I’m Engaged!

Well it has been quite the weekend. I don’t even know where to start! My sister and my mother flew in on Thursday for a girls weekend and to watch the Oscars on Sunday night. Well little did I know that they were also here to be present at my proposal! Justin and I have been together for 5 1/2 years and EVERYONE in our lives has been asking, “When are you guys going to finally get married!” Well now I can give them an actual answer:) My parents, sister, and Justin’s mom Gigi have all been keeping it a secret for two weeks, which is a huge feat considering I talk to my mother and sister almost everyday! It was the most incredible moment, I was 100% shocked! It’s very rare that someone can surprise me so this was an “out of body experience” for sure! I was so thankful that my sister and my mother where there to not only witness this most precious moment, but to document it as well. The fact that I have images of Justin on his knee is so so so so amazing to me. I start to cry just thinking of how thankful I am for these images. Here are a few of my favorites:

It was so cold that day, but they still managed to get me out on the beach:) I thought I was there to take family photos…..perfect ruse to get me out there with my camera! I love that Charlie got to be apart of it as well, even though he has no clue what’s going on:)

I was a hot mess!

I love this one….tear!

My mom drew this in the sand and I managed to take a picture with my camera. My brain had stopped working so I could barley figure out how to use my camera! I’m surprised I even got a good exposure;) The ring is so perfect. He knows I like sapphires and diamonds together and it fits perfectly. I’ve been sleeping with it on every night;)

This was a few weeks ago when Justin called my Dad for his blessing:) This photo makes me cry every time. Thank you mom for thinking to take a picture!!!

It’s been a whirlwind, and now that things are somewhat back to normal it’s starting to really sink in. I’m so incredibly happy, and I look forward to spending the rest of my life with my best friend and better half. Thank you Justin for making me the happiest girl in the world, I LOVE YOU!

    My love!!! Im so happy for you both. Since i’ve met you, you and Justin have had a beautiful connection. Katie, i know you have been very patient waiting for this moment, but im sure Justin has too. He planned it all so beautifully. I cannot think of a better way he could have proposed. You can tell that all details were considered… It was perfection! It was beautiful of your family to be part of one of the most important experiences of your life. You both deserve it all! Congrats my dears! I miss you both. Its been too long.
