A surprise waterfall proposal is perhaps one of the most romantic ways to ask someone to marry you and it was the way William had dreamed of asking his beautiful girlfriend Rachel to be his wife!
Now William and Rachel’s proposal story is incredibly special to us and not just because it is always a joy to be asked to play a part in such a significant moment in a person’s life. He and I are cousins and so of course this was an incredible honor to be asked to capture this moment for them to cherish forever.
Every year we head down to Alabama to celebrate the 4th of July with our family. William decided to take advantage of the fact that we would be coming down and called and let us in on his plan.
He was going to ask Rachel to spend the day with him and he had secretly planned a picnic in the woods, down by a beautiful waterfall. After they ate, the plan was to walk over to the waterfall, explore and it was there that he would pop the question!
Our plan was to hide out in a cave overlooking the waterfall and take pictures when the moment happened.
They arrived and we laid in the cave, waiting for the big moment. After eating they walked over to the waterfall as planned and after they took a few photos of themselves by the water he knelt down on one knee and asked Rachel to marry him. It was the most beautiful surprise waterfall proposal we’ve ever seen!
We stayed quiet until they left and then packed up and headed back. We kept it a secret we were there because the other part of the plan was that on their wedding day William was to give Rachel a framed picture of the proposal.
How sweet and thoughtful is that?!
Later we met up with the whole family and everyone celebrated the engagement of Rachel and William!
Congratulations guys and thank you for letting us be a part of such a beautiful moment in your lives!
