It's 6:30am. I'm squatting on a pile of rocks in a bush, waiting for Forrest and Thea to show up to Big Woods Lake. Forrest and I had planned that I would capture the proposal the night before, but a big rainstorm led him to Plan B. I had asked Forrest to walk over to the "blue bench" where he would pop the question and I would snap away.
As I'm hunched over on the rocks, I get a text from Forrest asking, "Can you see us?" I crane my neck through the weeds to take a look around without revealing my location. At that moment my heart sank because I realized that when I told him to go to the blue bench, I forgot to inform him that there were TWO blue benches.
As the photos show, they eventually made their way over to the other blue bench, he asked for her hand in marriage, and now they are less than one month away from their wedding date! I can't wait for these two to get married, and for Forrest and Thea to be our next-door neighbors! Congrats, you two!
