Engagement Stories .. one of favorite things.

I always have to ask my couples how they met and got engaged. How can you not? It is the one time when guys get reallly get creative, and us girls just love it. Even when we are just listening to the story of how it happened.

What is even better than being told how a couple got engaged?! Watching it unfold right in front of you! Lucky for me, I got to photograph it! So here is the scoop:

My good friend and talented Wedding Planner, Leigh Pearce, of Leigh Pearce Weddings, calls me the week of this exciting proposal. She informs me that she has been working with this soon-to-be engaged guy Jon. He was planning a proposal, and asked if I would be interested in photographing it. From there the details come out. It will all go down at a Starbucks, where Stella’s Mom will want to stop before they head to the “movies”. They will make their way out to the patio, and BAM! A group of very talented guys & gals from Greensboro¬†Performing Arts will start their flash mob singing ” I think I want to marry you” !! It really sounds as awesome as you are thinking!

Needless to say, everything went perfectly, Stella said Yes, and we have pictures to prove it!

A big thanks to Leigh Pearce Weddings, and K2 Productions, who also joined in to film the special moment as well. Be sure to check out their video here. Take a look at this great surprise proposal! Congratulations, Jon & Stella!!
