Event Planning – Jill & Jorge’s Beach Proposal

2014 is definitely the year that brought me back to doing events – and I’ve loved every single one. I’ve planned/crafted for/set up a baby shower, a bachelorette, a few birthdays, a baptism, and a couple of other things here and there, but one of my favorites definitely has to be this proposal. I’ve known Jill and Jorge for about five years now, and they’re one of the most adorable couples ever. They have been together for eight years, and a lot of that time was spent apart, living in different states or cities. Once they were finally in the same zip code, our group of friends jumped for joy.

At some point in late February, Jorge reached out to me with an idea for a beach proposal, and he had a date: April 12th (because Jill’s grandma would be in town). He drew up a sketch of what he envisioned, and let me run wild with it. He originally wanted to propose at Sunset Pointe or Ft. Lauderdale beach, but there was an event that weekend, and we had to look into other options. I had been to the Anglin’s Fishing Pier at Lauderdale-by-the-Sea once before, and I thought this would be the perfect place for the event, so we had a “site visit” and he was on board.

Since this proposal involved our whole group of friends, I held a crafting session for the girls so we could work on the signs and other props we would need. Everything was exactly what Jill wanted. Her cousin was also in on the planning, and she helped us refine the details to make it perfect for Jill. I also had the very nerve wracking duty of capturing every moment, and I definitely felt the pressure to capture everything and not miss a single beat. Without further ado, here are a few shots from one of the most emotional proposals ever!

And finally, our whole group got together for a pic with the newly engaged couple!

Congrats Jill and Jorge, and thank you for letting me be a part of this beautiful moment ❤
