Surprise Wedding and Engagement Proposal. Anthony Proposes to Christina in a Mock Courtroom Trial – Engagement Photos by New Jersey Wedding Photographer Josh Wong Photography
This may have been one of the most unique ideas that I’ve come across in terms of marriage proposals. The idea is based on a mock courtroom trial secretly geared towards Christina who is currently interning and studying to be a lawyer. Due to the sensitive nature of our country’s court system, you are generally not allowed to bring any recording equipment into the rooms so I needed to get a judge ordered injunction in order to have access to the courtroom with my camera gear.
The mock trial was based on a civil case with Christina acting as a sworn-in witness. I was on hand as a news photojournalist for the WSJ. The judge (which I was not allowed to photograph) would instruct Christina to get sworn in and take a seat on the witness stand. After some questions from the counsel, she was handed a letter to read. Little did she know that the letter was from her boyfriend Anthony proclaiming his love for her. At this point, Anthony entered the courtroom from the main entrance to watch her finish reading the letter. Christina didn’t realize that Anthony was standing there until she finished reading the letter and looked up. She noticed Anthony was right there and couldn’t believe her eyes. The rest is ….. well at this point … was up to Anthony. Congrats you two! Thanks for having me be a part of these memorable moments. Below is your montage.
