Surprise Proposal at Yorktown Beach

Congratulations to Andrea and Allie! They just recently got engaged on a cool, windy day at Yorktown Beach!

Andrea reached out to me a few months ago, planning this perfect surprise proposal for her girlfriend, Allie. Andrea picked Yorktown Beach because the two of them spend a lot of their downtime there! I, personally, have a special connection to Yorktown Beach because that's where my husband proposed! So when Andrea said, she wanted to propose at Yorktown Beach, I was all ready on board!

Andrea and I met up an hour before Allie was supposed to show up to the beach, and we scouted out the perfect location under a tree, away from people and near the water! We set up a cute picnic blanket, and Andrea brought a cute pumpkin and some wine where she customized the label. She also brought some hay to give it a more fall mood!

The most special part was the piece of wood that Andrea made that was the winning question:

Andrea and Allie had such a fun personality, I had such a pleasure working with them!

Allie's ring is absolutely beautiful. It is modern yet very unique! Andrea also customized this ring box just for the occasion!

To the happy couple! May your wedding planning be smooth sailing from here!

If you loved these images and are planning on proposing to your special someone, please reach out for a custom quote! I'd love to chat with you about all the special details you have planned!
