It’s the best “how we met” story. They were modeling for us during a winter styled shoot and the first thing Katelyn said to George was, “Hi! I’m your bride!” They playfully posed in the freezing cold, holding each other close for warmth. A few days later Katelyn said they were talking more and more after the shoot. It was long before they were dating and truly had one of the best “how we met” story.
Fast-forward almost two years later and there we were—hiding behind trees waiting. George had come to us months prior with the most epic idea for a proposal. Since Katelyn is obsessed with anything dinosaur related he wanted to do a Jurassic Park themed surprise proposal.
George purchased the barbasol shaving cream (with the removable bottom of course), picked out some dinosaur hoodies for his two children to wear, and showed us where to hide.
We waited in the woods for two hours while Katelyn was getting her hair and nails done by Jessica Mariin Hair & Makeup Artistry. Katelyn didn’t know that we all worked it out with Jessica to have a day of pampering and to look fabulous in the process. During those two hours we set up the fog machine and generator (huge thanks to Double Trouble DJ’s!).
Then we got the “on our way” text from George and took to our hiding spots. His children were dressed and ready to “dinosaur walk” their way out of the woods. The Bose Bluetooth speaker was queued up with the theme song from Jurassic park and the fog machine was ready to go.
As they walked up together, hand in hand, the children made their way out of the woods, the music volume turned up, the fog machine started blowing, and George pulled the barbasol can from it’s secret hiding space. Tears immediately started flowing from Katelyn’s face and as she said “YES!” they all hugged in joy. To see their love grow from meeting during the first photo shoot to this amazing surprise proposal was incredible! We are incredibly honored to be a part of something so amazing! Congrats George & Katelyn! Let the wedding planning begin!
