This Groom Told His New Bride They’re Growing The Family. Then She Saw His Mystery Gift And Gasped
Tim and Lee were a happy couple who had been together for much of their life. After attending college together and falling in love, Tim proposed. Ecstatic, Lee bought Tim an incredible gift that she knew he would like: a brand new computer. However, Tim had prepared something even more exciting for his soon to be wife, something that he knew would make her heart skip a beat.
Slide One: While in school, Tim had been a major computer nerd who loved programming and who designed games. However, he had fallen out of the habit over the last few years. His new computer gave him the ability to perform these fun and exciting tasks again, as well as plan his incredible wedding surprise for Lee.
Slide Two: The first element of Tim’s surprise was finding a traditional kimono for Lee’s mother. Before immigrating to the United States, Lee’s mother had followed traditional Japanese ceremonies. By getting her a gorgeous kimono, Tim helped prepare her for the incredible experience of her daughter’s wedding.
Slide Three: The other big surprise that Tim had in mind for his perfect bride was their wedding destination: Paris! Lee had always been in love with the culture and history of France and wanted to check it out while she still had time to travel. Tim knew this and decided to create an incredible destination wedding experience.
Slide Four: The first step on their Paris journey would be to check out the gorgeous Notre Dame cathedral and explore it. As a major literature lover, Lee had read “The Hunchback of Notre Dame” a dozen times, and Tim knew she would love to see what cathedral inspired this famous and well-loved story.
Slide Five: After this visit, they would move on to the Grand Palais and check out this incredible monument. Lee’s interest in history would inspire her to love this amazing building. Tim knew that she could hardly control her excitement the moment she saw this incredible building.
Slide Six: While still in Paris, they would then visit the Bastille. After serving as a prison and an art gallery, this building had to be seen to be believed. Tim was just as excited as he knew Lee would be about this visit.
Slide Seven: Finally, their tour would climax at the tallest building in the city, the Eiffel Tower. The two would climb to the top and get a gorgeous view. Along with the rest of their family, they would experience one of the most thrilling and engaging moments in their lives.
Slide Eight: Even before making a single booking, Tim knew he had to prepare for some of the more fundamental concerns. For example, he would have to get the cake cooked. Jenny, Lee’s best friend, was an expert cake preparer who had made cakes for years. Tim knew he could trust her to keep the wedding a secret.
Slide Nine: After talking to Jenny, Tim felt confident about her cake making abilities. While she had made some pretty epic cakes in the past, she was also able to make some rather light ones as well. Tim had a very distinct idea of the cake he wanted for his wife, one that surprised Jenny and which would delight Lee.
Slide Ten: Lee was a major Star Trek fan, particularly the “Next Generation” series. So Tim, in his wisdom, decided to celebrate that by focusing the cupcake work on her favorite character: Captain Picard. While the cake itself would be traditional, Jenny would make a cupcake decoration to look like Picard’s actor, Patrick Stewart.
Slide Eleven: This decoration idea might seem silly to some, but it is appropriate. On the show, Captain Picard is from France and fiercely proud of it. That was a big reason why Lee was such a fan of him, and Tim knew she would love the decoration created by Jenny.
Slide Twelve: So on that special day, Tim got down on his knee and asked Lee for her hand in marriage. This act was done in front of her whole family and was an incredible experience. She said yes and then learned the unbelievable truth about her Paris wedding. She was so excited, she almost fainted into her mother’s arms!
Slide Thirteen: So everyone flew over to Paris and experienced an incredible wedding. Lee looked incredible in her gorgeous wedding gown, and Tim was handsome in his tuxedo. After the reception was over and the Picard cupcakes eaten, Tim, Lee, and their families went on to explore the incredible city of Paris.
Slide Fourteen: Their first stop was Notre Dame, and Lee was moved by the experience. Taking photos was exciting and unforgettable for everyone. She was especially happy with the chance to kiss Tim in front of the cathedral as his wife.
Slide Fifteen: At every other destination, plenty of great photos were taken. Everyone in the whole family got involved, though Lee was starting to get a little hot in her dress. No matter: all eyes were on her and Tim as they explored this great city.
Slide Sixteen: Everyone was getting excited by all of this picture taking. Even Lee’s sister Wan got into the act, taking some great photos of everyone in the party. Wan was particularly happy about this wedding, as she had caught the bouquet and was more than ready to get married after her little sister beat her to the punch.
Slide Seventeen: After her incredible whirlwind journey, Lee was more than a bit tired. The two of them walked around the city after visiting the Eiffel Tower, arm in arm, happy to be spending time with each other. All of this work reminded her of why she loved Tim and only deepened her appreciation for the hard work he did to provide her with an incredible life.
Slide Eighteen: These days, Lee and Tim are waiting for the birth of their first child. They are excited to be parents and hope to provide their newborn with the kind of exciting life they experienced that day in Paris.
