Megan and Maddy
Megan & Maddy[dropcap color=”rosy”]M[/dropcap]addy and I met in high school almost 11 years ago. There has always been good banter within our circle of friends as to when Matt would finally do the big dead but none of us expected him to be so cunning in his plan of proposing and for the first time he actually was able to hide this surprise from me
This past Dec/Jan holidays, I was finally asked to join the family on an amazing ski trip to Val de Iser in France. It was four days into our snowboarding adventure and I was still very nervous about the whole concept and technique of boarding as well as being overwhelmed with seeing snow for the first time in my life. Maddy was an amazing teacher and really had a lot of patience to put up with all my tears and moaning those past few days.
That morning he seemed to be a lot quieter than usual. The sun was shining and we had discussed taking as many photos as possible before the first snow fall which was said to be starting the following day. As we reached the top of the slope Maddy mentioned that we had not taken any photos of just the two of us in the snow and that it was the perfect day to do so.
So without thinking anything of it I agreed and we carried our boards off piste moving away from the crowds of other skiers. He began setting up his camera, balancing it strategically on his board and he shouted for me to take off my gloves and helmet, which I did. As I was putting everything down I looked up and he was down on one knee with a ring in his hand asking me to marry him.
The best part was that he had set his camera on a multishot function so the images you see below is the actually moment and you can see by my facial express as to how surprised I was.
