I adore a well-styled proposal, and Chris pulled off just that. With the help of Picnics and Peonies, he set up a gorgeous private table on the rooftop of his apartment for his proposal to Molly.

Chris reached out to us a few weeks before his one-year anniversary with Molly with a plan to propose. The two of them seemingly lived parallel lives for years before meeting, including being next-door neighbors for a full year before crossing paths. Chris told us that he knew Molly was the one from the moment they met, and he was ready to spend the rest of his life with her. 

The plan was simple and personal – Chris would suggest drinks on their apartment building roof for their anniversary. Since it was already a day to celebrate, Molly wouldn’t suspect a thing. They would relax in their usual spot overlooking the DC skyline where Chris would propose to Molly and then take her over to a romantic dining table set up in another more secluded part of the roof for a champagne toast. 

Picnics and Peonies absolutely knocked it out of the park with a gorgeous autumn tablescape for two complete with a bottle of champagne waiting for them, along with pillar candles and blankets to keep them warm as the sun went down. Since Chris wanted the moment to be as private as possible we kept out of sight by having Greg knelt behind a nearby planter box while I scoped out the scene from the adjoining rooftop across the courtyard. 

As the sun began to set, Chris got down on one knee with the Washington Monument perfectly framed behind him. Molly was of course overjoyed, and it was a very quick “yes”. She was completely surprised by the whole thoughtful and intimate set up that Chris had pulled together for the occasion. These two were so incredibly sweet and I’m so glad we could capture these photos for them.
