Macaile and Sun's Proposal with Musician Tyrone Wells
How We Met
I’ve always believed that timing is everything when it comes to finding love, but Sun proved to me that love finds a way no matter where the timing in your life may be. The day that I met Sun, my entire life changed. I always hoped the saying was true “when you know, you know” and when I met Sun, I knew. It has always been him. In the first few months of our relationship, we made it through exciting times like passing a national board exam, starting a new business, and having a partner in crime to laugh with along the way. We also made it through some pretty tough times, as Sun picked me up off the ground after I got the phone call that my father had unexpectedly passed away, and as we proved to one another that love knows no distance while I moved 1,000 miles away for fulfill a contract job assignment in Illinois.
How He Asked
On December 6, 2015, Sun flew my favorite artist, Tyrone Wells, out to Boise for a surprise proposal. One of our photographer friends asked me to do a stylized shoot that day to help build her portfolio (or so I thought!) so I looked and felt like a princess. As the shoot was nearing its end, Jamie asked if we could take a few more pictures under a beautiful rock archway that was up ahead. I rounded the corner of the arches and heard the acoustic guitar start playing. I saw Tyrone Wells before I saw Sun and to say I was confused and overwhelmed would be an understatement! When I saw the look in Sun’s eyes, I knew. I knew this was the moment I would promise him forever, and I couldn’t wait. Tyrone sang our song, “Happy as the Sun” as we laughed, cried, and got sore cheeks from smiling so much. At the end of the song, Sun got down on one knee and didn’t even finish his sentence before I said, “yes.”
When you find the person you want to spend the rest of your life with, the rest of your life can’t start soon enough.
