Amanda and Jason

How We Met

I am a wedding photographer and Jason is a wedding DJ so we met through work! Jason owns a DJ Photo Video company, so I interviewed for a job and the rest is history!

How He Asked

He knew how much I loved Cinderella so he planned this over the top proposal involving Cinderella with our office staff (our company provides DJs, Photographers, Videographers, Event Planners, etc.). They told me I was shooting a wedding at the Castle at Skylands Manor (the last standing castle in NJ). When I showed up there was a horse drawn cinderella carriage out front and the driver was holding a sign with my name on it. When I realized what was going on, one of our photographers and videographers came out of hiding and started recording.

I was brought over to a little cottage where I was told to go inside and our event planner was waiting for me with an exact Disney Cinderella costume for me to change into. The carriage then brought me to another area of the grounds where I got out to trumpets playing and someone announcing that Princess Amanda had arrived!

I walked down an aisle covered in rose petals and Jason was waiting at the end (in a prince charming costume) with all of our family sitting behind him! It was such a surprise! We ended the day with a photo shoot and stayed the night in the castle which was decorated for us! It was truly magical!
