surprise wedding in hawaii
these are my friends J & L.
L thought she was going to get engaged and that J was going to propose in hawaii. for a few months J secretly planned a wedding. he found the resort and set up the ceremony. he got his best friend and sister to buy the dress and shoes. he asked her mom and brother for permission and for their attendance. hired the photographer, the videographer, the reception... ALL OF IT.
L was definitely surprised. there was quite a bit of crying as she realized her brother was there to walk her down the aisle. her mother was there when she arrived at the gazebo, as well as her 2 of her best friends. she truly didn't know we all flew in for her special day.
it doesn't get more storybook than this...
as for a fun anecdote, the week before she dropped him a huge obvious reference that he should marry her. his response had been, "baby, you just added 6 months more wait." ooops. :)
