I have been engaged for a year. We got engaged December 1st, 2012 (we decided on longer engagement so we could have a summer wedding and not have to plan everything in just a few months) but I never posted the proposal story so here it is.
The day started with a trip to the Botanical Gardens, Mitchell Domes and a movie followed by us going out to a nice dinner for our 6 month anniversary at That's Amore restaurant. Once the main meal was over, the waitress brought out a bottle of Asti Spumanti (Champagne) per my (now) fiance's request which was unknown by me since he had requested it while I was away from the table. While enjoying the nice champagne and sharing Tiramisu, he began an elegant toast to us and our relationship. Immediately following the toast he got down on his knee beside the table and asked me to marry him.
I of course said yes! There were people from the other tables watching us so people were congratulating us and a couple people clapped.
