Brook Gets Down on One Knee

Brook and Allyson had a special vacation planned to St. Thomas – where Brook had all the plans in place to pop the question. But unfortunately Hurricane Irma hit with vengeance, and they decided to move their vacation to the West Coast.

Allyson is a big Grey’s Anatomy fan, so when Brook discovered Kerry Park (also pictured in the opening credits of Grey’s Anatomy) he knew this would be a perfect spot for his Seattle proposal.

Brook and Allyson took an uber from their hotel to the park, but unfortunately Allyson got car sick. Poor thing just wasn’t feeling good. Brook and Allyson walked around and sat down for awhile so that Allyson could get to feeling better. Once she had her wits about her again, Brook led her to the spot of the proposal. The couple had a sweet intimate moment as he popped the question and Allyson said “YES!”.

Dom Perignon and a stunning bouquet full of roses by Studio 3 Floral was waiting for them. Brook then swooped up Allyson in a Rolls Royce and headed for dinner at Canlis to celebrate.

Congrats you two! We’re so happy for you to start planning your lives together!

Thomas and Alicia Beach Proposal

The first time I talked to Thomas over the phone, I KNEW that him and Alicia had a love that was going to last. Thomas is that sweet guy who had kept every single memento from his relationship with Alicia. Alicia and Thomas met at school in California and knew right away it was meant to be! After school, Alicia moved back to the Seattle area for a job and Thomas soon followed.

There’s a small beach over near Deception Pass that Alicia’s family and friends have named “Alicia Beach.” Thomas knew immediately that he wanted to make Alicia his fiancé at this beach. But of course hiking to a beach and dropping on one knee wasn’t near enough. Thomas wanted to catalog their entire relationship. From the parking lot to the beach, four different tables were set up to document their relationship milestones including: “First Coffee”, “First Date,” “Ventura,” and “Seattle”. Each table had a chalkboard with key dates, photos, flowers and mementos from that time period.

By the time they made it to Alicia Beach, Alicia anticipated what was coming. There was a much larger chalkboard with champagne, rose petals and candles set up. Thomas dropped down on his knee for .5 seconds before Alicia said “Yes!”

The newly engaged couple celebrated with champagne and took the day to be together. Later that evening they headed to a restaurant to celebrate with their closest family and friends in Seattle.

The two wed on a beautiful November Saturday and we’re so excited for them to celebrate this huge chapter in their lives!
