FC: OUR WEDDING | 3.3.12 | ___ | F
1: THE MARRIAGE OF | PAMELA | & | EVAN | 3.3.12
2: Our Engagement: | photo courtesy of Mrs. Heather Lowery of Heart Felt Photography | Evan asked me to marry him on Christmas Eve of 2010. He very sweetly had me close my eyes as we were snuggled in bed together that morning. He then placed something on my chest and said to open my eyes. As I opened my eyes, I saw the small black box. I opened it to find a ring but not just any ring; it was the ring I had like the most when we looked at different ones. I was so surprised. I smiled at Evan and he asked, "Will you marry me?." And of course I said , "Yes!"
3: We looked for many placed over the next few months to have the wedding. We considered a beach wedding but that was pretty costly. We ended up deciding on Charlotte Harbour Even and Conference Center. For us this place would be special. On our first date we went out on Evan's boat. One of the many places he took me that day was up around the the Boca Grande Light House and the Peace River. Charlotte Harbour Event and Conference Center sits right on the Peace River. So we would got to have our special day right by where we spent our first special day together.
