Seth & Kiley | Dallas Arboretum Surprise Proposal

Bright, blazing happiness.  That’s how I’ll describe Seth’s surprise proposal to Kiley last week at the Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Gardens.  I had been there two days before to photograph an engagement session, and the weather had been cold and gray.  On this day, the sun kept popping in and out behind the clouds, temps were warm and all the world seemed alive and ready for Spring.

One of my favorite Event Stylists, Ana of Inspired by, called me a few days before this surprise proposal and asked if I’d be interested in photographing it.  When Ana is behind the design, I know it will be lovely and elegant, so of course I was onboard!  I learned that Seth had gone above and beyond to express to Kiley how much she means to him.  From hand written calligraphy, to her favorite sweets, he wanted this moment to be perfect.  And it was.

Seth & Kiley, you make a beautiful couple and I wish you a lifetime of joy and happiness.  Congratulations and happy wedding planning!
