One of the most memorable moment in a person’s life is when their significant other asks them for their hand in marriage. It’s something that needs to be documented but the thing is, it can get pretty tricky to capture moments like these that requires the element of surprise. But look how our guy, Hunter, pulled off such an amazing proposal that was secretly photographed from afar. You can see the bits that led up to the proposal up to the awaited question, all of which are preciously sweet. I love how this couple is naturally romantic and picture perfect even on candid camera. Congratulations Kelti & Hunter!
I am incredibly thankful for the man you are, Hunter. You already surpass everything I ever hoped, dreamed, and prayed for! I absolutely CANNOT wait to be your wife! – Kelti
Normally I’m a terrible story teller… mostly I just add in too many details, but here’s the gist of it! I met Hunter for dinner at Sharky’s Thursday night after work, where he told me we would be leaving the next morning on a surprise trip for our 4 year anniversary! I needed to pack a fancy dress, nice dinner outfit, and a swim suit (as I down my man sized burrito…). I had no idea where we were going the whole road trip until we actually turned a corner that had a sign reading Horseshoe Bay! We showed up to two condos that his brother in law’s family own, and we each got ready for dinner. We pull up to the Horseshoe Bay Yacht Club for our dinner reservations, when Hunter tells me we’re a little early. So we decide to explore the resort! I spot a glimpse of the water and run for it, but he grabs my hand and says “no let’s go this way, it looks better“. We walk around and through two buildings and find ourselves on a pier looking out at the bay… BEAUTIFUL view! Hunter is hugging me from behind as we looked out over the water, I start to turn around to hug him back, and when I did, he was down on one knee holding the most beautiful ring in his hands! And of course, I said YES!
We were spoiled at dinner with champagne and a congratulatory chocolate cake dessert! Then Hunter told me he had one more surprise. He made me close my eyes in the car after dinner which caused motion sickness (hah) but that went away very quickly because I opened my eyes to a room full of some of my closest friends! We spent the rest of the weekend with our friends at the resort- tennis for the boys, beach and pool time for the girls, followed by dinner and hot tubbing, and a trip to the Bluebonnet Cafe on Sunday morning. It was beautiful, unforgettable, and by far the best surprise EVER!
