There’s nothing we love more than magical proposal moments! Henry and Jasmine met on Bumble while they both had plans to travel to Dallas. Proximity was key, but some would call it meant to be! They’ve been together about four and a half years before Henry popped the question — he wanted the proposal to be just right!
HOW HENRY PLANNED THE PROPOSAL:
Henry recruited the help of Jasmine’s three best friends; one of which had used Elopement Las Vegas‘ services before and raved about the VIP treatment and service! After speaking with Melanie at Elope Tampa Bay and discussing the idea of a beachside picnic proposal, the plan came together flawlessly. Melanie took care of everything including finding the perfect location and booking a fantastic photographer, Mariah! The trip to Clearwater, FL was originally supposed to be just a vacation, but the beautiful beaches also seemed like the perfect setting for a surprise proposal that was long overdue.
Oh my goodness where do I begin!?! I had an inkling that the proposal could be during our vacation, but didn’t expect such thoughtfulness and attention to details! These ladies had it down to the DETAILS let me tell you! And my favorite cake without being told, intuition to say the least! The weather in Florida has its ups and downs, and when the original time got rained out, they communicated promptly to Henry about waiting it out, and it turned out perfectly! Meanwhile, I watched Henry pace back and forth, worried about the weather as we headed to brunch 😉 Henry wrote down his thoughts and feelings leading up to the proposal, and when I read it, instant waterworks. Everything, I mean everything, was so thought out and planned for, I genuinely can’t thank these ladies enough. We took endless pictures, and the photographer Mariah got some gorgeous sneak peeks to us in the SAME DAY! As a couple that doesn’t take many pictures together, we were coached effortlessly throughout the session and felt so comfortable sharing such a beautiful moment! Got a chance to share the pictures with family and friends the day of the proposal, and I couldn’t be more grateful!
HOW WAS THE PLANNING PROCESS?
The planning process was made easy by Elope Tampa Bay. All I had to do was communicate my idea and they did all the heavy lifting to turn that idea into reality!
The ring is from Helzberg Diamonds. Jasmine was pretty sure about what she wanted so Henry knew EXACTLY what to look for! Henry saw a superior cut, oval shaped halo diamond ring that he couldn’t take his eyes off of! He even left to check out other places and came right back to get the one!
ANYTHING ELSE MEMORABLE?
Best moment was probably taking pictures running through the seagulls. Such a great idea and executed so well!! We had a blast every step of the way of this process, Elope Tampa Bay will forever have a special place in our hearts!
