Erin and Chris
How We Met
We met on a dating website and when we finally met in person, we knew we only wanted to spend time with each other.
How He Asked
Chris had planned a day trip to Sedona to help celebrate the start of a new job and to leave behind the horrible memories of the old job. He set it up so that while we were there, we were going to get aura photos and take in the vortex environment that Sedona is known for. I didn’t think it was anything to think twice about, although we had never done a day trip during the year and a half we were together so this was something new. We woke up early and headed north to enjoy as much of our time there as possible. We spent the morning taking in the scenery before heading to the get our readings and since we arrived about 2 hours early to our appointment, we walked next door to this cute little coffee shop pub Chris stumbled upon. I ordered us some beers while he found us some seats outside. We sat there, just enjoying the moment, when Chris asked if I still wanted to get our readings. I said it didn’t matter because he hadn’t paid yet, so we could do whatever he wanted. He said ‘anything I want?!’ And while I said ‘well not anything you want’ while looking away, he had pulled the ring out of his pocket and set the box down in front of me. I didn’t think it was real, let alone actually happening. I was in complete shock. Chris got down on one knee and shouted to the whole place ‘I’m asking this girl to marry me!’. Our audience of 50 erupted in cheers and clapping. A couple who was sitting near us caught our engagement moments as they happened, including this amazing shot. I found out that Chris had spend the two weeks prior getting my entire family’s approval, including my grandmother, whom I am very close with. He captured every one of those approval moments on camera and told me all about the planning of this special day. While he didn’t know where or when he was going to do it, something in that moment told him it was time. Life changed that day in a way I never could have imagined. I couldn’t have asked for a better man to have in my life and to spend my future with. Every day I wake up thankful for him and his endless love and I honestly can’t wait to be his wife.
