Details On The Surprise Proposal

From Jennifer Laura Design: Ron wanted to plan a surprise proposal for his beautiful girlfriend Tiffany. He hired Kristen Curette Photography and myself to design and secretly shoot the whole thing. The kicker was that we had less than a week to pull it all together.

He wanted something beautiful and fun with hits of pink and green. This was such a fun project for such a sweet couple who really and truly love each other so much. The fact that Kristen was able to capture the upset look on Tiffany’s face (she said Ron had been dragging her around all over and she had NO IDEA what was going on, she was getting hot and frustrated!) to the pure joy a moment later is so priceless!

From Heart’s Content Events & Design:
This shoot emphasized my love for intimate, romantic weddings with an exotic twist, featuring some ornate Moroccan cultural details. Moroccan poufs, used at the reception table in the shoot, are low to the ground and create a very intimate feel to your wedding. The jewel tones used throughout the shoot is reminiscent of the lively colors and celebration more modern Moroccan weddings, and create a vivacious pop of color against the neutral beach tones in the shoot.

The Hayley Paige gown accompanied by the ornate crystal bolero was specifically selected to be a modernized version of the traditional wedding gown worn by a Moroccan bride at the end of the wedding celebration. The traditional Moroccan bride can change as much as seven times during the wedding celebration, but the last gown is often a stunning white gown accompanied with ornate and gorgeous jewelry.
