LOVE on a High Note : Surprise Proposal | Ellis + Crystal

Well Hello there. 

It's been awhile, to say the least. Our blogging career hasn't been as successful as we'd hoped BUT we're willing to make that sacrifice for all of the other WONDERFUL things happening with By Love Events

As some may (or may not) know, in addition to wedding planning we also offer proposal planning. Honestly, Truly, LOVE STORY OBSESSED! In honor of the biggest proposal season of the year we wanted to “throw it back” to this past July and tell the story of this super romantic garden proposal.

Lucky enough we were called on by Ellis to help design the cover page of love's next chapter for a beautiful woman named Crystal. These two are just ..... STUNNING and absolutely GENUINE, they're clearly in love which made watching this unfold simply magical.  When Ellis reached out he made it known how much Crystal meant to him and how special this moment needed to be.

Ellis and Crystal arrived for a personal guided tour of Norfolk Botanical Gardens, on a luxury tram of course! Their tour guide drove them to a private site allowing them to further explore on their own. to Crystal's surprise a walkway lined with rose petals and Romance, Romance, Romance (which was Ellis' only request) awaited her! He even threw in special treat when he decided to have a close friend serenade so it’s safe to say our hearts literally melted! 

Special thanks to the awesome vendor team that helped make this moment so special! All images courtesy of Chad Flucas Photography, Video filmed and edited by Brandon Mitchell Films, Custom Signage provided by Lauren Nicholson of Virginia Handwriting Co.
