Seriously– is this real life? This is the second proposal we’ve covered this year! The house was full of excitement when we arrived. Taylor was putting the finishing touches on everything, his sister was arranging rose petals down the walkway, and Lacey’s mom was keeping track of where everyone was and when Lacey would arrive.
And everyone was trying to stay calm while being over the top excited!
Lacey’s family decided to go sit on the dock and enjoy the gorgeous weather, and when she saw the rose petals, she knew! Okay, well maybe she saw me hiding in the shadows behind a boat, too…
Taylor didn’t waste any time asking her to marry him. And of course she quickly said yes!
You know what’s awesome? She didn’t even know he was in town! They live in Tennessee and she was up here in Virginia for the week visiting her family and friends. But the surprises didn’t end there.
Once they got back to the house, family and friends were waiting to congratulate them. And Taylor didn’t know it, but his parents had just gotten off a plane from Tennessee as well! It was really awesome to see both families celebrating together.
Normally I only get a few minutes to photograph a ring, but that night I had plenty of time, but had trouble finding the perfect spot. I ended up with a *few* totally different but fun spots! Okay… maybe I went a little wild. I spy three Fowler Studios brides in this picture! Lacey’s older sister Tommi & her husband Zeb are in there (with her adorable baby bump #2!), we’re doing a Deluxe Highlight Film for Ally’s wedding in May, and now we’ll be covering Lacey’s wedding! Congratulations Lacey + Taylor!
