Captured by Anna of Anna Grace Photography, we thought we’d let these beautiful images tell the story of Vanessa and Jonathan’s wedding day. Instead, the story that we’ll be sharing is all about their Cape Cod proposal!
Vanessa and Jonathan always spend the Fourth of July week in New England, where Vanessa is originally from. Jonathan decided to propose on July 4th, her favorite holiday. It was an overcast morning in Cape Cod and Jonathan was eager to propose before it started pouring. He knew the only way to get Vanessa to wake up early while on vacation was breakfast. Since they were a little early for their “reservation,” they took a detour to Chatham Lighthouse Beach. To Vanessa’s surprise, Jonathan got down on one knee and said “My favorite Cape Cod memory is when I ask you to be my wife, will you marry me?” To which she responded, “Is this really happening right now?!? Yes of course!” They returned to the car, on cloud 9, when Jonathan gave the bad news that there was no breakfast reservation. However, to her surprise, when they returned to Vanessa’s dad’s house they were greeted by close friends and family that traveled near and far for a backyard barbecue and a day full of celebrating!
