Oh, how I love custom proposals. John’s Mom actually called me from Washington (where we’re from) and I was very confused, assuming it was a family matter! Come to find out, John was in Washington asking Lauren’s parents for her hand in marriage, and his Mom was helping coordinate all the lovely details for him. How sweet is that? Anyway, a few hours later, John called and asked if we could do the entire custom proposal in less than a week, so he could catch Lauren off guard. See, they were leaving to New York a few days later, and Lauren was hoping for a New York proposal.
