Starbucks Proposal

Monday, August 27, 2012

I love my cup of joe and I truly miss my everyday cup of Starbucks...especially the frappuccinos or the white chocolate mocha! Oh I miss them so! 

Starbucks is an experience to me and apparently to some couples as well. I've heard of tons of weddings hiring a Starbucks stall for their cocktails. (It's making me drooool! boo!) It's a cute idea, right? Especially if you're guests are coffee lovers too. I bet you will be blown away with Mikaela and Shane's proposal for today's post!

Their first date was at Starbucks and Shane decided to bring their first date into the woods. Tricking Mikaela (a photographer) into thinking that they're going on a photo trip and he surprised here with this...

The moment I was allowed to open my eyes is a moment that will be burned into my memory forever. It was the most peculiar feeling to see something so unexpected, so creatively carried out, something that took weeks and hours to plan, for me. For this moment. For us. Surreal.

Starbucks in the woods. Our Starbucks, our first date in those two comfy chairs, with our same two drinks – a passion tea lemonade and a green tea lemonade, and that fruit bar Shane had as well. A homemade candle in a Starbucks sample cup flickered, the prettiest bouquet of pink peonies, and music playing in the background. We sat, me in stunned silence and broken sentences. Knowing what would most likely come next, but not daring to think it, at the same time. Derrick ran by in the corner of my eye, leaving behind a video camera, while I caught someone taking photos in the bushes! Another video camera on a table! Crap, why didn’t I wear my contacts tonight, why the glasses? And off they came :) Then Shane pulled out a ring box and said those words and it happened.

‘Ever since our first date I knew you were the one… I fall more and more in love with you each day… Mikaela Ruth, will you marry me?’

He says there was a pause before I said yes! Of course! And then I dropped to the ground to be close to him and to hug him and he slipped the ring on to my finger.”

The details are just impeccable! Every little detail...loooooving all of it!

Hihi Wi-fy :P

After awhile, Shane changed into his barista uniform just in time for their family and friends to celebrate the engagement with them. Cute! I wanted to be a barista even just for a day! :P

It's amazing how Shane pulled this off! Can you imagine how magical it would be to prepare all this? Congratulations to Shane & Mikaela! Can't imagine how creative their wedding would be like!

This makes me want to have my coffee now, have you had yours? :)
