When Daniel first came to me with the idea of proposing to Kaylee in New York & bringing me along to document, I was ecstatic! I LOVE proposals & I love love love NYC, so I mean what could be better?!
After some serious brainstorming & research, Daniel found the most perfect location & we devised a plan to make this surprise epic. Last Monday, before the sun came up, we both hopped on a plane & secretly made our way to Brooklyn where Kaylee was visiting for a work trip.
The proposal went down on the patio of Westlight Bar in the William Vale Hotel. To say the views were unreal is an understatement- I mean, it's just insane. It was all perfect. Daniel laid out a special blanket that Kaylee had given him as a gift years before & one they frequently use for picnics. The weather was biting cold, but the sun was shining bright. The entire Manhattan skyline was sprawled out behind us. I crouched on the ground behind a wall & Daniel swayed excitedly/nervously back & forth as we waited for Kaylee to arrive for "drinks with friends".
Her face of shock when she first saw him was priceless. She stood frozen with her hands on her face & Daniel had to come lead her to the blanket where he would propose. And just like that, these two high school sweethearts get to be together forever! EEEEK!
