Jason’s love for Ashley was apparent right from the beginning. He didn’t know how he wanted to “wow” her, but he knew that his proposal needed to be special and unique! Ashley has a son and Jason’s relationship with his soon-to-be-stepson is very important to all three of them, so we definitely wanted to involve him in the proposal moment. So that’s how our idea was started!
Jason surprised Ashley’s with a last minute Christmas gift of a January weekend at a local bed & breakfast in Michigan (little did Ashley know that we were scheming to create one memorable weekend)! The second night of their trip, Jason snuck out of the room while Ashley was getting ready for dinner and left a note that said “meet me in the lobby”. When Ashley walked into the lobby of the hotel she was greeted by a staff member who then escorted her outside to the beautiful, snow covered gazebo on the property! We added in some unique photo-lanterns (glass lanterns that had black and white pictures on the openings) and one lantern that the son held that said “WILL YOU MARRY ME”! Voila, a thoughtful and unique proposal idea that surprised Ashley to the extreme!
