Jason and Riley's Surprise Proposal | Richmond, VA
She said YES!
This sweet couple met in college and started dating about 3.5 years ago - at this very hotel, The Jefferson Hotel! After casually dating for a bit, Jason introduced Riley to a huge group of people as "his girlfriend." We're fairly certain that their friends already knew that they were dating, but this was the place where Riley was specifically informed that she was his girlfriend. lol
It may not be the fairytale version that you'd expect to read on a wedding blog, but it's just so perfectly them. Riley and Jason pretty much read each other's minds. Details and specifics never really need to be discussed; they just know what the other one wants/is thinking/everything! So, Jason knew that Riley would be expecting to have the "will you be my girlfriend" conversation and decided to throw her off and just announce it to everyone! Needless to say, Riley was VERY surprised - and Jason was thrilled!
It was really quite cute.
So, a few years later, they found themselves staying in that same hotel again. Jason claimed there was a groupon deal, so they just HAD to go. The real reason is that he was planning on proposing to the love of his life. Jason knew that she would say yes, but he decided to actually ask her this time, instead of the alternative approach he took the first time around. ;)
Congratulations, you two lovebirds! We wish you a lifetime of happiness! <3
