Happy 4th of July, friends! This holiday holds such a special place in my heart because on this day two years ago, my best friend (and now husband – YAY!), Benjamin, got down on one knee to ask me for the honor of spending the rest of my life with him. As if that moment wasn’t magical enough, he proposed in a hot air balloon at the 4th of July Balloon Rally at Virginia Military Institute in Lexington with my family watching every second below. What more could a girl ask for, right?! I screamed (or sobbed) “OF COURSE!” and the rest is history! After all, according to my husband, “What’s more romantic than American freedom?” So the 4th was a perfect choice! (More to come on that happy day later!)
I love the roller coaster of emotions from left to right. Top left: I have no clue what’s going on and Benjamin is smirking because he knows what’s coming next! Top middle: He starts pouring his heart out and I start crying immediately because I finally realize what’s happening. Top right: Pure joy, happy tears and “YES!” Bottom left: Thumbs up and one proud fiance! Bottom right: <3
I truly couldn’t have imagined a more perfect, meaningful and symbolic day for the launch of this new chapter and business venture. Throughout our engagement, I loved every aspect of planning all of the fun for our big day. It was a process I truly enjoyed, so a big dream of assisting newly-engaged couples with their own wedding planning journey quickly followed. With this business, I hope to make this process a peaceful and enjoyable experience for my couples so they are able to enjoy every moment of this truly magical time in their relationship.
Our Boonie Bear was another special part of Benjamin’s proposal! Plenty more to come on Boone, too! 🙂
I have been dreaming of this day for what seems like forever and it is so incredibly exciting that the Brooke Shehan Weddings and Event launch is finally here! I am also incredibly honored that you’re joining me in the excitement and hope that you will continue to follow along to hear all about the exciting things to come! It is my dream for this Blog to be an intentional space for you to get to know me, my business, my beautiful couples and all of the things that make my heart so very happy.
Thanks again, from the bottom of my heart, for your support and encouragement! I love you all!
My beautiful aunt, Kathy Jennings, is the brilliant photographer who took all of the pictures from Ben’s proposal. You’ll be seeing a lot of her beautiful work around these parts. More to come on her, too! 🙂
