Heather + Brian: Christmas Stocking Marriage Proposal

What can be better than starting the New Year by ending 2011 with an adorable holiday proposal?! Brian and Heather had the perfect holiday engagement. Heather who loves all things involving Christmas flew with her (now) fiance, Brian, for a quick getaway to celebrate the season in the one and only New York City. Brian wanted the proposal to be thoughtful but also feasible in a city he had yet to visit. Rather than heading to the overpopulated Rockefeller Center, The Yes Girls helped him come up with and execute a rather clever marriage proposal at the Seaport Christmas Tree. Surprised she was!

The “stocking stuffers” they opened before Heather opened her final gift!


Kate, from Kate Gustafson photography, pretended to be a student from NYC who was creating an article regarding what attracted visitors to NYC during the holidays. She asked if they would be willing to participate in her school project which included answering a few questions and capturing their genuine reactions on camera while opening Christmas stockings she was “handing out” as part of her assignment. Brian of course knew the photographer and stockings were part of a ruse, so he happily agreed. Brian and Heather each had their own stockings and little stocking stuffers to open which seemed to match up as they unwrapped each item EXCEPT for the last gift in Heather’s stocking…an engagement ring ornament! Kate who was already taking photos of the couple opening their stockings was ready right then and there to capture Brian getting down on one knee with a gorgeous lit Christmas tree as their backdrop. To top off the evening they watched the holiday light show and Christmas carolers before celebrating over an amazing dinner!

Simply perfect! This proposal makes me miss the holidays already! Congrats again Heather and Brian and enjoy your New Years as a newly-engaged couple.

Love,

We Say Yes Wednesday

Yesterday we did a styled proposal shoot with Chard Photography. It was a very early shoot, but it turned out incredible and we can’t wait to share it with you. Today I wanted to share the DIY clouds I made for the shoot. The styled shoot involved a daydream so I knew we needed clouds to add that dreamy feeling. Here is how I made them:

1. Bought white paper lanterns

2. Bought pillow stuffing at Joanns

3. Open the lanterns and hot glue the first layer of stuffing all around the lantern, leaving a space at the top to tie the string

4. Once the first layer is dry fill in missing spots and glue the second layer mostly on the sides and top. This gives it more of a cloud feel than a perfect circle.

I made them all within two hours!

Love,

Daydream Proposal Style Shoot (coming soon)

Kendall and I got a VERY early start this morning to catch the best lighting for our style shoot with photographer, Rich Lander from Chard Photo. In order to truly get into the nitty gritty details of “how to” create a thoughtful and personal marriage proposal we thought a style shoot as wedding blogs call them may be overdue. I cannot wait to show you the entire set up but as always, I love showing some of the projects we work on in our garage, living rooms, etc. before you see all the romance come to life! We beautified some branches and birch (we we found for free!).


The entire proposal shoot is coming soon…

Love,
