Emily and Berty's Marriage Proposal at Machu Picchu
We were hiking Machu Picchu mountain right after we saw the old city ruins. After two hours of climbing Inca stairs, we made it to the top and could see everything. It was absolutely breathtaking! Both of us were tired and sweaty but I guess that didn’t stop him from wanting to pop the question! The hike is pretty dangerous, so the guard at the top was beginning to shuffle people down the trail, and at that moment Berty decided to linger and wait until more people left the top, then he got down on one knee and asked me to marry him.
I said yes of course, and it hit me all over again when I realized he picked out the most perfect and beautiful ring! The people remaining on the mountain began clapping but all I could focus on was Berty and how much I loved him. Let’s just say it made the hike down feel like no time at all with my new fiancé.
Thanks Aidan and Ducttapethenbeer for capturing this moment for us!
