When I first saw that my friend’s boyfriend (who I had never met) had sent me a facebook message, I was already squealing with excitement. I had a feeling I knew what he was going to say… He asked me to get in on his plan to propose to Jace! I was SO EXCITED! Jason also asked a few other close friends to come and surprise Jace at dinner after the proposal. How thoughtful and sweet is that!?
I met Jace my freshman year at Carolina. She has always impressed me with her intelligence and dedication to all that she does. You see, this girl is no ordinary girl. She got one of the top scholarships at UNC and she went to medical school at Duke, and now she’s about to start her residency in anesthesiology. That being said, she never did have much time for guys until Jason came along! It really warms my heart to see Jace so happy. Congratulations you guys!!! : )
I got really nervous right beforehand because I wanted to make sure Jace didn’t see me because it would ruin the surprise. I wore a baseball cap with my hair tucked up under it and big sunglasses. Jason and I were texting back and forth to make sure the timing was right. I think he had my number disguised as some boy’s name in his cell phone. I hid behind some big wisteria vines in an area overlooking the terrace outside the Biltmore Estate. Here’s what I saw!
Already showing off her ring!! ; )
This was when Jace realized someone was taking pictures, but she didn’t realize it was me until I started running toward her. Here eyes about popped out of her head! I must admit I shed a few tears watching my friend experience such a happy moment. It was so touching!
Me and Jace!
You know I just HAD to get a few engagement pictures!
Look at those smiles!!!
Check out the gorgeous ring!
