Jillian's Engaged!

If you follow me on Twitter, you probably know this. And if you don't, you'll be excited to to find out that my beautiful assistant, Jill, got engaged on Tuesday night. And the best part is I was in on the scheme!

Jill has the most amazing boyfriend {now fiancee!}. His name is Chris and he lives in Toledo, Ohio where he attends medical school. Jill and Chris have been dating for many years and I can attest to the fact that she was getting pretty antsy waiting for the ring and proposal :).

Chris called me a couple weeks ago and asked if I'd be in on the scheme of sending Jill on a 'site visit' to scope out a new venue. When Jill arrived at the site, with camera in hand, she was given the key to photograph the honeymoon suite. When she opened the door, there was Chris on one-knee amidst a room of candles and rose petals! In true Jill form, after Chris proposed she asked if she was still supposed to photograph the property! Now that's dedication!

Jill will now be planning her June '10 nuptials and she wants to share the process with you. She'll be guest-blogging right here and you'll get to enjoy the process with her.

Congratulations, Jill. We love you!
