Seattle Ballroom Proposal

Jun

18

Emily & Joe’s Seattle Ballroom Proposal was not an easy one to organize but worth EVERY effort. Oh, boy, did Joe give this his everything. Originally, We had planned on a hot air balloon proposal. He was going to propose as the balloon was inflated before they took off. However, the Seattle weather was not working in our favor that day for a balloon ride so their pilot had to cancel.

Joe already had a backup plan in place. Emily and him met ballroom dancing and it is a very special part of their relationship. They were here for a little trip from out of state and he found Century Ballroom! I can’t recall if they had commpeted there, or he just knew they had a beautiful ballroom…but right outside the ballroom, is a bar. He told Emily, they were just going for drinks at this bar. He had called ahead of time to organize with the ballroom if he could pretend to “sneak in” with her to dance and propose. They even set up a beautiful champagne table for them they brought in as soon as he was done proposing.

I hid up in the rafters. Set my flash up discretely and kept my flash remote off until he was on his knee. Then, I popped it on and fired away! It was so beautiful!

They were at drinks then he tells her “Let’s see if the door is open?!” “Snuck” her in and played a little music and they danced before he proposed. She was so surprised! I stood and waved from the rafters as they toasted champagne then came down for a few photos.

THAT RINGGGG. Good job, Joe. Congratulations, Joe & Emily! I loved documenting your special day before the big day!!!
