Downton Abbey Engagement!!

Green screen photo op! - Photo by Doug Goodman
Great Hair Fridays has been put on hold this week to bring you some very exciting news! 

Cori and I are getting married!! He proposed to me last Saturday at VPT's Experience inspired by Downton Abbey event. I've wanted to post this news all week but Cori and I decided to wait a couple of days before announcing our engagement online. We both felt it was important to inform our close friends and family first either in person or over the phone.

So how did it happened? Well, as part of the evening activities there was a green screen set up for guests to have their pictures taken. There were several different Downton Abbey "backdrops" to pick from. (You can see some of them here.) We were having our pictures taken when Cori ask the photographer to take one more shot. Then he dropped to one knee. What a classy guy!! He told me later that he wanted to propose at some point during the evening but didn't know when or how he was going to do it. Apparently it was the event coordinator who suggested the green screen to Cori. He was in on the big secrete!

Was I surprised you ask? Yes, you could say that!!

I'm so excited that we have photos of this and more so that someone was able to capture the moment on video! FYI - there is no sound to the video below but I think you can figure out what's is being said. :)
No wedding date set yet but I will keep you all up to date on our plans!!

Thank you to photographer Doug Goodman and to VPT for hosting such an amazing event!
