Surprise Engagement Proposal on the Green
AJ first contacted me the beginning of last May. He was excited because he was going to be proposing to his long time girlfriend, Sam. They live a couple hours away but on June 19th, they were headed up to the University of Delaware area for work. PERFECT timing for his master plan.
AJ and Sam not only first met at the university of Delaware, they both graduated from there as well.
This would be the first time back for a visit since graduation.
He had it all planned out. I even helped with scouting out the Green at UD to make sure there wasn’t any construction going on in the area he was thinking about. Everything was beautiful there, he was excited!!
I’ve never experienced a wedding proposal other than my own so I was REALLY excited to witness this. I was so nervous that as they were walking to the location, I’d stick out like a sore thumb just sitting there with my camera staring into space. So I brought my 13 yr old son along as my “decoy”. I had the camera on him as they first walked up. It worked out perfect actually, Sam didn’t have a clue.
As soon as they got to “the” spot, AJ grabbed her hands and I knew it was GO time.
SHE SAID “YES”!!!
We even went over to Gore Hall where they had their first kiss.
Congratulations you two, I’m so excited for you!
