When Jimmy contacted me to let me know he was planning to ask Sarah a “certain question” while they were in Florida visiting me and John, my response was an excited “Oh my god!!!” Sarah and I have been friends since college, and our significant others (Jimmy and John) immediately hit it off when they first met.
Jimmy wanted to propose on Anna Maria Island and we set a plan in motion. Well, our pre-planned weekend in Anna Maria happened to coincide with the tail end of the aftermath of Hurricane Hermine, which had flooded much of the island. The rain seemed relentless, but we pushed on having faith that all would work out. And “work out” it did!
The rain let up, I tricked Sarah into dressing up, and when we arrived at the Anna Maria City Pier, Sarah practically set up the proposal by asking me to take a picture of her and Jimmy. John and I photographed the whole thing, smiling as Sarah was totally taken by surprise (seriously amazing she suspected nothing and that nobody involved accidentally spilled the beans) and said YES!
Enjoy some of my favorite photos from this perfect proposal in one of my favorite spots in Florida. And congratulations Sarah & Jimmy – I’m so honored I could be involved!
