A Surprise Holiday Proposal in Emerald Green and Gold

It’s hard to come up with a more romantic time to get engaged than the holidays – everyone in their festive best, trees and candlelight everywhere – and Brock took things to the next level by proposing to Megan while they posed as bride and groom for this stunning shoot at Rivercrest Farm! Megan thought they were just modeling for a holiday engagement shoot, only to be stunned when her boyfriend got down on one knee! Planner Mycha Michelle designed a picture perfect holiday proposal, complete with a stunning emerald green dress for the bride-to-be. This newlywed pair will have photos captured by Loren Jackson Photography to treasure always!

The rich color of evergreens inspired the color palette for this shoot, pairing emerald with shimmering gold for a glamorous winter palette!

Green Velvet Dress for a Holiday Engagement

The fresh white walls and wood trim at Rivercrest Farm in Dover, OH, inspired Mycha Michelle and Paper Twigs to dress it in winter greenery, twinkling lights, and green velvet – starting with that incredible staircase!

Although Megan thought they were just posing for photos, she knew something was different the vow notebook from Gold Leaf Calligraphy had a letter written to her from Brock. When Loren Jackson Photography gave her the cue to turn around, Brock had gotten down on one knee to ask her to marry him! This stunning styled shoot turned into a surprise proposal and Megan was only too happy to say yes!
