how they asked: Washington, D.C is an annual visit for us during the cherry blossom festival. What a perfect time and place to “pop the question.” We went about our normal visit for the first half of the day, doing all the site seeing. During the evening hours, i surprised her by telling her we were getting professional photos taken around DC at some of our favorite spots. Meanwhile, i am anxiously shaking during each pose because she has no idea what is about to happen. As we made our way to the Tidal Basin area, i had her sit on a bench and watch a small video i put together with pictures, quotes, and music that have strong meaning to us. At this point, she had an idea something was up. When the video ended, i got down on one knee and asked the most BEAutiful woman in the world, the love of my life, Kaitlyn, if she would spend the rest of her life with me. She said, YES!
