When Jim reached out while deployed overseas to let me know he was planning on proposing to one of my long-time BFFs, Marty, I was BEYOND excited + thrilled to have a front-row seat at such an awesome moment in their lives! Marty is such a thoughtful, kind, amazing friend who was already planning to surprise Jim with a “welcome home” party after returning from overseas…. little did she know that Jim had something else up his sleeve! With the help of his cousin (who was also Marty’s co-party planner), Jim secretly brought together Marty’s family from out of state + close friends to join his “surprise” party. The result? Well, I’ll let the photos speak for themselves. ;)

Best quote of the night was Jim saying, “Who else would be better to plan our engagement party than…well, Marty?” Such a beautiful proposal…for an even more beautiful couple, inside + out. Love you, two! We can’t WAIT to party with you at your 2020 wedding!!
