Abby and Tom | Cantigny Park Engagement | Wheaton, IL

Abby and Tom have the cutest proposal story, but first let me start by telling you how they met.  These two lovebirds met years ago when they were both in the 7th grade.  Abby instantly had the biggest crush on this tall, lanky and hilarious man.  That's how she described him.  Five years went passed and they decided to meet up at a party together.  Next thing you know, Tom and Abby were building Harry Potter Legos all night long.  I'm loving this corky couple already!  It took a bit of time before these two started dating and before you know it they were inseparable.

Tom proposed the night before they were leaving on a trip to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico.  Abby was busy getting her laundry and clothes together for their vacay when Tom mentioned that they needed to go run a quick errand.  She kept denying his request and finally Tom yelled sweetly that he had a surprise and she needed to get in the car!  A few things ran across Abby's mind, maybe they were going for margaritas, a pedicure or maybe even a massage!  She had no clue.

Tom passed all of the above while driving and they ended up in a park where they both went to college together.  Abby had bought and new camera and thought he brought her there to take some snaps, so she started looking for her camera in the car.  That's when she noticed huge pit stains down Tom's entire shirt.  She thought to herself, "Wow, he's really sweaty!"  (I almost fell out of my chair when I read this! :) They got out of the car and Abby spotted one of Tom's friend's from school (who happens to be a photographer) and said, "Hey, what's up Will!"  When she turned around Tom was on bended knee.  Will was capturing the entire proposal.  It took Abby a good 30 seconds (which felt like eternity to Tom) to answer the question!  She said YES of course!
