How He Asked

I took Heather hiking near Cloudcroft, NM in the Sacramento Mountains where my family vacations every summer. Near the end of the hike, we stopped at a small wooden bench off the trail to take in the spectacular view of the White Sands National Monument in the vast valley below us.

It was there that I proclaimed my love for Heather, told her that I’ve spoken with God and her father asking for permission, and that I want to spend the rest of my life with her. She returned with a surprised and overjoyed ‘yes.’ We’re both looking forward to a lifelong, happy marriage.
I was able to capture the wonderful moments of joy and happy tears surrounding our proposal. -Matthew
