Sam wanted to propose to his girlfriend in front of a waterfall while he was in the Smoky Mountains with his girlfriend. I recommend Laurel Falls since it is a shorter hike. We have been discussing how this day would go for awhile and finally figured out our plans. With Proposals I typically don’t know the couple and so I rely on photos and descriptions of what they ware wearing. Same sent me a photo that morning through email, but the photo of her never came through due to not much cell phone service in the area. I finally got it to come up and luckily spotted them on the trail close to the waterfall.
He really lucked up with not having a huge crowd up there watching. I just stood back and waited. He gave her a hug and the got down on one knee. She was so giddy with excitement and in definite shock. He then pointed out that I was in on the plan. She couldn’t believe it!!
Sam kept giving her a hard time for what she was wearing. She was going on a hike and wanted to be comfortable. Who would have blamed her? I had a great time going up on the Laurel Falls trail taking their photos of the proposal and then a few posed photos.
I hope you enjoy the photos and treasure them for years to come!
