Surprise Engagement

surprise engagement

Zac called me last week with a secret mission in mind. He was going to propose to his girlfriend Caroline and wanted the moment captured. Caroline had a pretty good idea that Zac was planning on proposing and thought it was going to happen while they were in America later this month but Zac really wanted to catch her by surprise so put together other plans. Being in the military, he sent me this detailed plan of how it was all going to go down at Queens Gardens.
Screen Shot 2018-10-05 at 5.18.45 PMZac’s friend Dan and I arrived early, Dan hid in the maze with the music and champagne and I pretended to be a bird photographer. They arrived, walking down the path in front of the maze and as soon as Zac said on cue the words “this is the best” Dan started playing one of their favorite songs… Zac then dropped to one knee and proposed pulling out the most incredible diamond ring to seal the deal. She said YES!!
To say Caroline was surprised is an understatement. She didn’t even remember saying yes. It’s wonderful they have these images to re-live the moment over and over again. Being part of this mission was super cool and so much fun!
The craziest part of this story is on the morning of the scheduled day of the proposal Caroline sent Zac a picture of this exact location saying she wanted to go there to use her new camera…. These two certainly are on the same page.
If want to see all the magic unfold pop over to the blog –
Congratulations Zac and Caroline!!! I hope your life together is full of happy surprises like this one.

This particular flower beds seeds came as a gift from @honeyatkinson. Best gift ever!!! Megan :)

  • Kicking off the new year is the perfect time to focus on what you need to get you where you want to be. Your point of difference is that you are YOU!
