On April 13th, the man I love & have prayed for my whole life got down on one knee & asked me to be his forever. It was the best day of my life & I am so excited to finally share all of the details & little moments with you! Here’s the story.
We were shopping for Christmas. The whole family was there & the store was packed! Adson and I randomly stopped to look at rings (because I liked to make him do that sometimes, haha) and we came across the most beautiful ring I had ever seen. I had always told Adson that I wanted something small, but this was the complete opposite. I was in love! We eventually walked away and kept shopping, but both of our minds were thinking of the ring. Adson was able to sneak away for a few minutes to tell my sister that he was going to buy the ring. He knew it was the one. So immediately they went on a mission. My mom grabbed me to distract me & Molly was spying on both of us. I was clueless the entire time!
I scheduled a hair appointment and Adson saw that as a prime opportunity to go talk to my parents. He sat down with them and asked for their permission to make me his wife. Which now that I think about it, they still haven’t told me much about this day. I need details! Anyways, once they were done… the planning began!
One of my photographer friends, Jamie, reached out to me asking if Adson & I would model for her. She said she needed some updated photos for her style guide & we were a perfect fit. I immediately responded DUH because I love getting new pictures with my guy! The date she chose just happened to fall on my only free Saturday in April & that didn’t even seem odd to me! Turns out, this was all Adson’s plan. Adson had reached out to Jamie asking her to be there to capture the moment. He came up with this whole plan & they pulled it off flawlessly. I’m telling you, I was clueless!
I was so excited! Adson wasn’t acting strange at all & I still didn’t suspect anything (even with the huge bulging ring box in his pocket which I literally never saw!!)… I’m telling ya… this girl knew NOTHING! Haha! We showed up to Bok Tower Gardens, met Jamie, and began taking photos in our favorite spots around the Gardens. We walked over to our very favorite location & when we got there, I noticed lots of random people sitting around with their iPhones out. There was even a creeper hiding in the bushes (later I found out that this “creeper” was our good friend, Isaac)! I thought maybe they were doing something for Bok Tower and kept on with our photo shoot.
After a few more minutes, Jamie asked me to close my eyes and THEN IT HAPPENED! I opened my eyes to see Adson down on one knee holding the most beautiful ring!!! I couldn’t believe he had kept me oblivious for so long and I couldn’t believe we were finally ENGAGED! Of course I said YES immediately!
Adson did the most perfect job planning the most perfect proposal. It was a day I had dreamt of my whole life & it was finally here & more perfect than I ever imagined. I am so excited to spend the rest of my life with the most amazing man as my HUSBAND! Enjoy taking a peek into our proposal story!
Thank you Jamie Leigh Photography & Isaac Leimeister for being a part of this day & leaving us with forever memories.
