Katelyn and Andrew's Surprise Proposal at Kirigin Cellars


There are only a few life events that are as heart pumping as a wedding and a surprise proposal is one of them. When Andrew contacted us and told us his plan to surprise Katelyn with an engagement proposal, we were excited for Andrew. Usually we get to talk to both people before photographing their day but we couldn’t with a surprise proposal so we planned and hope for a “YES!” or whatever people say in shock when the moment unfolds itself.

The secret location for the proposal took place at Kirigin Cellars, a lovely winery and wedding venue in Gilroy, California. The winery had a private area where events such as this is held along with a beautiful venue for weddings and parties. Katelyn was expecting something to go down so Andrew had to throw her off by telling her that something else was planned for the day and he employed the help of both their families. The family came early to setup to make the situation perfect and Hannah for Kirigin Cellars created a wine tasting tour for them so she wouldn’t know that it was happening.

When the moment came and Andrew was on one knees, not many words were exchange but plenty of emotions and reactions were in that moment. When she realized what was happen, shock and excitement ran through her veins. Both of their families were hiding the the building next to the proposal spot; waiting to shock her with another surprise.

She was definitely confused and surprised as the family explained the elaborate plan that they had. The families made a few heartwarming speeches and love was just bursting from the seams. The short two hour were filled with so many emotions and it is one of the most fun events to capture. We wish the best for Katelyn and Andrew and may their day be filled with the same amount of excitement and joy as the proposal date.
