Gunny & Lynn: The Proposal!

I got an email early last week that read:

B/c in Genesis 2:18 “The Lord God said, “It is not good for the man to be alone…” and b/c I believe Lynn’s the most awesome person in this whole wide world, I have decided to propose to her this Thursday!

How exciting!! The proposal itself was a private moment between the two so I don’t have any pictures from that.  (I hear it involved a lot of candles, a teddy bear, and a whole ton of good old fashioned Gunny romance)  But I did get to be part of the surprise party with family and friends later that night at Lynn’s sister’s house!

We ran into a minor hiccup when we first arrived; Gunny emailed us the wrong address!  No one answered the door.  Fortunately for us, directly across the street was a house with a lot of activity going on.  We guessed that was probably the correct house, and we were right!

Now all we had to do was wait in the dark for the couple to arrive so we could surprise Lynn! She came in sporting a beautiful ring on her finger so I assume she said yes. Good job Gunny! The rest of the night was filled with fun & festivities with the great couple.

I did manage to fire off a couple of shots throughout the night to capture it. It was a joyous occasion -the smiles in the pictures tell it all =)
