South Beach Florida Engagement: Stacey & Julie
In Julie and Stacey’s own words: “Sometimes in life, it’s the most ordinary moments that change your world in the most extraordinary ways. For us, that moment was meeting on the field at tryouts for the Alpha Epsilon Phi flag football team. When we met on the field for the first time, our connection was magnetic. A friendship started that day and soon it bloomed into a special bond when we were paired as big and little in our sorority. We spent the next few months together, deepening our connection each day as we shared more of ourselves than we ever expected to. As the fall became winter our friendship became a romance, and in January we shared the first of many kisses in a love that would last forever.”
Julie proposed on November 26, 2014 in Miami, Florida. She wanted an intimate proposal and to capture the moment, so she hired a photographer to hide out. She proposed by the Miami River near the condo the couple lives in, and besides acting like a nervous wreck all day, everything went perfectly. About a month before the engagement, she let the secret out to close friends and family so everyone could celebrate together at a nearby restaurant. Stacey had no idea and says it was the best night of her life.
