My Fair Wedding: Part 1



I'm engaged!!!
What??
Lemme tell you the story!

So, yesterday there was a BIG Bridal Fair at Thanksgiving Point. Emily, Nelsie, Jessica, and I went for some "girl time" for a few hours before Taylor was going to meet up with us.That was the plan.

I thought.

We had been there for a few hours, and I got a few texts from Taylor explaining that he was going to lunch with his brother, and then was stuck in traffic. :( It was uber lame.

Throughout the event, there were various contests on a big stage at the front of the barn. At one point, the head lady explained that she was going to call the name of a pre-registered bride, who would compete against her "posse" for a prize! They called a name. No show. Then called the next name.

"Nikole Clayton"



That's me! So I ran up with my friends excited as all get out! We each got a huge ring-pop frozen in ice, and whoever got the most ice off by the time the music stopped would win!

I took a plastic knife and hacked away! My friends were doing an incredibly crappy job, but it was good for me, right?

Finally, after trying to smash it with my chair, I chucked it on the ground as hard as I could! The music stopped. And I had won.

The lady started asking me questions, while they got my prize. I told her I wasn't actually engaged, and tried describing my dream ring when I turned around and there was Taylor.

I went over and kissed him :) I thought he was there because he had finally arrived and saw me on stage...well.....I was wrong. 

Before I knew it, there was Taylor with a microphone telling me how much he loved me.

It all started to make sense...

Luckily, they recorded it because my head was spinning so fast, I can only remember him telling me he loved me and "You had me from 'well hey.'"

Suddenly, he was on one knee.

I nodded! I was too shocked to talk!

And here I am! Engaged to be Mrs. Nikole Rios. :) :D

Oh, and not only did I win the BEST PRIZE EVER, but they gave me...
A GORGEOUS, and GIGANTIC Bouquet,

 a stay at the Thanksgiving Point Hampton Inn,

and 200 mint chocolate truffles!!!!

I love him so much. He's a dream come true...a dream come true times infinity! I can't wait. Any wedding advice or help is always welcome :)

I'm so in love.


I'm so happy.


Best day ever.
