Jake + Milena: Leu Gardens Proposal // Orlando, FL

Jake + Milena: Leu Gardens Proposal // www.kristalajara.com

I had the wonderful pleasure of meeting Jake and Milena individually while working at Walt Disney World several years ago. Milena and I worked together a few shifts a week so I got to hear all the hot gossip about the cute new guy! And as luck should have it, Jake sought me out to do a few head shots for him, so I also got to hear all the hot gossip about a certain gorgeous blonde. It is so incredible to watch a young couple grow into the beautiful relationship they have today. So when Jake contacted me about organizing a secret proposal in Orlando, I was giddy with joy! Proposals are quite possibly my favorite moments to capture, also very nerve wracking for me too! However, Jake had an impossibly sweet plan already perfectly laid out.

Jake invited Milena for an afternoon stroll on the grounds of the Harry P. Leu Gardens, where they spent their first date, as well as many others. While I was hiding out behind the bushes, Jake played a few songs on his guitar as they enjoyed the perfect Florida weather. Finally came the moment, Jake began playing a new song, one he had written just for Milena. Next he dropped to one knee and pulled out the ring, I can't say what all he said next, but it brought tears of joy to Milena's face. Once she had a moment to let it all sink in I came out of hiding and we hugged, jumped up and down and squealed a bit! Then we were able to catch our breath and finish their session. Best wishes for the future my darlings, you are so lucky and lovely!
