    He Popped The Question! (pictures included)

    Advertisements
    He only had 3 days with me (we're LDR) before he had to fly out to deploy. Our first morning together we decided to wander downtown Boston and then grab some lunch. As we were walking past the Boston Public Library, he spins me up a couple steps and kneels down, all in one smooth move.



    eee!

    Yes, I expected him to propose at some point during his brief visit. But I didn't know when!



    Of course I said yes. He hired photographers not only to take pics while he asked, but also to do an engagement shoot right then and there!
    This was so special to me, because he'll be downrange for most of our engagement. I was a little bummed we'd never get to have engagement pics.



    He put a lot of thought into the location. Not only is Boston Public Library absolutely gorgeous, but I read a freakish amount. It was perfect.



    These are the preview pics from the shoot, we'll get the rest soon. I cannot wait to show everyone!

    I honestly don't know how he pulled it all off. We went through a few weeks of deployment on, deployment off, leave on, leave off, leave delayed, leave off, and then to top it all off his flight into Boston got delayed (and almost cancelled) due to snow. He'd had to have the ring shipped stateside, so his buddy met him at baggage claim and slipped him the ring before he met me in our hotel room. Every step of the way he had to update the photographer as well as his accomplice. And I thought I was stressed about his visit!

    Thanks!
    Originally he was going to be here for 10 days, but after all was said and done we were glad to have gotten to see each other at all. Really makes you thankful for any time you get together.

    I heart this story, so much. What a sweet, well thought out proposal. I like that he put so much thought into it and made it a reflection of you.
