"We had planned a two week trip to the Philippines and Thailand for early November 2016 and were soooo looking forward to the adventure. We had looked at rings the month prior to their trip, and Britta thought mayyyyyybe Chris would propose in Thailand, but that it probably was a silly idea to think that Chris would bring an expensive piece of jewelry halfway across the world. Unbeknownst to her, Chris had been in contact with the hotel in Phuket a month in advance, planning a proposal on the beach with the plan of spelling out "Marry Me?" in flower petals on the sand, weather permitting. They were out exploring the temples and Buddhas on their first full day in Phuket, Britta insisting on stopping to pet all the stray Thai village cats throughout the day. It had gotten a little drizzly, and Britta's half-Jew frizz was in full force. But she had long hair, and she, in fact, didn't care. Returning to the hotel around 6 pm, Chris' palms were getting sweaty, surely because of the humidity. Chris opened the door to the hotel room, stepping in a few steps before Britta, who had multiple bags full of Thai silk shawls and other various gifts weighing down her shoulders. Before the hotel door was even able to close behind them, Chris was down on one knee, telling Britta how much he loved her and reaching into his pocket to pull out the ring (not in a case, mind you!). Britta began ugly crying like only she can, mascara (and probably snot) running down her face as she yelled "DUH!" It all came together for Britta when she took another few steps out of the foyer and into the living room, seeing a custom-made cake and "Marry Me?" written in flower petals across the room. It was the BEST DAY EVER.
That Chris--general dentist by day, sneaky event planner by night!" 😂
With a proposal story like THAT, can you just imagine how amazing their WEDDING is going to be?! 🙌 Gaaaah, I can't wait for next spring with these two!!! Earlier today we blogged about our adventure with them in Joshua Tree last weekend and shared some of our favorites from their engagement session ... check out the link in my profile to see more!!! @brittagrayman @theradrandy #radweddings
