Grant and Kenzie | The Proposal

The morning of the day that Grant asked Kenzie to marry him, it snowed.
The snow fell like someone shaking sprinkles on a cupcake, all in a flurry.

The morning of the day Grant asked Kenzie to be his wife, a man stood on a street corner, holding a sign proclaiming himself a single father to two daughters.
He stood in the falling snow.
As the light turned green, I took his photograph and wondered if he remembered the day he asked his wife to marry him...


The day passed slowly and as the light began to fall, the snow stopped and the sun shed light on the hotel where Grant would ask Kenzie
to marry him...

Grant's mom and dad and Kenzie's mom and dad knew of the ensuing events and hid while Grant and Kenzie ate a delightful dinner.
Then he pulled her outside, sat her down and asked her if she remembered the earrings she had been wanting?

But instead, brought out this...


And she said this...

When they walked back into the restaurant, this was waiting for them...


And this...

For the rest of my life I will live,
knowing I was on the same street,
at the same time that Grant asked Kenzie to spend the rest of her life with him.


And
she said yes.

**A Very Big Thank You goes out to Grant's sister, Ashley and her fiance for planning everything out meticulously months in advance, for coordinating times and setting up locations and for meeting me prior! You did a heck of a job and deserve *the best sister* award by far!**

Congrats Grant and Kenzie!!! What fun it will be to plan both of your weddings! ;)
