Chad and Krissy

How They Asked

We were spending the weekend in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. Our trip started on July 4th of last year, and we were determined to find an amazing place on the shore of Lake Superior to watch the sun setting each night. Unfortunately, the stable flies were so terrible by the water that we resorted to watching the sunset from a municipal park in Houghton, MI next to the river canal. I thought Chad was setting up his phone camera on a timer to take our picture together in front of the sunset. Little did I know, he was video recording and caught me completely by surprise with his proposal. The phone was propped up by a plastic cup and conveniently fell over as we were walking back to the picnic table.
