This was just the sweetest proposal! Anthony worked so hard, along with his family, to prepare his parents’ house in Alpine to surprise his beautiful Ariana. Everything was set up beautifully to surprise her as she walked through the door and took a trip down “Memory Lane.” The family had set up three stations through the house, connected with rose petals. The first station was filled with pictures and memorabilia commemorating their beginnings as a couple. The second station was all about their families and the final station focused on their home and their life together, which includes their adorable puppy! It was so obvious how encouraged Ariana was to see all of the attention to detail and the thoughtfulness of the day that everyone had created.
After walking through the house, Anthony led her out to the backyard, into a heart-shaped ring of rose petals where he reminded her how much he loves her and how much she means to him. Then came the moment when he got down on one knee and asked her to marry him! At that moment the family, who where were all standing on balcony above them burst into applause. So much love! Angelica and I were so honored to be a part of it and to witness this momentous occasion! So special!
After the proposal, both families came downstairs and there were many hugs, smiles, well-wishes, and giggles. This was the first time these two families had met, but there’s nothing like a surprise proposal to bring everyone together! How wonderful to have an opportunity to grow their family! I must say that one of the cutest members of their family had four legs and a cute little button nose and was wearing a bandana that said “Mommy, will you marry Daddy?” What a wonderful touch! This fluffy little puppy seemed to be indicative of Anthony and Arian themselves! Sweet, gentle, fun and full of joy! Congratulations you two, we are beyond thrilled for you and your lovely families!
