How did Bob propose? Bob had been planning to pop the question for a while but wanted it to be somewhere special. New Hampshire is a place that holds many great memories for the two of us. So on the last trip up for the year, it was perfect. Bob had purchased the ring just a week before and it was burning a hole in his pocket. It was a crisp autumn day in October and the sun was shining. Spending several hours exploring the fair, we tasted jams, saw the tractor pull, went on rides, and ate fried pickles. At one point Sarah was trying on a ring and it got stuck on her finger (her ring finger!!). Sarah thought that she could just buy it and get it off when they got home but as we all know now, Bob wasn’t going to let that happen. After getting it off and putting it back, they made their way to the farm animals where they looked at the cows, bunnies, chickens, and sheep. Ending at the baby goat petting zoo. It had been a long day and they decided to wait on some benches nearby until the rest of her family was done. At that point, Bob got down on one knee. Thinking that he had bought a ring at the fair to play a joke on her, Sarah told him that it’s not at all funny. Bob pulled out the ring and began to profess his love, his need, and his adoration for Sarah. She said YES! A few moments later the skies opened up and rain began to fall. They ran for cover at a nearby school and had some time alone to truly take it all in.

Bridesmaids’ Gift and Groomsmen’ Gift: For the groomsmen, we gifted them James Oxford’s from the Frye Company and for the Bridesmaids I gifted a cuff bracelet called The Lacelet, designed by my friend Jared Udell, a shoe designer that used his shoelaces to form an adjustable bracelet with two knots on either end that is then cast in silver.
Something Borrowed and Blue: My borrowed and blue were the same, a vintage handkerchief my mom lent me from her collection.
