Here’s another one of our favorites (aside from weddings of course), SURPRISE PROPOSALS! And I just love how our groom proposed right on spring, the season that represents new and awesome beginnings. Anyway, it was such a simple and cute plan – Dan asked Alison to meet him up in this area and just when they were both crossing the bridge, he got on his knee and proposed. A beautiful moment that was captured on camera. Congratulations Dan & Alison!
Dan and Ali met in college out in Michigan and both now live in Boston. Dan is one of those guys that you cant help but smile at, he’s handsome, funny and radiantly in LOVE with Alison. The plan was for her two friends to take her out and about in the city for the day, and meet Dan along the river. The pink cherry blossoms complemented the beautiful blue water of the Charles River perfectly. Naturally, they were running late so after Dan and I briefed the plan one last time, I watched him anxiously check his phone every 5 seconds until she crossed the Arlington Street footbridge to the Esplanade. Once she arrived, he crossed the canal where he stopped on the bridge to drop to one knee. Before she knew what was happening he popped the question and gave her a beautiful diamond ring. Of course, she said yes and to celebrate we took a few fun photos along the water. Ali’s 2 best buds even stepped in for a few shots!
