Jeff had very sneakily been planning on proposing to Gabrielle during their Bermuda vacation last month. Not only did she have NO idea she was going to get engaged, she had no idea that both their families would be there to celebrate with them! Surprise proposals are such fun, like little black ops with a whole team of people in on the secret. Between Jeff, Gabrielle's mum, her fathers assistant Natasha, hotel coordinator Stefania, Lara with video and us with photography, this surprise was a very organized, all hands on deck event! Its always such a privilege to capture the complete shock and wave of emotions that follow a proposal (knock on wood, they've always been positive emotions)!
Congrats to a lovely couple - it was so great to share in your special day!
