Brendan contacted me with his plan to propose to his girlfriend Megan before the holidays started and I literally couldn’t wait for the day to arrive. He planned out a wonderful walkthrough of the Dallas Arboretum holiday display, and they took a little detour to check out the Rose Garden. Megan was hopeful that he would be proposing soon and couldn’t have been more excited and elated when Brendan lowered himself to one knee under the wrought iron dome of the Rose Garden and asked her to become his wife, to take the next step in their life.
I’ve always thought that I understood joy, but I was wrong. Megan’s face was the most joyous thing that I have even beheld and I am honoured to have been there to see it.
We took a walk around the arboretum and got some photos for them, I love doing this because you really get to see the excitement after the fact and it shows so much on both of their faces. Brendan and Megan, you are a dream! Thank you for having me there, I cannot wait to see where life takes you both next!
