I was in the middle of picking the best cantaloupe when this young and eager guy called me about his proposal plans to his girlfriend.
Dylan was so excited and was thinking through every detail to make this moment as special as can be. He knew he wanted the Williamsburg Winery. It was picturesque and had an indoor option in case of rain. He was literally thinking through all the possibilities! I was impressed.
Alena would be celebrating her birthday and the winery would be the perfect spot for such a celebration! Dylan was going to use her birthday as a distraction for this Williamsburg Winery Proposal.
He met Alena at the front entrance with a horse & carriage ride and champagne. I just loved her reaction saying it was just a birthday! He told her as a birthday gift he had hired us to do some portraits of them. This way she wouldn’t suspect anything else.
As they finished their carriage ride and entered the Winery, they were greeted by all their family. Alena thought it was a surprise birthday party. And although it partly was, there was another surprise coming up.
She was shocked and immediately started to cry. After catching her breath she said yes and everyone cheered!
His plans went perfect and we quickly celebrated with a just engaged photo session!
Thank you Dylan for having us capture this sweet moment! We wish you and Alena the absolute best!
