Guys are the best and worst planners ever. Ben knew years ago that Alison was the one and it was only a matter of time until it was official with an engagement ring. On the other hand, he inquired less than 24 hours before proposing if it was possible to capture the moment on camera. After a flurry of covert texts and emails, it was settled and everyone was in position. Alison knew something was up and had her suspicions but still couldn’t hold back the tears when Ben got down on one knee. After the excitement and flood of emotions, we walked around Canal Park in Duluth, Minnesota for a few photos to celebrate the occasion. Ben summed it up best with the quote below:
“I knew since the day I met you that you were the one, my love for you is growing stronger every day and there was never a doubt in my mind that this day would come. Slightly surprised she said YES and signed up to deal with me forever and ever but I’ll take it 😁❤️
Je t’aime Alison!”
She said YES!
Alison still has tears in her eyes.
Maya, the Golden Retriever, apparently had more exciting things on her mind than Mom and Daddy getting hitched.
Maya thought it was going to be an ordinary walk in Canal Park.
It was MUCH icier in that location than expected. We all survived. 🙂
A boy from the French Alps meets a girl from Minnesota . . . . . .
Maya asks “Will you marry my daddy?”
Maya is trying her best to understand what the heck is going on. She was a champ.
Alison has the cutest nose wrinkle!
