A Marriage Proposal Story

It was late autumn when Katie and her boyfriend, Chris, had a camping trip planned. They were going to their favorite spot - a small campsite in Big Sur nestled between the mountains, redwood groves, and the Pacific ocean. By the time Katie and Chris arrived, they had just enough time to set up camp and take a stroll to the beach to catch the sunset. 

They had borrowed their friend’s GoPro and brought it along to capture a time lapse of the setting sun, or so Katie thought. They went to this perfect spot right on the cliffs, overlooking the ocean and the majestic Big Sur coastline.

After setting up the GoPro and making a few fun poses for the video, Chris pulled Katie into his arms and told her how much he loved loved her. She only knew something was up when his lip started to quiver. Right then, Chris got down on one knee and asked Katie to be his wife! She said, “YES!”
