It was a cold dreary day, and Kim really didn’t understand why Rob was so dead set on having some family portraits done that day all the way in Annapolis (they live in Salisbury!)….but I bet she’s glad she didn’t put up too much of a fight 😉
When we had talked about the surprise engagement proposal plan, Rob said he had a sign made up, and I thought it would be a paper sign, something I could hide in my camera bag! Little did I know that when it arrived in the mail, it was to be a beautifully painted 4′ wooden sign!
I arrived early at Quiet Waters Park, to hide the sign, and pick out a good spot for the proposal. If Rob was nervous, he didn’t show it at all! Meanwhile, there were butterflies dancing through my stomach!! When the time was right, and the space I had chosen cleared out, I had his two daughters come bring the sign out to show Kim, and it read “Will You Marry Our Dad?” #cuethetears. I can usually keep it together, but the shock, surprise, and elation that crossed Kim’s face forced more than a few tears to stream down my face!
What made this proposal extra special, is that Rob proposed with his grandmother’s ring – the one that his grandfather had proposed to his grandmother with in 1913 – exactly 100 years ago!! It was a “Mine Cut“, which is something that I have never seen before, but trust me when I say, they don’t make them like this anymore!! SO super sparkly, and just beautiful!!
Congratulations to you all!!
Much Love, ♥ tPoz
