I am so excited to share that Kelly and Mark‘s surprise candlelight proposal is featured on Style Me Pretty New York! This couple’s incredible story is one of my favorites and it was so much fun reliving it today. Check out all the sweet moments on Style Me Pretty, or read more about their fairytale of an evening below.
A warm breeze slipped through an open window, rustling softly through Kelly’s hair. Even though she was blindfolded, she could smell the richness of candles burning all around her. As her boyfriend of 6 1/2 years lead her into their NYC suite, a feeling of giddiness and anticipation completely overwhelmed her.
Mark couldn’t believe the moment was finally here! He placed Kelly in front of the beautiful scene he had so carefully planned, making his way over to the iPod dock. As music from his “Saturday Night” play list filled the room, Mark punched in a four digit code and pulled two items out of the safe. Excitement building, he finally walked over to Kelly and removed the blindfold.
The scene that filled Kelly’s eyes took her breath away. In front of her lay hundreds of candles, a table filled with her favorite flowers, and a single book created just for her. Kelly sat down and started to read. In her hands she held a love story, her love story. Tiny tears of happiness found their way to the corners of her eyes as she absorbed the heartfelt words Mark had written. Just before Kelly reached the final page, Mark took her by the hands and told her how much he loved her. A small gasp escaped Kelly’s lips as Mark got down on one knee and pulled out an engagement ring! As the man of her dreams asked her to marry him, Kelly threw her arms around him and said YES! Slipping on the ring he had hand-crafted just for her, Mark smiled. Softly kissing Kelly’s hand, he felt like the luckiest man in the world.
