Scroll below to see this lovely, surprise proposal in Fairhope, Alabama at The Grand Hotel! Wait till you hear how I helped surprise my best friend!
This proposal session was so special for me because Selena is actually my best friend!
When Chad first reached out to me he said that the only preference Selena had ever mentioned about the proposal was for me to be there to photograph it since we were such best friends. But the tricky part was actually making it a surprise for her. We knew that if she saw me there with my camera she would be suspicious, so we came up with a plan for me to post on social media that I was flying to Utah for a shoot that weekend (when in reality I was headed to her surprise proposal)!
Chad decided to propose at the Grand Hotel Resort and Spa in Fairhope, Alabama. He told Selena that they were just going out to dinner with his parents at the hotel and needed to wear something nice, so she already had a nice dress picked out.
The resort was really stunning with nice garden areas, flowers, and ponds to photograph! So, once we decided where they would go for the proposal, I hid behind a bush and waited for them. Selena was so happy and super surprised! She cried as he got down on one knee, it was such a sweet proposal.
After the proposal, they had an engagement party at the Grand Hotel with their friends and family, so Selena actually got a double surprise that day!
It was the sweetest proposal and I absolutely loved being part of it!
