HOW WE MET
HOW THEY ASKED
The proposal was a semi-surprise. Let me explain – we had already talked about future plans (including marriage) in 2019. We knew we wanted to get married in the next couple years in order to line up with some of our other life goals. We had planned this getaway trip to Joshua Tree in a secluded yurt. I thought it would be cool to “surprise” her during this trip since we preferred a more intimate experience (discussed beforehand). She recently took interest in long-term exposure photos of stars so I thought it would be cool to do it under the stars.During one of the nights at Joshua Tree, we drove around looking for an even more secluded area with no lights to take photos. We eventually found a nice spot and took some amazing photos of the Milky Way. As she was busy cleaning up the equipment, I seized the moment and got on my knees, sweating profusely mind you, and waited for her to turn around. When she did, I then proceeded to give my awesome speech (which I don’t recall at this point) and asked for her hand. One of my favorite memories from that trip was when I had to get down on my knees another twenty times so she could get a perfect engagement photo using a tripod.
