So I proposed yesterday! I got my sister who is a photographer to come up for the weekend, under the guise of taking some photos for us. I got my sister to tell both of us to dress up and that we would be heading to the beach for golden hour (when the sun is great for photographs).
She had no idea.
We went to the beach, and my sister took a bunch of pictures of us individually to get a sense of the lighting as we waited on the sun to do it’s thing. My sister got my fiancee to turn around, facing away from us, and I walked up, tapped her on the shoulder and said “I wrote a letter I want to read to you”. She started crying as I pulled it out of my pocket. I read it to her, got down on one knee and asked her to marry me. She said yes!
She was totally surprised and had no idea I was planning any of this! It was a great moment.
Thank you for everyone who helped me refine the plan!
