We’re tying the knot with yarn!

On March 4th, 2017, while traveling through Europe, Nate surprised me with a spontaneous proposal in the Amsterdam Schipol Airport. As we were heading to the bathrooms (haha!) he got down on one knee and asked me to marry him!

He was shaking, I was shaking, I was crying, and of course, I said YES! We’ve been talking about it for some time now and all the plans we were making were leading to this exciting event.

It was very fitting that we had this private moment that included the two of us, my brother and my mom who was able to capture these lovely photos.

No matter how tired we were from all the traveling, our joy carried us through our 13 hour layover where we ventured into Amsterdam city for a celebration dinner.

Upon arrival back to the United States, and of course after letting my close friends and family know this exciting news, we started making immediate plans for our wedding.

We are looking ahead and planning an early 2018 wedding celebration. We recently had some engagement photos taken and made our formal announcement on our personal social media accounts. We now wish to share it with all the YARNutopians!

As we journey ahead in the next year planning our event, we are excited to tie in elements of our cultures and OF COURSE, elements of crochet! I am going a different route on my dress, as many have already asked me if I was going to crochet my wedding gown, but I am absolutely 100% going to incorporate other small details of crochet for this special day.

I’m excited to share this year-long journey with my amazing YARNutopia family and I will be creating tutorials of fun elements that I plan to use on the big day!

I am excited to hear suggestions on crochet projects that you have used for your special events! I’m always open to hearing, so please feel free to share your ideas!! This will be a fun way to share this together!

Please join us in sharing our joy and happiness as we move onto this new and exciting chapter of our lives!

Nadia and Nate

  6. Congratulations to the happy couple! Have you thought about creating some type of headdress /wedding veil, or perhaps a crochet dress for your reception? When I got married instead of a ring pillow I had a beautiful little white box with delicate lace on it. I’m sure whatever you come up with it will be beautiful. Again Congratulations, you’re both lucky to have found one another. BTW, I may have missed it or forgotten, but how did you meet? I’m sure you’ve said already but I have memory problems.
