Exactly one year ago I filmed my entire engagement without even realizing.
We had a day off work, so I decided I wanted to take Brad to the Great Salt Lake (one of my favorite places) to have a little photo date. We snapped some pictures, and later got invited on a sailboat ride from a stranger (Lance) and of course we said yes! We sailed out to the most beautiful December sunset… And me being me, I had my camera out filming the whole thing. I showed the lady on the boat how to use my camera, because I wanted to get a cute shot of Brad and I together. I was so confused when he wouldn’t come sit by me – he started kneeling in the bottom of the boat. My stomach flipped upside down when he then said, “Haiz, I actually know Lance already..” I got this freaked out, vulnerable feeling and didn’t quite know what to think! Similar to the feeling I had when I found out Santa wasn’t real – it got really awkward. Then he opened up the side of my grandpas vintage camera (that we had used as a photo prop earlier) to reveal my ring tied to the gears with a cute little white bow. And what did I say?
“Are you serious!?”
Still to this day, I’m weirded out how he surprised me so well.
