Forever Fridays: The Starbucks Proposal

This is our very first Forever Friday at Add a Little Sparkle! I am so pumped I am fist pumping right now! Classy! Anyways, This proposal I found a couple months ago and immediately sent it to my stepmom - (She's a coffee devotee). She loved it. I love it. I hope you love it too.

I am just amazed at all the detail this fella went into to propose! Even a wi-fi sign?! Haha. The story goes that this couple's first date was of course, at a Starbucks! Shane told Mikaela, who happens to be a photographer, that they were going for a little photo field trip in a cool place he had discovered. She had to keep her eyes shut until they were in the right spot and when she opened her eyes she saw all this....(tear!)

From Mikaela, “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.”

:) what a doll...

coffee cups from all their trips together :) Matt and I do magnets (don't hate).

I want that cash register so bad...

After the proposal their friends and family came out while the future groom changed into a barista outfit!

I am sorry but this proposal is just awesome....look at all the details and effort! Atta boy!
