There are really no words to describe how happy I am for my sweet friends, Kay & Dennis. I don’t think I’ve ever cried so hard WHILE taking photos. I was just praying the pictures didn’t turn out blurry because I really couldn’t see anything the more the tears flowed!
Can you blame me, though!?
Anyone who has the pleasure of knowing these two incredible human beings knows exactly what I’m talking about. Kay was one of my very first friends that I met when I moved down to San Diego.
I didn’t have any friends here. I was making a big move and nervous of what the future held. But when Kay came into my life, it was as if I knew things were going to be ok. She was so sweet, incredibly welcoming and always thinking of others before herself.
We instantly clicked and before I knew it, we were taking girls trips to LA, Vegas, and Hawaii together. We even took a trip to the Philippines with friends last month! Who knew she would be such a blessing in my life and I would get to the chance to travel the world with this sweet soul.
On one of our girls trips, a few of us girls were hanging out in the hotel room. Kay wasn’t there yet, but we were all gossipping and laughing. One of the girls pulled up a random guy’s instagram profile. He made hilarious workout, or should I say “twerkout” videos, and we spent the next hour laughing until we cried.
Later on, when Kay joined us, she revealed that she met a guy. *gasp* Little did we know, it was the funny, buff guy who was always twerking on instagram!! The rest was history.
The next 5 years were full of non stop laughter with Dennis’ life-of-the-party & contagiously funny approach to life. He keeps us all on our toes with his show-stopper Halloween costumes and even convinced Kay to participate this year! Each year, we all die of laughter and swear nothing will ever top this year’s outfit…until next year comes around.
They are the type of people that have a million friends because the moment you meet them, they make you feel loved and welcome. You just CANNOT help but fall in love with these two. I mean, this year alone – they were guests at FIVE weddings that I photographed/attended!!
Kay & Dennis are a match made in heaven. So it’s not a surprise that everyone’s hearts were overflowing with joy when we heard that Dennis was going to pop the question!!
He planned the most epic (and emotional) proposal I have ever witnessed.
Kay’s entire family was getting together for a Christmas party & her cousin suggested they take family photos on the beach. Kay, of course, didn’t know this was just a decoy to get her all dressed up, unsuspecting of what would soon take place.
Dennis rented a gorgeous vacation house that overlooked the beach, and had her close friends and family all hiding as she walked out to the spot where they were going to take family photos.
As soon as she got to the beach, she saw rose petals on the sand and the love of her life standing there waiting for her. But Dennis wasn’t alone. No proposal would be complete without their adorable fur-baby, Bam Bam there too (all my dog parents out there understand)!!
Dennis did an amazing job planning the perfect proposal! With the help of Kay’s family and The Little Fleur Co, who created the stunning bouquets and provided additional greenery & florals for this event…it was such a gorgeous and romantic set-up.
SHE SAID YES!!!
And as you can see from the video, there wasn’t a dry eye in the house. After Kay & Dennis cried in each other’s arms, all the friends and family rushed out onto the beach to congratulate them. Then, of course..there were even MORE tears!!
It was truly an unforgettable day.
We’re all sooo happy for you, Kay & Dennis!
CONGRATULATIONS!! & Merry Christmas, everyone!!
