Katy + Stephen’s Proposal

Stephen and Katy met in 8th grade and had been dating since their freshmen year of high school. We asked Stephen a lot of questions to help us prepare for the proposal so that we could get a feel for her style and the exact type of proposal that she would love. He wanted the setting to be intimate, just the two of them. So, we ended up deciding that it would be the perfect setting to stage the proposal at The Reata in Fort Worth, and reserved a private room for them that our team transformed into a Parisian café. Stephen told Katy they had a work dinner there, but to Katy’s sheer surprise she walked into a fully decorated room just for her, and Stephen got down on one knee and proposed! She had no idea at all that he was going to propose that night – mission successful! J Midnight in Paris played on the tv while Katy + Stephen sipped on French 75s, Jamie from Posta Bella sketched adorable photos of the couple and of her new sparkly ring. We had signage and sweets custom made for the couple that were super fun for photos. Eiffel Tower ornaments were favors that were part of the tablescape and treasures that they took home from the evening. We had Posh Floral prepare an amazing “proposal bouquet” for Katy and had Paloma’s Nest create a custom bouquet tile with their initials, that Katy will be able to use on her wedding day bouquet and cherish forever. These are just a few of the details that went into this sweet proposal.

“I could not have dreamed of a more perfect proposal. After 10 years together, I never thought Stephen would be able to pull off a surprise proposal. With the help of Kelly and Meaghan, that is exactly what they did. Words cannot express the amount of gratitude I have for them helping Stephen create one of the most memorable nights of our lives. The whole night was tailored to us with amazing attention to detail. I love that we are able to share the photos and video of the night with our family and friends. The beautiful sketches by Jamie are something that we will always have on display in our home to remind us of that night. It is a memory that I will cherish for the rest of my life!”
“Kelly and Meaghan – THANK YOU for making our night so special! Stephen was able to enjoy the night without having to worry about any of the details. You both are amazing event planners and we highly recommend you!”

“Thank you Kelly and Meaghan! Your creativity and meticulous planning helped make my proposal to Katy so memorable. The amount of detail put into setting the scene was beyond anything I could have achieved alone. Given a few examples of Katy’s preferences, you created a totally personalized atmosphere. Our constant communication leading up to the proposal allowed me to relax and focus on Katy, knowing that everything was in place. I know now that I would have been a mess if given any more responsibility! Katy and I will never forget the night of our engagement, thanks in no small part to all of your input. The photos and video have been invaluable, allowing us to share the experience with our loved ones. I could not recommend your services enough to a prospective groom!”
