   that was the beginning.

Andrew was a Starbucks fan but Belinda was traumatized by previous first date   experiences at coffee shops so she suggested gelato instead (in the middle of   winter). It was a classic first date. We had gelato in the mid-afternoon and decided  to go for an early supper because Andrew didn’t want to say goodbye.  It was still   early in the evening when we finished supper so we decided to get frozen yogurt.   Belinda said that she had to meet up with some friends that night but Andrew   thought that she just wanted to ditch him (which was not the case) and they bid   farewell.

How He Asked:  Seven months later, we were celebrating our anniversary on a Monday and Andrew   planned a night that re-enacted our first date.  Meanwhile, his house was being set   up by his sister and her fiancé for the perfect proposal atmosphere with candles,   rose petals, wine, and desserts.

At the end of the date, we headed home and   Andrew ran into the house to check on things and told Belinda to wait downstairs   and keep her eyes closed no matter what. He then led her to the middle of his living   room, weaving through a path of rose petals to the middle of a circle of roses.  But   she had stepped on a rose petal as she was walking and started to figure out what   was going on. Once in the circle, he told her to open her eyes, confessed his love,   got down on one knee and asked the big question…”Will you marry me?”
