He had an elaborate engagement planned. They went to Hawaii for vacation over the holidays and he brought the ring. Each day of vacation that he didn’t ask she thought her intuition had been incorrect and that maybe he wasn’t proposing on this trip after all.
On New Year’s Eve they’d planned to watch fireworks, but just before midnight David concocted a scheme to get Sommer walking away from the crowd where she thought they were putting their names in a raffle (if you know Sommer this was the perfect story to get her away).
As they rounded a corner a photographer took a Polaroid of the pair and handed it to Sommer. (David had previously taken the photo of himself kneeling with the ring.) When Sommer glanced at the photo and saw it was David on one knee she was momentarily confused until she looked up and saw the real David down on his knee proposing! The fireworks made for a perfect ending to this surprise proposal.
Loved capturing your love on your one month engagement anniversary! ~Marissa & Erik
