I am so glad that we were able to pull off the greatest surprise ever for my little sister for a surprise proposal!

Matt came to me with an idea and he pulled off the best surprise proposal ever! Since day 1 of my business, my sister has been my go to model. So when I asked her to model for a styled shoot, she was all in! Little did she knew we were planning her proposal with an amazing team of vendors!

After we toasted to the future Mr. & Mrs. Hawk, we headed out in the sprinkles to take a few engagement photos! The gorgeous wedding venue, R Wedding House was the perfect place to host this “styled shoot” turned surprise proposal and we are so grateful to our friends at R Weddings & Events for their generosity.
