Are you ready for part 2 of Paul and Kelly’s Hotel Emma engagement session? After a quick change of clothes, we headed outside to explore the area around Hotel Emma. I love natural light and it was the perfect time of evening when the sun turns warm and golden. Here are my favorites. (Can. Not. WAIT. for their Hotel Emma wedding this summer!)
Their proposal story, written by Kelly:
Paul surprised me the entire day. I had no idea what was going on. We started the day with a wonderful breakfast and a hair appointment for me. Then to my surprise, we climbed into a Mercedes s550 convertible to start our adventure.
We drove first to the mall where we picked out a “thank you” gift for the gal who helped him arrange the weekend plans. (She was wonderful to work with.) The gift was from Tiffany’s so I (Kelly) was mildly jealous at the thought that another woman would get Tiffany from my honey before me. I also knew that he put a lot of work into the weekend and Taylor deserved it for putting up with his particular ways.
We then we to a helicopter pad and flew to a winery. We enjoyed a private tour. Then we were served a delicious lunch and LOTS of wine. We began to walk outside on the patio, hung out by the fountain, then walked down into the grass. It was then that Paul pointed out pictures of our families on a trellis nearby. We exchanged hugs and kisses before he got on his knew and presented me with a BEAUTIFUL classic, Tiffany diamond ring and the only question that comes with it, “Will you be my wife?” Of course I said yes, even ugly cried and held him. We walked down the yard to the helicopter to make our grand exit. It was perfect in every way imaginable. Every girls’ dream come true.
