Oh where to even start with this one! A month or so ago, one of my very dearest cousins contacted me about a surprise proposal to his girlfriend of many years, Emily. Jordan grew up right across the street from me, and as his older cousin, I babysat him and watched him grow up. He met Emily in middle school, and they have been a couple ever since. Enduring all of high school and college at different schools, the ups and downs of teenage life, and entering into adulthood together, has not always been a walk in the park. They have moved from Pennsylvania to Florida, to Georgia, as they continue to build their careers and life together.
We were all waiting for years now for Jordan to finally pop the question, so when he told me I was in on the big secret, AND would be able to witness it as their photographer, I was pretty excited. After deciding on Hershey Park Christmas Candylane as the spot, there were a few kinks to work out with the lighting and timing, but Jordan was able to pull it off. Hershey Park did an amazing job helping to plan and coordinate the engagement, and the Hershey Kiss even got in on the fun. Both families were present to witness Jordan get down on one knee, and of course, Emily said YES! Actually, I think she said "it's about time"!
Congratulations to Emily and Jordan. Now you can begin the fun journey that is wedding planning!
