Since the holidays we have been trying to tackle a lot of wedding stuff. Although we didn’t really come close to finishing all the items on our January To Do List, we still have made some progress. We’ve tried out a bunch of rehearsal dinner locations and are considering two of them. We chose a hotel for all our out of town guests (pretty much everyone!) and we are meeting with a photographer this weekend. We have a few other projects in the works, but more on that later.
All this wedding stuff and putting together photos has made think about our trip to Wyoming and how Nathan proposed. For anyone who hasn’t heard the story, Nathan and I were in Jackson Hole, WY with my family to celebrate my parents 40th anniversary. We spent the week fishing, hiking, and generally enjoying Grand Teton National Park. Nathan had asked that we plan one day for ourselves to explore on our own, look for wildlife, and to allow him to take a gazillion photos without feeling rushed. Also, it was the perfect way to celebrate our 3 year anniversary. So I gladly planned a day for us… we took our time photographing some moose, we saw the famous Snake River overlook, we had lunch at a lodge by Jackson Lake, and then we did a walk/hike around Coulter Bay.
Little did I know that Nathan was planning to propose- he had already talked to my parents and brother about it, so I was the only one who didn’t know! So on our hike around the bay, we stopped at a bench and Nathan set up the video camera. He told me that he wanted to get a shot of us looking at the mountains and the lake, but I thought it was silly and gave him a hard time about it. Luckily he didn’t let that throw him off and he got down on one knee and proposed with the most beautiful backdrop. And he got it all on video! So now you can share in the moment 🙂
