Jake wanted to make his proposal to the love of his life, Stephanie, would be one she would NEVER forget!
So, when Stephanie woke up on a beautiful Saturday morning expecting a normal day, Jake made sure sure she got anything but a normal Saturday!
Stephanie arrived at Jake's house on Saturday to find her sisters, who live "several hours away", sitting at the table in the kitchen! That was surprise number 1!
Her sisters then handed her an envelope that Jake had left for her. Stephanie recalls, "Jake writes me random notes enclosed in envelopes that say 'Open when you've had a bad day.' 'Open when it's sunny out'.
This envelope happened to say, "Open when it's your engagement day!". Of course Stephanie started to lose it a little bit!
Jake had planned Stephanie's entire day out, starting with manicures with her sisters, followed by a scavenger hunt!
At every stop Stephanie made there was another envelope from Jake lettering her know the next step!
When all was said and done Stephanie ended up in Jake's backyard at SUNSET; Jake was waiting for her, ring in hand!
Stephanie approached him with tears in her eyes and Jake proceeded to tell her why he waited until sunset to propose.
Stephanie's mother had passed away from cancer 7 years prior to the proposal; one thing she said to Stephanie before she passed away was, "When you look at the sunset I want you to think of me and know that I'm thinking of you".
Jake wanted to make sure Stephanie's mother was there with them to experience her daughter getting engaged!
