Stacey and Alec
How We Met
We met through mutual friends…we kept seeing each other out and about. I always wanted to get to know him because I thought he was so mysterious! After years of bumping into each other we finally went out on a date at the start of 2014. Our first date was romantic and we knew we were destined to fall in love!
How He Asked
I am a marriage proposal planner here in New Orleans (Project Proposal) so I never thought I could be surprised until last Sunday! My boyfriend told me that he was planning to take me to an engagement party for his friend at Celebration in the Oaks at City Park in New Orleans. When we first arrived, he took out a card that was addressed to the friend and ripped it open. Inside were photos of us and reasons why he fell in love with me. As my eyes filled with tears he walked me through the lit gardens and explained each card.
Then, we turned the corner and under a huge oak tree was a stunning setup with candles and three singers who began to sing the song we danced to on our first date, “Ooo Baby, Baby” by Smokey Robinson. He proceeded to tell me how wanted to spend the rest of his life with me and asked for my hand in marriage. After the proposal, my sister who flew in from Florida popped out with the rest of our family. It was truly unforgettable…especially from someone who plans proposals for a living!
