A couple weeks before Thanksgiving we received a call from Kelly asking us to photograph his surprise proposal to his girlfriend Paige. On Thanksgiving weekend he planned to make a surprise visit to Kentucky from Texas so that he could propose. We always love getting to hide and be photo ninjas to capture amazing moments like these. Kevin and I had so much fun planning and being a part of this momentous occasion.
Wildside Winery in Versailles, Kentucky is a very special place to Kelly and Paige because it is where they had their first date. The plan was for Paige’s parents to suggest going to Wildside Winery for drinks the night of the proposal. She had no idea that Kelly was in town or what he had in store for her. Once Paige and her parents arrived at the winery they told her to walk in and make sure the place was still open. Kelly set up a video on his computer with a sign instructing Paige to watch it as soon as she walked in the door. The video contained sweet and beautiful memories that they had shared together. At the end of the video, Paige was told to walk to the back of the winery to the Cellar.
Paige slowly made her way down a narrow hallway and turned the corner to find Kelly standing there waiting for her. You could see her face light up the moment that she saw him. He told her how much she meant to him and how he wanted to spend the rest of his life with her. At that moment he bent down on one knee and asked Paige to marry him. Of course, the answer was yes! After the proposal, they both sat at a small table and enjoyed a glass of champagne together. They toasted to the happiest of occasions and savored what had just happened moments before.
Kevin and I were hiding the entire time hoping that we would not be seen throughout the proposal. Kevin was outside shooting through the window while I was hiding behind some wine barrels. It was so much fun being a part of one of the happiest moments in their life. It was romantic, suspenseful, and joyful to watch as all of Kelly’s plans unfolded. Thank you for trusting us to capture this special moment in your life. We wish you and Paige all the happiness in the world! Thank you to the staff at Wildside Winery for being so nice and helpful.
