Slay Displays/ Location 215

This past Thursday was an unforgettable day when we all got to celebrate relaunch and rebrand of Slay Displays. Networking, meeting new people and making amazing connections - what can be better? Funny how I’ve been asking everyone how they met Julia.. and was happy to share my story: we first met at a styled shoot at Anthony Wayne House, a project I got interested in because I saw her name and wanted to meet another russian- speaking vendor in the industry! I got to meet her and her husband and got amazed by how much effort and hard work they put into their craft. All of their flowers, giant letters and backdrops are made by hand… it’s clear they pour all their energy and soul into what they do and always come up with creative ways to wow! Their letters are definitely show stoppers that would be an awesome addition to a surprise proposal, wedding, family celebrations and any other event.

It was awesome to meet new amazing friendors I ‘ve heard of before : Frost 321 are so unique and so cool! While we were filming them, I was literally mesmerized by the way their cocktails are made. Watching them do their magic made me think of summer rooftop parties and how great it would be to have them there. It’s literally entertainment + frozen tasty cocktails ( 2 in 1).

Spruce St Harbor Park Surprise Proposal

Hammocks, showers and surprise proposals season :) Shreedip and Samridhi are engaged! 🥂💍
This hammock at Spruce St Harbor Park is where they had their first date and where she said yes! We all know how unpredictable weather is here in Philly in summer… A few moments before Shreedip was about to ask Sam to marry him, it started to downpour and they got soaking wet. Good thing Hilton hotel was right there where they hid for a few minutes before proceeding. He asked, she said yes! Sam was gleaming and absolutely loved her ring. Their family came to congratulate them on their engagement and we all enjoyed a nice calm evening after the storm and took some romantic photos along the water and in the park.

Happy engagement!

Adventure Aquarium Surprise Proposal | Camden Waterfront & Race St Pier Engagement

Prem surprised Sarah with a shiny heart shaped ring and VIP tour around Adventure Aquarium in Camden, NJ. The coolest part of this afternoon: divers with the sweetest sign “Will you marry me?”…. and Sarah’s reaction of course! :)

Congratulations on your engagement!

Thank you to Aquarium’s staff for being super caring and helpful.


Surprise Proposal at Morris Arboretum | Philadelphia Engagement

She said yes!

👩‍❤️‍💋‍👨Fresh! She said yes!!! Saturday morning in misty Morris Arboretum of the University of Pennsylvania :) The sweeeeetest couple ever! The way Brianna looks at Joe blows my mind 💍😍🤗
#surpriseproposal #shesaidyes #FutureMrsKnellinger

The funniest part is that obviously Brianna didn’t have a clue while Joe coordinated every detail with me. On the day of proposal Morris Arboretum was crowded so we had to take a shuttle to the upper level. What do you think? Of course we happened to be on the same bus and Joe and I had to pretend nothing was happening. It was drizzling and they finally walked to Rose Garden when Joe got on his knee and asked Brianna to marry him. She had the sweetest reaction ever. You know the rest :) Tons of questions, from how he picked the best ring to who else knows….

They have been together for a few years and share so much together. Their little baby princess is so!!! adorable. We jokingly mentioned that she might be a flower girl for their wedding in a couple years from now :) I am so happy that I met these young, beautiful, candid lovebirds.

Happy engagement! Can’t wait to capture your emotions on your wedding day.

Sean + Caitlin | Rittenhouse Square Surprise Proposal

When I was heading downtown on a bright sunny Saturday morning to photograph a surprise proposal, I had a feeling it's going to be nice but I didn't expect it to be that emotional and vibrant. Guys chose Rittenhouse Square, one of our all time favorite spots for romantic souls ( see more @ https://www.innaovsepian.com/blog/oldcity/philadelphiasurpriseproposal  for inspiration). Sean pretended he was taking a photo of Caitlin while I was hiding behind, ready to capture the most exciting moment. Then he got down on his knee and asked the most important question. Caitlin was shocked! She couldn't stop smiling and laughing... True, vibrant, strong emotions and a couple so in love with each other- I hope I managed to capture it all :) Their story is quite interesting and it proves one more time that what's meant to be is meant to be.  Those love stories with running into each other on the street after not being in touch for some time add something mysterious and it just blows my mind every time...

After a short walk around Philly, we came back to where it all started. Sean and Caitlin had a brunch reservation at iconic Parc Restaurant, a stylish french restaurant that recalls the chic brasseries of Paris. Their first date was there. Their first date as engaged couple happened there as well. I can't wait to see what future brings for this lively, beautiful, emotional couple.

Enjoy the moments! xoxo

 

John+Alexis | Philadelphia Old City Surprise Proposal

Sometimes you meet people. And they are made of light. And some sunshine, love, laugh and bright energy. Their names are Alexis and John. Two beautiful souls who recently got engaged in one of the most romantic spots in Philadelphia. John did great! He planned this surprise proposal perfectly. And, oh, that ring from "Where Philly gets engaged" .... stunning. We celebrated with a nice relaxed photo walk around Rittenhouse square and took some great photos of this sweet couple. One more time I came to a conclusion that if somebody tells you they look awkward in front of the camera, DO NOT BELIEVE THEM :)  As I am adding these images for their friends and families to see, Jack Johnson is singing his " Always better when we're together" in my headphones and I could not agree with him more :) Let it be the official soundtrack of that hot summer night when two decided to be one. 

Enjoy the memories!
