Oh boy! I'm so excited about this post. I've been keeping it a secret for a while now, and I'M SO EXCITED THE SECRET IS FINALLY OUT!!! One of my very best friends was engaged last weekend and I could not be more excited for Kelsie and James! (aka future Mr. and Mrs. Tyson)
It was one of the sweetest and one of my most favorite weekends ever!
As they were walking on North campus in Athens, a photographer walked up to James and Kelsie and told them that her couple had canceled their practice photoshoot. She then asked James and Kelsie if she could practice taking photos of them in the chapel instead...to practice her lighting and different photo shots. But James was in on it the whole time! And after saying a few sweet words to Kelsie as they were "practicing" taking pictures for the photographer's photoshoot, he dropped down on one knee and asked her to marry him!
Of course, Kels said YES!
Afterwards, a video played with pictures of them in the chapel. James and Kelsie's parents came down from the back of the chapel from where they were hiding and gave them both big hugs.
absolutely LOVE this^^
& then everyone went outside to ring the chapel bell! (it's an Athens tradition to celebrate special days and moments)
look at that ring!^^ James, you did good :)
It was SUCH a special day and a special weekend! Love this sweet couple and so happy to celebrate with them! I am blessed to call them friends and can't wait to see the awesome plans the Lord has in store for them this year.
Stay tuned for a recap of our SURPRISE ENGAGEMENT PARTY for the future Mr. And Mrs. Tyson tomorrow :)
