I had the honor of helping John surprise his bride to-be Corey with a personalized engagement. John & I share mutual friends, and I got to know him through my best girls who live in NYC. He is an awesome guy & I know first-hand that he would do anything for the people he cares about! When he reached out to me to help with a few details of his proposal, I was happy to help. Corey & John frequent Brennan’s in the Central West End when they are home in St. Louis. John planned to propose to Corey at their go-to spot, complete with a close friend secretly photographing the events. (Thanks to Aleny Garcia from AG Captures for the photos.) He had a very thoughtful “drink menu” all set which outlined many of their relationship milestones, from meeting, to falling in love, to celebratory champagne.
Corey is starting to realize what’s happening:
And she just said YES!
So much excitement for the ring:
And we pulled off the surprise! Corey’s face here is priceless!
The engagement was complete with Nigel & some Steel Drum Flavor to kick the party off as the couple’s friends arrived to help them celebrate.
Finally, Corey realizes they have a visitor! But first, champagne!
John picked out a jaw dropping platinum bypass ring with a cushion cut diamond and a pink sapphire:
Even their adorable pup got in on the party!
Best wishes on a long & loving marriage, John & Corey! We loved being a part of only the beginning of the wedding fun!
