Okay, so a little back story. Sean and my husband have been best friends since the fourth grade where they connected over Dragonball Z. So when Sean said he was getting ready to propose I was SO going to be there.
But Sean and Caroline live in North Carolina; how would I get across the country? It really worked out perfectly. I was shooting a wedding in Gatlinburg, TN, two hours from Asheville, NC. After a lot of planning and sneaky texting between Sean and I, we finally got everything worked out. I flew into Memphis on a Friday, picked up a wonderful friend and second shooter, Elly Hazlerig and we drove to Gatlinburg, TN, shot a wedding on Saturday, was up early on Sunday morning to drive to Asheville, NC and hiked to the spot in Dupont State Park.
When they arrived, Sean saw me and I awkwardly turned hoping Caroline wouldn’t recognize me, he starting pulling out the ring, I got in position and she said YES! (It all happened a lot slower than I just explained it).
Being a part of this felt so special to me. I loved meeting sweet Caroline for the first time and being the first to hug and congratulate them. I can’t wait to see what the Lord has in store for their marriage.
