Rebecca and John’s Engagement

img_1740John and I were traveling to New York City for his first trip there this summer. I spent the day of our engagement dragging John from store to store on our way to Central Park. He seemed in a hurry to get there, but I just thought he was excited to see it.

When we finally made it, we were walking through the park and found a really beautiful opening around the lake where you could see the Plaza Hotel and other buildings in the background. We stopped to take a photo and agreed to take another couple’s photo if they took ours. After a few pictures, John said “One more!” and got down on one knee. I was absolutely shocked! He said the sweetest things to me and I was in tears. Of course I said yes!

The other couple kept taking pictures of us and I am so thankful that we now have the memory documented. Turns out they were also from Houston!

We had about an hour to digest our exciting moment and make a few calls to our families. Then we headed straight to 30 Rock to see the taping of The Tonight Show! One of my best friends lives in the city so she met us for champagne that evening and made us dinner reservations at a quaint, romantic restaurant in the West Village. It was the most perfect day!

From start to finish Grayland and his team were nothing short of fantastic and felt 100% comfortable the whole time.... Read More »
