Daniel & Emily’s Surprise Elizabethan Gardens Proposal

Get ready for the sweetest Surprise Elizabethan Gardens Proposal EVER! Emily’s mom emailed me to tell me Daniel planned to propose on their upcoming OBX trip and inquired about having the moment captured. Anyone who knows me knows that I LOVE a proposal….it’s one of my favorite things to photograph! After locking in the date and time Daniel and I started planning the logistics of where and how it would take place. I already knew the perfect spot and after a quick trip to the gardens to scout it out we put the plan in motion! 

Just before their trip I emailed Daniel a map of the gardens with instructions to take Emily to the bench on the Great Lawn, which sits under a gorgeous tree with plenty of space for me to hide and for Emily’s family to hang back but still see! Daniel followed the plan to a “T” and it went off without a hitch! Emily had one of the best reactions and I loved getting to walk the gardens to photograph them in their newly engaged glow!
