Surprise Proposal at Lake Eola Park, Downtown Orlando

December 19, 2017



Alyssa + Phillip

Lake Eola & Thornton Park, Orlando, Florida


Phillip + Alyssa’s surprise proposal was featured on 10 Amazing Orlando Wedding Proposals We Love by Orlando Date Night.

Surprise Wedding Proposal at Lake Eola & Thornton Park, Orlando: Phillip planned to surprise his lady with a ring on 12/17/17 during a trip back home to Orlando from their new life in Boston. When I heard the news, I was so excited to be on board to capture the magic! He chose the peninsula at downtown Orlando’s beautiful Lake Eola Park to propose to Alyssa- a spot they had talked about getting married at before. It had been overcast when I arrived, but the sun was glowing across the lake right when he proposed! Afterwards to capture that newly engaged glow, we explored the park and wandered over to some colorful Pulse tribute and swan themed street art by the Thornton Park fountain for their couples photo session. We even discovered the streets of Thornton Park were lined with Christmas luminaries, a lit up bicycle and a lock fence that reminded us of the love lock fences on the Paris bridge. I wish these two lovebirds the very best in their adventures in life and love as they return to Boston!
