SHE SAID YES! - Alaina & Jimmy | A Sweet Proposal Story | Muddy's Bake Shop | Memphis Wedding Photographer
December 4, 2018
Can you picture any sweeter proposal (puns totally intended) than one in the super yummy Muddy's Bake Shop? I can't! Jimmy and Alaina are ENGAGED! This was possibly one of the most magical proposals I've ever had the joy of documenting.
Jimmy reached out to me several weeks in advance and told me his big plan. I was over the moon excited and the wait for the big day went by SO SLOW. On the day of I walked into Muddy's to see their team setting up the cupcakes in the glass case and making sure everything was perfect. Kat, the owner, and all of the team took such pride and joy in making sure this moment was perfect. I showed those behind the counter a picture of the couple and they knew exactly who the couple was. You will see their reactions in the background of some of the shots and I promise it will melt your heart. I seriously cannot say enough nice things about Muddy's. They truly made this proposal PERFECTION.
As we waited for Jimmy & Alaina to arrive, I sat in the booth with my camera hidden in my lap and ate a cupcake to blend in. (as if I needed a reason to eat a cupcake!) We all did our best to hide our excitement as they pulled into the parking lot. They walked in and headed towards the glass case that displayed the cupcakes with the best question ever "ALAINA WILL YOU MARRY ME?" Jimmy pulled Alaina in for a hug and moments later was down on a knee. There may or may not have been tears behind the camera as I captured the moment of complete surprise as Alaina responded with a big ole YES!
Everything about this day was perfect. I am beyond excited for Jimmy & Alaina and cannot wait to capture their wedding next spring. Now I'm off to Muddy's to fix my cupcake craving!
