It’s always exciting when that email hits my inbox: “We’re planning a trip to Florida and I’d like to propose to my girlfriend and have a photographer document it!” A Palm Beach proposal was just what I needed to get my mind off all this COVID stuff!
Matt and Emily were already planning their wedding (thanks, COVID) and future together, but the trip from Nashville to Palm Beach was a surprise for Emily. In the weeks leading up to his proposal, Matt and I discussed yummy restaurants for a quick margarita and snacks, and Google-Map’ped our faces off trying to find the perfect spot for his proposal to Emily and a quick engagement session.
We decided on Worth Ave in Palm Beach for the European feel, beautiful architecture, and low population in the summer months.
Funny story about the moments before he popped the question: I knew Matt and Emily were in the area, and watched as they walked right on by the clock tower – which was crawling with visitors. So Matt booked it down the avenue towards a restaurant. I followed behind them, frantically calling friends and family because I figured I’d look less suspicious (haha!). Matt dipped into a restaurant, texted me that they were heading back, and I ran back to the tower to try to clear the crowds…
Anyway, our plan worked! I sweetly (and sweatily – whew it’s hot out there!) asked a few people for some space around the clock tower, and Matt’s proposal plan worked itself out.
She said yes! (Duh!)
