As promised, I have a holiday treat in store for you. Nothing inspires the warm fuzzies more than the look of pure surprise and happiness on a person’s face during a wedding proposal. It’s pretty much one of my favorite things in this world. I can’t think of a better gift to give my readers today. The couple at the center of this fun is Katherine and Brandon:
The day he proposed wasn’t just an ordinary day. Even thinking about writing this sends chills down my spine. We had planned a photo shoot for my friend Katie Brewer of KB Digital Designs to pose as “bride and groom” for a promotion video she was having done for her business. Brandon and I prepared separately just like any other bride and groom (really he was working while I was being pampered). This was the day of his work Christmas party so we had planned on getting dressed up anyway for the evening. I was getting my hair and makeup done while getting pictures taken and talking about the fake ring I had bought for this shoot. I was making remarks such as, “Ha, I wish this was really happening,” not knowing any of this was actually about to happen very soon. Brandon got off work and I met him to get my dress for the party and his tux. We had a blast taking pictures as bride and groom. The time soon came for us to change into our attire for the Christmas party and leave. Katie had told us she would snap a few pictures of us all done up before the party. As Katie was taking photos Brandon seemed nervous and I leaned over and asked him what was going on because of his behavior. He started whispering in my ear and said, “I love you so much.” I responded with a giggle and an “Umm I love you too…hehe.” He continued to whisper and say “I want to spend the rest of my life with you” and I was just playing along and said “Okay..hehe” and as he said that he reached into his pocket and all I remember is seeing a box and asking a million times if he was serious. All of a sudden I was bawling and had the most beautiful ring on my finger. And everyone was in on it except me. I’m so happy to have photos and even a video of it all to always remember it by! – Katherine
