Ryan met Rocco many moons ago when they were both going to Rowan University and they have kept in touch ever since!  So, when Rocco confided in Ryan that he purchased an engagement ring for Kait, Ryan KNEW that I would want to be there – front and center capturing that moment!  So, for the past week, we have been planning the PROPOSAL around their upcoming trip to New York City, and with the help of A Garden Party Florist, we were able to pull everything off without a hitch!

Now, since Rocco graduated from Rowan, he has rocked the adult world and has moved his way up within one of my favorite places… Target! So, this big shot who runs his own stores just so happens to be able to thank said store for introducing him to Kait!  These two are so incredibly adorable together, and clearly meant to be!  The love and laughter and joy is so refreshing!  We could not be happier for a more perfect couple (and their fur-daughter Sage!!)

Congratulations Rocco and Kait!!  It was an honor capturing this moment in your unbreakable love story! <3 xoRocco-Kait-New-York-City-Battery-Park-Proposal-Surprise-0001 Rocco-Kait-New-York-City-Battery-Park-Proposal-Surprise-0004 Rocco-Kait-New-York-City-Battery-Park-Proposal-Surprise-0006 Rocco-Kait-New-York-City-Battery-Park-Proposal-Surprise-0009 Rocco-Kait-New-York-City-Battery-Park-Proposal-Surprise-0010 So, funny story… as Rocco and Kait are walking up, Kait was thinking “Awh…thats sad”… Why you may ask?  Well, when she saw the flower petals, she thought that there was a memorial set up for someone who died… Well, that is until she realized the photos were of the two of them!Rocco-Kait-New-York-City-Battery-Park-Proposal-Surprise-0012 Rocco pointing to a burlap scroll that was placed out, from their pup Sage…Rocco-Kait-New-York-City-Battery-Park-Proposal-Surprise-0017 Rocco-Kait-New-York-City-Battery-Park-Proposal-Surprise-0018 The scroll read “Will you marry my Dad?
