Love is in the air! This surprise wedding proposal at Miramar Beach was so exciting! I swear at one point I was more excited than he was! By the time the engagement session was done - these two felt like family! So excited for the both of you!
Chelsea has one of the most spirited personalities I have ever come across! She had everyone on the beach mesmerized - we were all caught up in the joy and happiness of this moment. I asked Chelsea if she would be a "guest blogger" for me and give a little recap from her point of view.... read on!
I knew I was going out to dinner with my boyfriend for our own special night while in Destin with family, and while I knew he had something planned for us, was I in for a treat. After being informed it was a 2 hour wait at the restaurant, I was not the happiest camper. He suggested we go for a walk and so I suggested the beach (which aligned well with his plan), so we headed down the stairs past the restaurant. Upon arriving at the beach, I noticed how cute this spread on the beach was, and was incredibly jealous of their picnic or so it seemed.
Upon suggestion that we go check it out, I was hesitant due to the fact it was not ours. He insisted so I followed along and noticed a well placed note in a champagne bottle. To my surprise, he hands me the note, got down on one knee, and asked me to marry him. Once I said yes of course, I immediately looked up and felt like a celebrity with my picture being taken. Not only had Melonie and her husband captured the whole proposal unbeknownst to me, but they also greeted us as if we were family and had known us our whole lives.
While my now fiancé had made the arrangements (completely online and over the phone), we were surprised to find out she was originally from our area of Michigan as well, prior to moving to Destin which had made this night even more special. I can’t quite put into words how comfortable and happy I was to be flung into a surprise photo shoot, but as Melonie said “you’re a star, have you modeled before” which instantly put all my anxiety to rest. I could not recommend the experience (as well as the proposal of course!) to be done by anyone else as well as they did, from setup to the final product. I will be contacting Melonie for any future photo opportunities as well as recommending her to all, anytime I am back in my favorite place: Destin, FL.
