A Day at the OC Fair

Side Binding of 6 year anniversary scrapbook

Guess what internet? I'm getting married! That's right. I proposed to Kristina Chung yesterday and she said yes!

I actually started planning my proposal a year ago. Kristina and I had just celebrated our 5-year-anniversary at the LA Fair and it brought back memories of our first date at the Midstate Fair. That inspired me with the idea of proposing to her at a fair on our 6-year-anniversary.

I knew I wanted to make it special for her with a bunch of things that would mean something to us. I already had the fair idea for WHERE to propose. I just needed to come up with the HOW to propose. I knew how much fun she had on a scavenger hunt on the LA Fantastic Race and I knew how much she enjoys scrapbooking so I thought I would combine the two.

I first made a scrapbook with pages that celebrated our favorite locations in the fair, including the art gallery, pig races, and funnel cake. I then added blank places on the pages that needed photos. What I had in store was for the two of us to run around the fair collecting these pages and filling them out using a cool Polaroid camera my co-worker told me about.

To scatter the pages around, I handed out the incomplete pages to our friends and family before hand. Kristina was truly surprised to see all of them at her 6-year-anniversary party. She was even more surprised when I went down on one knee at the fountains in the center of the fair.

It was a wonderful day that made me so happy to have such wonderful friends and to have such an amazing fiancé. Man am I excited for the wedding site to come :)

The last time we rode the zipper, my keys fell out of the ride. I had a lot more luck this time.

The art gallery had the best artwork we had ever seen at the fair.
