Jane Finally Said Yes!

Saturday, April 22, 2017 Old Lyme, Connecticut



One of my best friends, Jane, got engaged this past weekend! I'm so happy for Jane and Jon, the old lovebirds that started chirping together back in 2009. I had so much fun helping Jon plan this proposal, and it turned out pretty well. The proposal took place in Old Lyme, Connecticut in a modern and luxurious Airbnb. Jane thought we (a group of six) were going away for the weekend to relax and celebrate Jon's birthday - little did she know!

As soon as Jane fell asleep the first night, the girls (Anne and Kimberly) and I started to prep for the special day - making guacamole, setting up snack platters, and putting together an endless amount of bouquets. We ended up going to bed at 3 in the morning, and waking up just under four hours later. In the morning, we started decorating outdoors, as Jon's brother (Jeff) and three of his friends (Kevin, Jon Tam, and Jiuen) arrived with music equipment to help Michael set up.

When Jon texted me telling me that Jane just woke up (around 8 in the morning), I went to their room and secretly told Jane that we had a birthday surprise for Jon, and she needed to keep him in the room for another hour. Truth is, we were all trying to keep her in that room. When everything was pretty much set up, Anne and I went to their room while they were almost ready, and waited for Jane to finish her hair and makeup. After that, we "admitted" to Jon that we had a surprise for him and they both needed to be blindfolded - but only Jane was blindfolded. I guided her down the stairs and to the "entrance" of her proposal.

Jon sang her a snippet of "Rest of My Life" with customized lyrics, while the guys harmonized along. After that, he got down on one knee, and #janefinallysaidyes!


I love you guys from the bottom of my heart!
