Jonnie & CECILY // PACIFIC CITY, OR // SURPRISE ENGAGEMENT

WELL... SURPRISE ENGAGEMENTS ARE NERVE RACKING!!
I HAD MET WITH JONNIE A COUPLE HOURS BEFORE CECILY SHOWED UP TO FIND THE PERFECT SPOT, BUT HE ALREADY HAD HIS HEART SET ON A PLACE BEYOND THE FENCE AND WARNING SIGNS. I HAD SAID TO HIM "WE CAN'T GO THERE, THEY HAD JUST PUT UP A SIGN ABOUT AN HOUR AGO BECAUSE OF PEOPLE FALLING OFF THE CLIFFS." HE HAD THIS LOOK OF DISAPPOINTMENT, AND PLAYED ALONG WITH FINDING AN ALTERNATIVE SPOT.... BUT THERE JUST WEREN'T ANY LIKE THE ONE HE HAD IN MIND. SO, RESPECTFULLY HE APPROACHED THE PARK RANGER ASKING IF IT WAS ILLEGAL TO CROSS THE FENCE, AND TO MY SURPRISE HE SAID NO, BUT HE JUST WANTS THOSE WHO DO TO BE EXTRA CAUTIOUS.


SO, THERE I WAS HIDING BEHIND A BUSH, INTERNALLY FREAKING OUT ABOUT ALL THE THINGS THAT COULD GO WRONG ON MY PART (WHAT IF MY CAMERA BREAKS, WHAT IF CECILY SEES ME, WHAT IF I PASS OUT BECAUSE I'VE ONLY HAD A CROISSANT 3 HOURS AGO AND JUST HIKED A SAND HILL AND AM DYING OF THIRST...). BUT NONE OF THAT HAPPENED... CECILY'S FRIENDS HAD TRICKED HER INTO THINKING THEY WERE HAVING A GIRLS DAY AT THE COAST AND A PICNIC AT THE BEACH... BUT DIDN'T TELL HER ABOUT A DIAMOND RING BEING A PART OF THEIR ADVENTURE

NEEDLESS TO SAY, EVERYTHING WAS PERFECT. LIGHT WIND, WARM WEATHER, BLUE WATER, AND A FUTURE HUSBAND AND WIFE.
