I am so excited to share that Thomas and I got engaged in Miami in early November! It’s been such a special time for both of us! With the holiday craziness I didn’t get a chance to post about our engagement on here. I wanted to share a few engagement details and photos with you!
Thomas flew me to Miami the first weekend of November. We checked into my favorite hotel; Soho Beach House. It was soooo nice to have a change of scenery and stick our toes in the sand. We relaxed the first day and ordered room service – their food is the absolute BEST. The second day is a bit of a blur now haha… we hung by the pool, and then that evening right before dinner, Thomas led me to the beach where he proposed! He had my favorite photographer hiding behind a beach stand capturing our special moment. I was in shock, and couldn’t stop smiling. Having this set of photos to capture that joy right during and after the proposal is truly priceless! After the proposal we took it all in, and then got ready for dinner at my favorite restaurant; Casa Tua.
Engagement Outfit Details
I packed a ton of white outfits for our weekend, knowing that something was up if we were flying to Miami on a whim! We had talked about a ring design together months prior, so luckily he knew exactly what shape and style I liked. This is something I suggest all couples discuss beforehand because you wear your engagement ring everyday and it’s a huge investment, so you want to be absolutely in love with it! I showed him photos of rings I loved (Amal Clooney’s was my #1 inspo) and he had it made from there.
The style I ended up going with was an emerald cut diamond with tapered baguettes on each side. Classic and timeless! The outfit I wore was a two piece set I had sitting in my closet for years from Zimmermann. All of their pieces are special, intricate and feminine. While the exact outfit I’m wearing has since sold out, I’ve linked similar options below!
Our photographer, Bailey Ann, was so sweet and made us feel so comfortable. She snapped a ton of photos of us just being natural and elated. She is a genius when it comes to capturing those beautiful, in-between, organic moments! I was smiling ear to ear and in shock/high on adrenaline the entire time. Minutes before Thomas proposed, a hurricane was actually moving in on us, so he only had a small window (about 20 minutes) until it started to downpour!
I love the moodiness and clouds that are behind us in these photos! The impending hurricane really made the pictures that much more gorgeous and ironically enough, the lighting was perfect (not too bright/not too dark.) Once it started raining, we ran up to our room and danced on the balcony and bed. My best friend had martinis sent up to our room waiting for us and Thomas had a huge bouquet of white roses on the nightstand.
I’m so excited about this next chapter and feel so lucky that I get to be with my soulmate! Thank you so much for your well wishes, love and excitement – we are truly over the moon!
