engage-cation!

in case you didn't get a call. or a text. or see it on facebook. OR on twitter.

and because I wouldn't want to miss out on telling ANYONE...

on Monday night, Matt and I got engaged!!!!

so, there is more to the story, but I am in a hurry to do vacation stuff, so you only get a teaser of a story...and pretty much straight from facebook :)

we went out to dinner at S&P Oyster, then headed to a bar that had been recommended by our server. On the way we crossed a bridge over the Mystic River. We had a beer, we left that bar and went to head to another bar. On the way, we walked over the same bridge, and Matt said "let's take a picture on the bridge--use the timer on the camera!"

(side note: this would be canon sd78O that I bought on the road 'cause UPS didn't deliver!)



so...this is how matt proposed. note the diamond ring in the picture--he wanted to make sure to include my photography! I didn't know it was in the picture--but when I checked how it turned out and asked what was in his hand, I turned around and he was on one knee :) And he said "Carrie, will you marry me." No muss, no fuss, just the real deal. :)



this pic was taken immediately after! we had some girls outside of a bar take it. they were SO EXCITED that we'd gotten engaged in Mystic, Connecticut, and we weren't even from there!


and here are the girls who took our picture...they came over to give us...



two celebratory Irish Car Bombs. Ha! so cute! it was the bar our server had recommended at dinner, and we are SO glad we went there. Called John's. Pictures of the place later. There was live music too--violins, fiddles and other strings!



and here's my pretty pretty vintage ring! I must say, it is exceptionally sparkly. like, moreso than I have ever seen--and since I'm a wedding photographer, that is saying a LOT. I promise it is not just sentiment talking!!



and here we are the next day--in the same spot. :) look how pretty the sky was!!

for those who are asking and wondering--no concrete plans yet--but we're talking details and enjoying the fun :) today: to two breweries and vermont!!

love from new hampshire...

Jarrod and I were riding the monorail after a day at Epcot back to our hotel next to the Magic Kingdom on Tuesday. I told him that I was secretly hoping Matt would propose on your eastern vacation. I explained some of the things we'd discussed and we agreed that an eastern vacation would be the perfect way to propose. I received your e-mail like 12 hours later. (totally disconnected from twitter and facebook!) I cried when I saw the pictures and am so thrilled for you both. I thought of you both several times this week and am just so happy!!! Can't wait to hear more.
