Welcome to my second blog! This blog will focus on the love story between my brother, Scott, and his girlfriend, Maddy, and how it led to a proposal on June 29, 2018. I am so, so happy I could be there to capture this moment and this day.
Let’s go back to day one to give some back story. Scott and Maddy started dating their senior year of high school. Scott had a crush on Maddy when they spent time together during rehearsal for the spring musical, Grease. Scott decided to ask Maddy to prom. After she said yes to his creative request, Scott and Maddy began to spend time together. A week before prom, Scott asked Maddy to be his girlfriend, which appeared to please prom attendees; on the night of prom, Scott and Maddy were voted prom king and queen! After graduating from high school, Scott and Maddy attended the local community college together and then transferred to universities in the Los Angeles area, ultimately earning Bachelor of Arts degrees from Azusa Pacific University. Scott applied to and was then accepted as one of two master students at San Diego State University. And for Maddy to complete her educational goals of earning a Masters in Education and a teaching credential, she applied to and was accepted into the University of Southern California's online credential program. Maddy then moved to San Diego to be close to Scott. With only one more semester left in Maddy's program, and two years to complete in Scott's program, Scott decided it was time to further commit to his first love. They planned a friend trip to Maddy’s family lake house for the weekend in late June. Scott prepared to propose to Maddy and she had no idea.
As part of the plan, I begged the group to take photos on day two of the lake trip. This is almost expected for me to do. I took photos of each couple, and then it was Scott and Maddy’s turn. Scroll down to see the proposal unfold.
