We all dream of the the day we meet our special someone, the day we get engaged, and of course, the day we get married. This story is all about the incredible proposal (my now husband, Spencer) put together. He was so creative with every detail, especially the handcrafted flower wall. He mounted it with light up letters and placed it in a beautiful park, where my friends and family were hiding. So if you need ideas, I hope this gives you some inspiration. This is the best flower wall proposal and surprise engagement inspiration. It was absolutely breath-taking! If you’re new here… You can read our backstory // lovestory here!
Best Flower Wall Proposal and Engagement Inspiration
I always hinted that I wanted a big proposal with my whole family and close friends there to see. I had no idea he would make that happen! Sadly, COVID prevented us from inviting everyone… but there is a video coming soon, so my friends can feel like they were there too. Anyways, let’s get to the BIG DAY!
Proposal Day: The Beginning
The day started out with a blogger picnic (photos coming soon) with some of my best gal pals. Then my besties Nicolette (@heyniclovin – bestie / owner of Fringe with Benefits), Jenn (@jennxbradley – sweetest bestie), Carlos (@carlosbradley – master chef and photographer), Emily (@emilykimphoto – bestie and photographer), and Christine (@christineueberrhein – my soul sista and wild child) took me to the park I grew up at for a photoshoot for a “flower wall company”. I do shoots all the time for new businesses so this is extremely believable. I mean, I can’t say no to cute content for the gram, right? Little did I know… Spencer had made the best flower wall proposal for our engagement himself, there was no company AT ALL.
We started shooting our first outfits and let me tell you, the photos are SO DARN CUTE.
The Setup of the Best Flower Wall Proposal
When it was time for our outfit change, Nicolette brought me into the changing tent and helped me get dressed. She also got into a new outfit, and we were gossiping the whole time… while Christine and Jenn made cute girly noises as they were taking photos (it all makes sense now). Little did I know, there was a mad scramble to get about 20 people from behind trees and a flurry of Spencer’s brothers setting up the sign.
The Moment of Truth
As I exited the changing tent, I saw my friends and family standing around me. I honestly thought I died and I was seeing everyone I loved. It was eerie. I turned towards the flower wall… and there he was. There were now lights on it, that said MARRY ME. I said “hi everyone”, and everyone laughed and said “hi”. There was lots of shaking and crying and frankly, I think I blacked out. I was in love with how he created the best flower wall proposal and engagement.
Then, I started walking towards him and when I got there he said a few things (sorry, that’s a secret), and he got down on one knee. He opened the ring box, and it was the most beautiful ring. Of course, I said yes. Everyone clapped and cheered and my heart was so full. SO FULL. It was a dream.
Since it was at our local park… Spencer’s three brothers brought out food and wine and served everyone. They are the best. We all chatted and yes, kept our distance. It was magical. I can’t say it enough. Magic happened that day. After, a small group of us went to dinner in my hometown and had a five course dinner that I will also never forget. Gosh, I wish you were all there to see this. It was perfect. It was my dream engagement. <3

The Celebration and After-Party
Thank you to all the amazing family and friends… Especially the ones who made it all happen. I love you with all of my heart.
