Wedding Wednesday – Exciting News in My World

Hey ya’ll!  I’m back!  And funny I should return to you on Wedding Wednesday because….. I got engaged this weekend!  Well, technically I got engaged on Thursday (Thanksgiving… how sweet is that!), but still… it was a holiday so that counts as the weekend for me!

This is the spot he did it! This picture was taken just a few minutes prior to the big question!

Because it’s sweet and sappy (and I have your undivided attention and can say anything I want in my blog) here’s how he did it!  We were on the Celebrity Millennium with my family to celebrate my grandpa’s birthday.  On the first day there was a VIP sail-away party on the heli-pad.  In the middle of the party and in front of the entire party, Danny pulled me to the center of the heli-pad and got down on his knees (yup… knees!  The ship was so rocky that he had to be on two knees so as not to fall over.  I like to think he knew he can’t live without me so he was begging of course!  hehehe) and asked me to be his wife.  Or at least I think that’s what he said.  Because it’s all kind of a blur to me.  All I specifically remember from that moment was thinking… “I have a tooth pick in my mouth!  He can’t propose to me with a toothpick in my mouth!”  And somewhere in there I said yes and we kissed and it was magical.

I was just a little embarrassed!!!! But look how cute he is!

As a Destination Wedding Specialist, there was really only one thing for me to do!  So Danny and I are doing a destination wedding!  And for the first time in my life, I can truly appreciate how difficult planning a wedding can be.  We’ve only been at it for a couple of days, and already I’m hitting walls and having trouble making decisions.  Unlike a lot of my friends and a lot of brides I have met, I never really envisioned MY wedding.  I didn’t know where, when, what flowers… you know, all the important details.  So I’m starting from scratch.  Luckily we narrowed it down to two locations, Jamaica and Mexico.  We spent a couple of hours going back and forth about both places.  And THEN Dan added Curacao and St. Thomas to the mix.  Sheesh!

Wedding Wednesday has been a place to come for information on doing Destination Weddings and planning Honeymoons.  This will still be the case, but it will also be a place to follow my exciting journey through planning my OWN Destination Wedding (I expect there to be many laughs along the way… probably some tears and screaming also).


  1. Hello Stacy. Hope you are fine; I am really very glad when I see brides appreciate, as you do, how difficult and sometimes how frustrate is to plan a wedding. Myself, and I believe the most wedding planners, know that very well!!!!!! Wish you the best!
