Brad + Kayla | surprise airport engagement / by meredith

My fiance, Ben, and I met Brad at the airport to capture photos and video of his surprise engagement to his beautiful girlfriend, Kayla.  Brad has been a good friend over the past couple years, so it was a pleasure to get to witness his surprise proposal first-hand.  Sitting down at the airport waiting for Kayla's flight to arrive, we began discussing how Brad had met Kayla when they were children and how their families have been life-long friends.  Brad's eyes lit up as he talked about Kayla and it was so precious to see his excitement.

Kayla was flying in to visit Brad for the weekend and was expecting to see Brad waiting for her.  As Ben and I were hiding, Brad waited in the middle of the airport with a bright yellow sign he had made with Kayla's first name.  When he saw Kayla, he was going to flip the sign around and it then would say Kayla's first name and his last name (Kolowski) with a question mark.  As people stepped off the plane, I could tell that Brad's heart was racing.  He kept giving big nervous smiles in our direction, and then he saw Kayla.  As she walked toward him, everyone else in the airport stopped and watched.  Brad flipped the sign around and I saw Kayla's heart melt when she read, Kayla Kolowski?   Her knees buckled as he got down on one knee and proposed.  It was absolutely perfect.  I am beyond excited to watch my friend in his life long journey with Kayla!Surprise Airport Engagement Brad and KaylaSurprise Airport Engagement Brad and KaylaSurprise Airport Engagement Brad and KaylaSurprise Airport Engagement Brad and KaylaSurprise Airport Engagement Brad and KaylaSurprise Airport Engagement Brad and KaylaSurprise Airport Engagement Brad and Kayla, Peoria AirportSurprise Airport Engagement Brad and Kayla, Peoria AirportSurprise Airport Engagement Brad and Kayla, Peoria AirportSurprise Airport Engagement Brad and Kayla, Peoria AirportSurprise Airport Engagement Brad and Kayla, Peoria AirportSurprise Airport Engagement Brad and Kayla, Peoria AirportSurprise Airport Engagement Brad and Kayla, Peoria AirportSurprise Airport Engagement Brad and Kayla, Peoria AirportSurprise Airport Engagement Brad and Kayla, Peoria AirportTo view Ben's video of the surprise airport engagement, click the following link:
