Mick + Caitlin | a New Year’s Eve proposal in Excelsior Springs!

January 1st, 2013

Oooh boy, this is a fun one. As you all are well aware this is PRIME SEASON for fresh proposals (my inbox supports this with the number of wedding photography inquiries I’ve been receiving each day since Christmas!).

Oooh boy, this is a fun one. As you all are well aware this is PRIME SEASON for fresh proposals (my inbox supports this with the number of wedding photography inquiries I’ve been receiving each day since Christmas!). New Year’s Eve was no exception! I didn’t have a wedding – having been busy shooting a couple of them on December 28th and 29th – and was instead looking forward to spending the evening with my husband Jim at the dinner theater he operates, the Paradise Playhouse Dinner Theatre in Excelsior Springs (if you haven’t gone – GO! It’s a GREAT time!), where a great party was planned. Enter Mick. He is an actor and has appeared in plays at Paradise (and will be in the upcoming show “Saving Grace” starting January 18th!), and his girlfriend Caitlin has been in a play at the theater as well as working as a server occasionally. Caitlin’s dad Cress is also the Artistic Director at the theater, so lots of ties there! Mick contacted Jim to see how he could work out proposing to Caitlin at the New Year’s Eve party. He wanted to do it on stage, but needed to get Caitlin up there as well without making her suspicious. Jim had the idea, between performers, to go up and thank the staff and actors in attendance and then hand the mic to Mick. And that’s exactly what they did! Here’s the actual proposal in pictures, as well as a couple of shots we snapped in the fresh (and still falling) snow outside of the theater! This is a fun one, guys. Congratulations, Mick and Caitlin!!

..then hands the mic to Mick, who then thanks Jim for everything at the theater (innocent enough, right?) PS, that’s Caitlin’s dad, Cress, to her right, as well as Paradise Playhouse Operations Director Angela Childers and Helen Price, House Manager.

He then thanks Caitlin and talks about how long they’ve been together…
