Jeremy + Kaitlin // surprise proposal / by meredith

Christmas Day 2015 was extra special for Jeremy and Kaitlin! Jeremy planned a surprise proposal at Grandview Drive in Peoria, IL. As I hid behind a tiny little pine tree trying my best to blend in, (I probably looked like Buddy the Elf -- gigantic and awkward) Jeremy got down on one knee and asked Kaitlin to spend the rest of forever together. She said YES...and her reaction was one of my all-time favorites. Kaitlin is one of my best friends, and I seriously love when she gets super excited about something! Her reactions are so cute :). Anywho, I get to be IN the wedding (a bridesmaid) and I am WAY excited! Yesterday we went bridal gown shopping and she said YES to the dress. Now I'm even more excited for the wedding and to see my beautiful friend as a bride!
