Loved spending the afternoon with these two during their Papago Park engagement photos! I asked them each to tell me about Neil’s proposal:
Neil: We went to the Omni Montelucia for a “staycation” and attended happy hour (one of our favorite pastimes) before having dinner at Prado, where we drank a bottle of Arizona wine. After dinner, we enjoyed a beautiful desert sunset before walking back to our room. The stairs up to the second floor opened up to a deck with an excellent view of Camelback Mountain and the desert sunset. I pulled the ring out of my pocket and asked her to marry me. The next morning we had a spa day before returning back home.
Brea: We had talked about getting married and had a pretty solid timeline set. I had a slight feeling that the proposal might happen that night, but didn’t want to expect anything. I didn’t want to be upset if it didn’t happen and it was still a lovely evening. I was quite surprised when he did ask me though! The funny thing is that Neil says he slept so well that night because he was so relieved, but I barely slept because I just kept thinking of all the things we now had to do!
