Here Comes the Bride...

...because my older sister is engaged to her high school sweetheart! After nine years together, her and her fiance (how fancy?!) are finally deciding to tie the knot! I'm so happy for them and I look forward to celebrating with them ASAP but, until then, I'm celebrating in my own way...with a lovely Engagement Mani! I will admit, I have quite a few posts up my sleeve now so make sure to check back often!!
The base is Ulta It's Nude to Me and then on the index and ring finger I painted a diamond ring and the iconic Tiffany & Co. box and bow. For the diamond ring I used Kleancolor Silver Pearl, Kiss Brush On Nail Art Paint in Silver, six Cinapro gem rhinestones, and Orly Shine On Crazy Diamond (what a fitting name right?!) to make the diamond sparkle. To make the Tiffany & Co. box and bow I used China Glaze For Audrey as the Tiffany box base and Kiss Brush On Nail Art Paint in White to create the Tiffany bow.
And now the story: Matt and Steph (pictured above--hopefully she likes this picture...I do!) met nine or so years ago at Steph's Junior Formal. Get this...he wasn't even her date! Anyway, they started hanging out and then dating and then officially became a couple on February 29th of that year (I don't even remember the year it was that long ago). Since then they've become pretty much inseparable and have done so many fun things together. They've spent weeks down the shore, visited Hawaii, rooted on the Phillies at baseball games, enjoyed eating at some delicious restaurants, watched thousands of movies, and spent countless hours together just enjoying themselves. So how did it happen? Well, I'll tell you! Steph absolutely loves New York. She loves Broadway, the delicious Crumbs cupcakes, the atmosphere the Big Apple has to offer, and, of course, Central Park. It is too perfect that Matt would ask her to be his wife in one of her favorite places in the world and he got down on one knee and popped the question (and the ring box) in Central Park by the fountain! 
The rest, as they say, will be history!! 
Congratulations Steph and Matt!
