What do you get when you put together a surprise birthday party, margaritas, a taco truck and an engagement ring? An epic wedding proposal! I am so excited to share Ashby & Steven’s beautiful proposal!
Steven’s mom and I go waaaaay back so when she called me to see if I could photograph their proposal I knew I had to be there. Ashby was told that they were going out to a fancy dinner for her birthday so her BFF did her hair and makeup and her friends helped her pick out the perfect outfit. Steven told her they had to stop by a family friends house for a get together on the way to dinner but they wouldn’t stay long. To Ashby’s surprise she walked into a room full of her family and friends wishing her a happy birthday!
But wait, that wasn’t all…they told her they had one more surprise for her on the back patio so they blindfolded her and headed out back. That is where we were with a pretty nervous Steven down on one knee ready to propose with his grandmothers wedding ring. There wasn’t a dry eye in the house as Ashby’s blindfold was removed and she realized what was happening. What a beautiful moment it was! She was even more surprised to then look around and see even more of her friends and family waiting to celebrate with them. Once all of the initial excitement died down, the music came on and the margaritas started flowing. There were also yummy tacos and tamales to be had from a taco truck that Steven’s mom arranged because Ashby loves tacos!
It was a perfect day for a perfect couple. I am so happy for you guys and I can’t wait for the wedding! Congratulations! ♥
