Matt and Sara – Dusty Blue Whimsical Surprise Proposal Styled Shoot in Paris, ON

Be sure to head on over to Knotsvilla Blog today to see our whimsical, dusty blue, intimate, real SURPRISE proposal styled session that took place in Paris, ON at the Arlington Hotel in their lovely event space!! We have been waiting so long to be able to share this with all of you!!

Matt planned out the most beautiful proposal for his girlfriend, SPOILER ALERT – now fiancee, Sara! That’s right ladies and gents – this is one of those “she said YES” stories! Sara appeared to be in complete shock and at a loss for words for what felt like a good minute, as Matt stood there holding a beautifully framed watercolour sign in front of her. The sign said – “Sara, will you be my last girlfriend ever? love Matt.” After realizing that she hadn’t just been dressed up and dolled up for a styled shoot where they were “just modelling for us as the bridal couple”, but that she was actually, really, truly being proposed to… with a smile on her face and tears in her eyes she said YES!! Check out some of the adorable details Matt helped us put together all about their relationship in the photos below! It was SO sweet!



WOW. How sweet is Matt, am I right? Also, would you believe these two have never modelled for a shoot before? They rocked it. I am so excited for their wedding that I now get to shoot in November!

Congrats you two and happy planning!!
