Maxx and I met on January 1, 2009, he proposed almost exactly three years later- New Year's Eve at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter. His proposal took place at on a family vacation with my mom and sisters to Orlando, Florida. We love Harry Potter and were going to go to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter theme park. We spent the days leading up to New Years riding rides and exploring the theme parks in Orlando. New Year's Eve, we spent most of the day at Harry Potter world. We rode our favorite roller coaster one last time around 11:15 p.m. and it suddenly broke down.

We were stuck on it for about fifteen minutes, and he later told me he thought it would have to propose on the roller coaster. Luckily, we got off the ride and went to countdown to midnight on the bridge in front of "Hogwarts." Ten second until midnight, everyone started counting down, and Maxx started to tell me how much he loved me, and how perfect the vacation had been. My sisters and mom were staring at us, so I felt nervous and just looked at the castle as everyone counted down. Then I noticed all of them taking our photo. Finally, to get my attention, he dropped to one knee, took the ring out of his pocket and opened it up. I could not believe it had happened, and instantly started crying. It turned midnight and everyone around us clapped.

I could not believe he had kept it a secret (I am so nosey), and he had even rode roller coasters with the ring in his pocket all day. It was the most perfect moment, and we cannot wait for our fall wedding in October.
