Dan and Vanessa | Proposal

Dan took Vanessa to Crowder Mountain State Park in Kings Mountain, NC. Vanessa just thought they were going for a hike up the Backside Trail to the Overlook. When they got to the top, Dan gave puzzle pieces to Vanessa to put together. Each piece represented memories of their lives together. There were messages written on the back of each piece. Written on the back of the last piece was, “The moment I proposed to you” and in parenthesis, (Look Up!) and Dan was on one knee with the ring. Vanessa was ecstatic and filled with joy! She said YES!


The trail they hiked…


Dan and Vanessa always have this connection to each other. They know what the other is thinking and imitate each other in a synchronous and interactive way.


Peace and warmth.



The light was falling through the trees perfectly.


Dan and Vanessa can be very silly. 🙂


Time for a walk.


Skip away!


Here is a video with Dan and Vanessa talking about the proposal.
