Sweet Love | Proposal: Kellianne & Daniel

I first met Daniel a few years ago at the church we both attended, and his caring character and love for Jesus beamed through him as he led the youth group and every time someone spoke to him. 

When he first introduced us to Kellianne he said, "She's beautiful... even more on the inside than the outside." And she really is!

So when he asked if I would take photos of his surprise proposal, I knew I couldn't miss out on that special moment he had planned.

Kellianne was already in the restaurant with her family, and Daniel had a bunch of his friends in on the plan. We hid with balloons, cameras and excited smiles in the back room, waiting for his song to play and then we would follow him out. 

He danced and twirled her around as Kellianne laughed. Then at the right moment, he got down on his knee and proposed. 

I can't say I heard the exact words over everyone's shouts of "She said yes!!!", but I snapped away behind my camera. I tried sooo hard not to cry, but there was no stopping these hot tears from rolling down my cheeks. It was such a sweet moment!

Kellianne's reaction was priceless. She was so overjoyed and surprised, it was contagious. There was shouts of happiness and claps throughout the entire restaurant.

Daniel and Kellianne, thank you so much for having me be part of this special day in your lives. I had so much fun documenting it.... I wish you two tons of love!!!
