Shelton & Mitchell

Las Vegas

Mitchell planned a trip to Las Vegas (which happens to be my favorite place) over Memorial Day weekend last year. During the day before he proposed, he was very quiet which is not like him one bit and he spent a lot of time on his phone. I wasn’t sure why he was acting so strange, but we continued having a great day enjoying the pool, drinks, and gambling. That night, he surprised me with having a limo take us to the Bellagio hotel to watch the water show. Once the water show was over, he got down on one knee and asked me to marry him. This was the easiest “yes” of my life. Right after Mitchell put the ring on my finger, my parents and his parents jumped out from hiding behind a tree and yelled, “surprise!”. Mitchell knows how close I am with my parents, so it meant the world to me that he arranged for them to be a part of such a big day. Mitchell also arranged to have a professional photographer capture our special moment. We then popped a bottle of champagne and the limo took us to the Stratosphere for a nice dinner to celebrate. I cannot wait to marry you, Mitchell James!
