Do you lovelies love proposal stories? They are one of my most favorite things! Doesn’t matter how simple or elaborate, there is just something so special about that moment in time. And love that so many couple’s these days are capturing those moments! Today’s was captured in both photos + film by the lovely duo of The Parsons. Here is Amy + Chris’ story as told by Ashley Parsons…
When we decided to host Amy’s birthday dinner in our backyard months earlier, we couldn’t have had any idea just how heavenly the night would become…as Chris had decided it was also the night he was going to ask her to become his wife. So we potted succulents, washed off the big table, and brought out the burlap, the lace that used to cover my nana’s table, and the antique English china my mom gave me when we were engaged. We poured the wine, filled the shasta oven-turned-cooler with beer, plugged the lights in, and turned the music on. Friends came from near and far, bearing casseroles and pies (Amy bringing her specialty sweet potato pie) and we had a night of laughing, crying happy tears, and toasting amy. Chris gave his toast last. We all thought it only fitting, since his came with a ring at the end.
Big congrats to Amy + Chris! And thanks again to The Parsons for sharing their sweet story + photos with us.
