How He Asked

Elise and I got engaged on the beach in front of Hotel del Coronado, in California. We had stayed at the hotel two and a half years ago, and both had an idea then that we would spend the rest of our lives together. I surprised Elise with an “early anniversary trip” and kept the destination a complete secret. That evening, I proposed on the beach and Elise was in shock! Before proposing, I asked a couple if they could take a picture of the two of us before dropping to one knee-turns out they were celebrating their 16th anniversary.
