Matt contacted me a few months ago to plan a surprise proposal in Raleigh for his girlfriend (now fiance!) and I think it’s safe to say it was a success!
When I first spoke to Matt, he told me he knew he wanted to plan a scavenger hunt to lead Caitlyn to the surprise proposal spot. The hunt took her to all of her favorite places. These places included including Starbucks, Target, and where he first asked her to be his girlfriend. The last clue led her to the JC Raulston Arboretum, where they had a picnic the night prior (to throw her off-track of course!). When she arrived, he had balloons on the path to the secret spot. Each balloon had a framed picture of them tied to the end. When she popped the balloon a little love note was written inside. Matt waited for her at the last balloon where he got down on one knee to pop the question! Caitlyn of course said yes with the biggest smile on her face! They were then met by Matt’s two sisters, who helped keep track of Caitlyn’s whereabouts throughout the scavenger hunt!
I finally popped out from behind the bushes, joined them in celebration and explained that next up was a fun photo-shoot! Don’t worry ladies- I had a brush, mirror, makeup, and hairspray in hand. The North Carolina humidity is no joke!! And I knew that she would want to look her best after she’s proposed to!
I am so glad I was able to be a part of this surprise proposal and witness so many laughs throughout this night! These two didn’t stop smiling all night! I am so happy for Caitlyn and Matt, and can’t wait to watch their love story continue to unfold!
