KAYLA + STEPHEN

He planned the proposal with the bride’s twin sister

Stephen spent weeks plotting with my twin sister, Marcela, and friends to plan the perfect proposal and surprise engagement party! My friend Sana told me she was throwing her boyfriend a birthday dinner at The Crescent Club. Sana, Marcela, and I all got ready at Marcela’s apartment, where she did our makeup and hair for the alleged event. Marcela is a talented makeup artist so it was normal for her to do my glam for events. Stephen was to meet us at Marcela’s apartment which he had never been to. He called me to say he was dropped off behind Marcela’s apartment and he needed us to let him in. There is a park behind Marcela’s apartment and when we found him he was waiting on a bridge. At this point I realized what was happening and grabbed his arms because I was shaking! The moments after that are kind of a blur, but I know he asked me to marry him (making me the happiest woman in the world) and I had a gorgeous ring on my finger! After that he and my friends led me to the Crescent Club where our closest friends and family were waiting to congratulate us! Side-note, LSU had also just beat Bama. Geaux Tigers! The night could not have been more perfect.
