Climbing and chasing waterfalls while the sun sets behind the mountain and the snow falls in the river. Chatting with locals while we sip our coffee and head out for the next adventure. Morning coffee and reading the newspaper together, the cool fall breeze blowing through the window as you pour yourself another cup. Rose and fireflies dancing in the spiderwebs. Talking for hours and dozing off with the tv on. The record skips a few times and we pick a new song to fall asleep to.

But having been with Kholt for many years, she knew it was coming soon, and wanted to make sure her perfect intimate elopement was planned with plenty of time TO PLAN! hehe…”

…Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE SIMPLE PROPOSALS. But before I stuck my head full of ideas into places it shouldn’t be, I asked him if he would like any wine, or a blanket laid out for the two of them to celebrate afterwards. We talked a little bit more, and then a little more, and then a little more, before I heard the magic words from this groom to be: “Kayla, I trust whatever you think will look great, I know it will!”.
