Okay, don’t even get me started on this engagement session. It has been my dream for a long time to do a cozy, fall campfire session like this. When Alex & Derrek reached out to me interested in a fall campfire session, I was beyond excited!!
When I was chatting with Alex & Derrek, I got to know them both better and their incredible proposal story. Go ahead and take a read. Trust me, you do not want to miss it…
Alex & Derrek’s Proposal Story
“University sweethearts since 2009, but best friends since 2007. Alex and I have explored the world together, traveling over 150,000 miles to 6 continents and nearly 40 countries.
When deciding to propose, I felt with our nomadic, wanderlust lives, it was only fitting to propose in the air! Our song has always been “Grow Old With You”, so I thought I would put the two ideas together and coordinate with Westjet to propose on our flight to Mexico. Good thing she said yes, as it would have made for an extremely awkward flight and vacation!
We were 2 hours from the end of our flight and it was time! I met up with the flight attendants in the middle of the plane and prepared for one of the biggest moments of my life. They turned on the seatbelt sign so everyone sat down, and started to play “growing old with you” over the intercom. I walked down the aisle to Alex, singing our song to her as she looked at me with surprise. Once the song finished, the whole plane was clapping, I got down on one knee and proposed… she said YES!!!
Champagne and tears followed, and it goes down as the best flight we’ve ever had.”
