Lauren and Clay

how they asked

Clay proposed at James River Winery. We had been dating for 4.5 years so I was dying for him to propose. One of my now MOHs kept telling me he’ll do it when you stop thinking about it. And the ONE date we went on in the last probably two years where I didn’t do my hair and makeup or iron my dress because I thought there was no way he would do it then…he did it. Anyway, he sat up a little table with some flowers by their giant hydrangeas. He was so nervous he could barely pour the bottle of wine they had given us into my glass. I saw a photographer and a congratulations card from the venue before he said anything. Then, he got down on one knee and I don’t think he said a word. Then he just said “So, are you gonna say yes?” So, of course I did and here we are! He had packed some sort of sandwich with lunch meat for us to eat for dinner, but neither of us could really eat. I thought the sandwiches were the cutest thing. Nothing fancy!

Special Thanks
