Dan and Vanessa | Proposal

Thursday, July 30th, 2009

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.

1800′s Engagement Ring

Wednesday, July 29th, 2009

Dan proposed to Vanessa with a family heirloom. He proposed with his great grandmother’s engagement ring from the 1800’s! How special is that?! It’s a very simple yet really classy and fun design.

It still had the original ring box!

I sat it on top of it’s beautiful blue box for a few pictures.

There is an amazing design on the sides! I had to get a close-up. It kind of reminds me of a key hole.

Marissa had an idea to use a sweetheart candy.

I had a fun idea with candy too. 🙂

I had to, of course, include the French flag for Vanessa.
