Devin & Abby | The Engagement

How do you pull off a surprise for the person you tell everything to? Well, it's no easy task, I can tell you that. Somehow I did managed to keep my lips zipped and help Devin execute the sweetest proposal to his beautiful girlfriend and my best friend, Abby.

They say, "when ya know, ya know." Well, in this case it couldn't be more true. I know that Devin and Abby are perfect for each other. So perfect that when I got the text saying "Hey Julia can you do me a favor," I nearly screamed with excitement!

So, on Friday, December 15, 2017 Abby and her sister, Brooke, arrived in downtown Pittsburgh to do a little Christmas shopping. With talk of a grand Christmas tree and twinkling lights, Brooke lured Abby to PPG Place for a picture before their shopping commenced. It was easy for Devin to blend in with the hustle and bustle ice-skaters and shoppers in the plaza. As Abby stood for a picture in front of the spectacular tree, he approached and got down on one knee. The word surprised doesn't even begin to cover her reaction to Devin in Pittsburgh, with a ring in hand. The most important detail of all is that beneath the twinkling lights of the Christmas tree, she said YES!

Like a scene out of a romantic Christmas movie, a light snow began to fall just after the ring was placed on her finger and they sealed the deal with a kiss.

Devin, thank you for asking us to a part of this special moment in your lives. We were honored to capture this memory that you will cherish forever.

Congratulations once again, Devin and Abby! We could not be happier for you.


XO, Julia and Nolan
