When I first talked with Paul when he was planning his Surprise Marriage Proposal in downtown Greenville,SC I couldn’t wait to be a part of it. Even with as many weddings as we have been a part of, we usually hear the story of how he proposed at the initial consultation or at the latest the engagement session. I always enjoy hearing that story, but to actually be there and witness it is a whole other level of cool. I have to give Paul props as he had everything planned down to the minute and truly had a vision for what he wanted. And it was executed to perfection.
Just as he had planned they began their walk across Liberty Bridge in Falls Park around 4:30 in the afternoon. He even sent me a photo of what he would be wearing so I could spot them from afar. It was like my own game of Where’s Waldo on a crowded afternoon at the park. As they made their way across the bridge I grabbed some candid shots. I have to admit my heart was pounding a little as I was excited for him and couldn’t wait to capture this moment. As they reached the other side of the bridge I slipped into the background as not to give it away and…boom. He got down on one knee and proposed. And….she said yes!
We then proceeded to stroll though the park and take some engagement photos before these two were off to celebrate with friends and family that evening in downtown Greenville. It was truly an awesome experience to witness much less to capture it. Excited for these guys and their future! Thanks to Paul and Meredith for letting me capture this huge moment in their lives!
