Jake + Sarah | An Enchanted Christmas Proposal at Willow River Falls - Willow River State Park - Hudson, WI

Proposal Location:  Willow River Falls at Willow River State Park - Hudson, WI

Jake and Sarah met through mutual friends and had their first date at a local festival in the Summer of 2013.

Jake knew Sarah was "The One" and came up with the perfect plan to propose to his love.  He dreamed of a quiet location, somewhere in the outdoors, where he would ask her to be his wife, since they really enjoyed being active and travelling to explore new places together.

Earlier this past summer, Jake and Sarah had gone hiking at Willow River State Park in Hudson, WI.  As he was thinking of where to pop the question, he realized Willow River Falls would be perfect!

Together, Jake and Laura devised the perfect plan to get them to the waterfall, where Laura had set up a perfect little Christmas Proposal picnic for the two of them, complete with Christmas ornaments with their initials and a bottle of champagne.  They started their chilly Saturday morning Christmas Tree shopping with her parents, then headed to the park.

As they wandered the trails, they talked and dreamed together.  Then Jake led her to the clearing near the Falls and handed Sarah a letter that told her about how much he loves her and led her over to the picnic.  There, he got down on one knee.  After a big YES!, Sarah showed off her sparkling new engagement ring, and they popped the bottle of champagne.  The happy couple explored the waterfalls a bit for some fun portraits together and then met their parents for a celebratory dinner.

Congratulations, lovebirds!
