How We Met
We met in high school.
How He Asked
We planned a summer trip in Savannah, GA earlier this year to get away from our busy schedules. Kristyn is a double English major in secondary education at the University of AL, and I live in Auburn, AL, so we sometimes do not see each other every week. We have been together for 6 years, and the time to propose was long overdue; the time and place just needed to be right. So for the last 10 months I had been designing a ring, and organizing all aspects of our trip; to do this without her knowledge was difficult. To throw her off, I made negative comments about marriage, such as “I’m not ready” or “I don’t think it’s a good idea”. I only did this so it would be a complete surprise. It was hard to be mean sometimes, but worth the surprise. Saturday July 2nd I dropped her off at a spa. That afternoon we walked through Forsyth Park in Savannah. I told her I read online there was this tradition to toss a coin in the fountain and make a wish. She did, then when she turned and opened her eyes I was on one knee.
The Ring Cam is great because it captures the moments a photographer could not.James
