My brother Brad told me, when I propose, I have to surprise Meg. I wanted our friend Ben to capture the proposal on camera. The plan was to propose on the bench where we first met, in Cumberland.
It couldn’t have unfolded more perfectly. Ben joined us for coffee and brought his camera to show Meg photos of a recent trip to San fran with Tammy. Once we were almost done our coffee Ben proceeded outside to take photos of the historic building the coffee shop is in. Meg and I finished our coffee and walked outside. As ben was across the street taking photos Meg figured we should get a photo on “our bench”! Ben laughed, as the perfect setup and surprise was about to unfold! Meg didn’t realize how easy she was making it for us. (She had also invited Ben for coffee, I had planned to have him hide in the bush.)
The photos started clicking away, and to Meg’s surprise I was quickly down on my knee.
