A Surprise Birthday Party Turned Surprise Engagement

Chloe + Robert |

Planning a surprise birthday party for a significant other is such an exciting way to show how much you care. Having that turn into a surprise engagement is even better! No one know this better than Chloe, who on the morning of Feb. 6, was experiencing both excitement and nervousness for the surprise birthday celebration for her boyfriend, Robert. She had been scheming and making plans with Robert’s sister and both of their families. What Chloe didn’t know was that Robert had been doing some scheming of his own!

The morning of the party, Chloe had arranged for Robert’s family to arrive at her parent’s house so she had some time to kill while they were getting settled. She thought it would be nice to take Robert to Freedom Park where they could spend some time together and enjoy each other’s company before the surprise festivities. Little did she know, but she was about to be the one to be surprised.

As the two strolled through the park, Robert stopped Chloe and pulled her into a hug. As they released, Robert got down on one knee with a ring in his hand … he had been planning a surprise proposal all along! Chloe was clearly shocked but thrilled as Robert took one of her hands in his and asked her to marry him. She was all smiles as she said “yes!” To make things even better, Robert had arranged for a surprise photographer to capture the entire intimate, special moment!

After the proposal, Robert still hadn’t let on to Chloe that he knew about the “surprise” birthday party she had been planning for him because he still had more surprises in store for her.

When they got to Chloe’s parent’s house, all of their closest friends and family had gathered not for a surprise birthday party for him but instead as a surprise engagement party!  To make the celebration complete, there was even a huge sign that read, “Bob asked… Chloe said “yes!” Everything came together wonderfully and that weekend full of surprises has now become one of the couple’s most cherished memories that they will happily look back on forever.

Congratulations to Chloe and Robert on their engagement!
