Surprise Marriage Proposal at Balboa Park, San Diego California

While we were visiting Ben’s sister, Sarah, and her fiance in San Diego, California, they took us to Balboa Park one evening.  While we were walking down one of the main little streets,  I spotted this couple, and just had to grab a photo!

I usually don’t blatantly take photos of strangers when they are watching me do it, but this sight was just too cute so I did it anyway and then quickly looked away and went about my business.  We all discussed how something special was about to happen for sure, but they disappeared around the corner and we forgot about them for awhile.

But, then we spotted them across a fountain area in one of the courtyards and we started watching in anticipation:)  I quickly changed to my telephoto just in case and waited as well.

First he pulled out a gift and after she unwrapped it, we deciphered that it was a set of keys.  New car?  New house?  This might be it, we thought.  Something she’s been wanting a long time…

Then it seemed they were speaking for a while and we got a little antsy waiting to see if there was more to come.  “Hurry up!”, we were all saying aloud to each other… “there has to be more than a new car or new house!” :)

And then he was on his knee!

I think that’s a Yes!!!:)

And then to complete the series, we happened upon them leaving the same way they came in… perfect!

In case you were wondering, I did speak with them afterwards to let them know I’d captured it all… and also in case you were wondering… the keys?  Those were the keys to his heart.  How sweet?! :)
