Nicholas + Myra | Surprise New Year’s Eve Proposal

It’s been one LONG month of keeping this proposal a secret, and I am over-the-moon excited to finally share it with you all!! When Nicholas contacted me about capturing his proposal to Myra on New Year’s Eve, I couldn’t contain my excitement! But when I found out that Ally of Ally Allison Events was styling the entire thing…I was jumping up and down!! Talk about a DREAM afternoon, GAH!

Nicholas, Ally and I all met up a few weeks before the proposal to chat about all of the details + make a game plan for the big day! Nicholas had everything planned to the T…him and Myra would take a sweet walk through historic downtown Fredericksburg and end with a romantic dinner at a local restaurant. But, little did Myra know, Nicholas was planning to propose!! All of her friends + family were waiting at the restaurant, along with a gorgeous styled tablescape to celebrate!! AAHHH! How sweet is that!? I am so honored that they had me there to capture everything unfold!

We had to keep the proposal a secret until yesterday, because Myra had to share it with her sorority first! But we are all SO excited to finally share the results from the gorgeous day! Also, a HUGE thanks to the following vendors for contributing to the stunning details:

Styling: Ally Allison Events

Cake: Sorby Sweets

Florals: One Sweet Day in May

Place Cards: Twila & Co.

CONGRATULATIONS Nicky + Myra, you are both the absolute sweetest + perfect for one another! I wish you both the absolute best, and I’m SO excited for you!! You’re getting MARRIED! AHH!
