One year ago, my brother got down on one knee, to the girl of his dreams, and asked her to spend forever with him. The entire family was probably just as excited (and nervous) as he was! Months of planning and preparing was worth it all when one simple word was spoken… “YES”!
TJ planned a date for the two of them… afternoon tea at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort (one of Cassidy’s favorite things to do.) During their tea, the family was getting everything set up for him to pop the question. An afternoon Florida storm was rolling in and all of a sudden we are scrambling to figure out a “Plan B” just in case. I’m texting TJ telling him about the other plan in case his first option was going to get rained out. He went to the bathroom to call me… he decided to stall and wait until the rain passed. It felt like forever, but I think 30 min later the rain passed and he took her for a walk around the property. They arrived at a little location that was set up with flowers and a picture of the two of them from when they were little (yes we’ve known Cassidy her whole life!!!) There was also a tiny box with a glass slipper inside that said “Marry me?” As soon as she finished reading it and realized what was going on… TJ got down on one knee. They both claim they can’t remember a word he said, but somewhere in there he ask her to be his wife. 🙂 She said YES and then we all flooded them with screams, cheers and hugs. Cassidy was in COMPLETE shock and couldn’t believe what just happened and that we were all there.
The moments with her Daddy are to DIE for… I still tear up a year later looking at these photos. I’ve never seen my brother so happy or smile as much as he did that night. I am so proud of him and absolutely adore the woman he chose.
A beautiful reception was set up by the AMAZING team at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort for us to enjoy and continue the celebration. It truly was a magical night!
In a little less than 4 months they will say “I DO” and we can’t wait!
I love you TJ & Cassidy. Happy 1 year from your Engagement. xoxo
