    B and I are just so happy beyond any words. Matt is an amazing fellow and has been such a great friend to B for so long (almost 10 years!). We knew the right girl would come along for him and we are ecstatic that it’s you. You have made such a positive impact in his life and we couldn’t imagine either of you with *somebunny* else. Congratulations, a thousand times over. <3

    Oh guys, I know I said it on facebook already but once again congratulations a gazillion times over. I love the unconventional-ness (?) of this as we too also had a very unconventional wedding (we never even had an engagement, so you are in good company. But hey it’s not about me, it’s about you guys, so here’s to you both. I’ll be toasting you guys from Saudi Arabia with my non alcoholic drink 😉 Love to you both xxxx

    Congrats Amber and Matt! I was so happy to meet you guys at VVC and I am so happy that such a great couple is getting married. Being in an unconventional couple myself, I so appreciate all the little details of your proposal story. Love your ring too! I can’t wait to read all the details as you plan the wedding. 🙂

    Congratulations! Love the ring. My hubby proposed to me spontaneously with a ring from a gumball machine. We upgraded to a platinum band with a heart-shaped diamond not long after.

    I’m so excited for you. It’s gonna be the best vegan wedding ever. You have to get it featured in VegNews magazine.

    Congratulations to you and Matt!

  22. Alayna @ Thyme Bombe

    Ahhhh! What awesome news! You two are so wonderful together and obviously made for each other if he could confidently present you with such a unique ring. (LOVE it, by the way.) My husband proposed to me with tattoo needles in lieu of a ring, which we hope to some day use to permanently ink our rings onto our fingers with. I loved that he knew I was the kind of girl who would LIKE to be proposed to in a bar without a diamond. So happy that you two are so happy together. 🙂

    Congratulations to you and Matt! It’s kind of funny because I just started following this blog, but I kind of saw this coming! You guys exude this true happiness in all of your photos. I love the ring! Is there a story behind it or is it something he knew you would love?

  54. Bobbie {thevegancrew}

    Oh my goodness, congrats, Amber!! That’s such exciting news, and I can’t wait to read about your almost vegan wedding! And on a slightly less exciting note, I’m hoping you’ll share more about that awesome vegan tasting menu?

  55. Deanna

  57. Simone

    How EXCITING!!! I am SO happy for you both <3 Just think of how many people will be offering to cater your wedding!! I'm too far away 🙁 but I can only imagine you'll be inundated with offers:) We all mean well, haha.
    Wonderful, wonderful, wonderful news!

  58. Vanessa

  61. rawkinmom

    SO EXCITING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Congratulations!!!! Can’t wait to read about what I am sure will be a very unique wedding!!!

  62. Ellen

    Congratulations!! So exciting! I’m very happy for you and your new adventure 🙂

  63. Sharon

    Congrats! I LOVE THAT BOX!!! I collect boxes and think that would have been enough for me, no ring needed, ha ha! However your ring is great, and I will assume bunnies mean something very personal and special for you guys.

    Now the restaurant setting, that looks fab and that place is very conventional in the specialist sense, (that of being proposed to). For some reason a petting zoo with bunnies, comes to mind as an un-conventional proposal site! Glad you had that gorgeous restaurant with the 10 course vegan meal tho. Looking forward to the blog.

  64. Rose Pedals Vegan Weddings

    Congratulations!! That’s so exciting and I love your ring (and am jealous of the 10-course vegan tasting menu – never even heard of anywhere with that in the world). Rose Pedals has a listing of vegan wedding vendors that could help you out (http://www.rosepedalsveganweddings.com/vegan-vendors) and we would love to feature your wedding when it happens (http://www.rosepedalsveganweddings.com/submissions). Yay!
