So I got engaged this past weekend! It’s been months of planning, I first purchased the ring back in late October of 2011. As you can see in this video I put together, I made her a hidden object game.
So what I actually did was take the pictures. Essentially I took a picture of a clean living room, and then peppered it with various items (and dogs). I had to carefully position each item so as not to have them overlap so that the game could function correctly. I had originally planned to do the programming too, but then realized I had nowhere near enough time to teach myself a programming language, so after assembling production notes, I hired a programmer to assemble it for me.
You can play the game here: Taylor’s Big Day
So then after a month or so of going back and forth with this programmer, I then uploaded it to my site and played the waiting game. I eventually settled on using her birthday as an excuse to propose, since I figured she really wouldn’t be expecting it. I was doing my best over the past few months to throw her off the trail. I even endured a few arguments regarding the topic of weddings and engagement due to my steps to mislead her. Shooting weddings with your girlfriend is NOT a good way to have her not think about getting married.
Anyway, it hasn’t even been a week yet and we’re already in full swing planning the wedding. First step, venue & date. We’re thinking May 25th, 2013. We’ll see! Undoubtedly I’ll be setting up a website for us. I already reserved www.taylorandben.com (benandtaylor.com was taken… go figure).
We’re thinking about doing electronic RSVP’s. What’s your thought on that?
