Proposal Ideas Universal Studios Orlando Florida in front of the Hogwarts Castle

How We Met

Mike and I met in high school in 2008. Mike was a Senior and I was a Junior. I was actually dating someone else but as soon as I met Mike I knew that he was the one for me. I broke it off with my boyfriend and Mike and I started talking. We only knew each other for a month ( May is our official date month!) before we started dating and two weeks later he told me he loved me! The rest is history!

How They Asked

For our 10 year anniversary ( May 2018) I decided to take a trip to Walt Disney World and Universal Studios. Each day Mike would ask me what the plan was for the day and I would get a little frustrated because I made a binder with all the information. Each day at the park we would go thru security and he would be very slow and I would get a little frustrated (again) because I wanted to hit the parks! Disney came and went and it was now time to explore Universal! I am a huge Harry Potter fan and that was the first place we went! We rode the Forbidden Journey and if was off to Ollivanders to get a wand! We walk in and I was chosen to get a wand! I felt like a kid in a candy store! We walked around the park and I used my wand and was having an amazing time! Little did I know that Mike had some magic up his sleeve! We saw a photographer at the bridge and I bought the photo pass and we got our regular picture and the camera guy goes “why don’t you cast a spell on him” and I was excited and said “great idea”. I went to put my book bag down and I turned around, the wand in the air to Mike on his one knee and he asked me to marry him!

At first, I stated “what is that” and I asked him if that was real, he laughed and then re-asked me and I said, of course, I’ve been waiting 10 years for this! He also told me that he asked the guy at Ollivanders to pick me because he was going to propose! It was the most magical week of my life and I can’t wait to spend the rest of my life with him!
