Flashback to this perfect day! Ben and his family had sought out to plan an amazing surprise proposal for sweet Courtney. This was a family affair flying in from Kentucky to witness this special moment. Ben knew Courtney loved San Diego, particularly the beach in Del Mar, so it was already an easy choice where it should be! To seal the details, I planned the perfect spot and timeline for Ben and his family as it was also a request from the family to be able to hide somewhere to witness the proposal. When it came down to the final last minutes before Ben and Courtney arrived, Michael and I got into our spots and waited discreetly for the moment to happen. And when it finally happened, it was the most heartfelt and emotional moment to witness! Courtney’s reaction was absolutely priceless as she was speechless and in tears of joy. SHE SAID YES! The family came running out with open arms and the biggest smiles on their faces and I tell you it was a pool of tears left and right. It was a beautiful moment. After some time to recollect, I took the newly engaged couple down to the beach where we continued the celebration with a mini engagement session. It was the perfect day and I’m so happy for this entire family. Congratulations lovebirds and happy wedding planning back in Kentucky! 🙂

If I could describe this proposal/engagement session, it would be: Heartfelt, Magical, Dreamy, Happy!
