Julia + Christian | Surprise Proposal at the Stone Arch Bridge - Minneapolis, MN

Sometimes, the best kept secret is the one you share with all of your friends!  Julia and Christian are college sweethearts whose friends banded together to help pull off the perfect sunset proposal at the Stone Arch Bridge. 

While Julia enjoyed a dinner date with her sorority sisters at the Aster Cafe, Christian and his buddies joined me at the Stone Arch Bridge to pull off the perfect proposal.  As the ladies departed the restaurant, they headed to the Stone Arch Bridge to take some photos "for recruitment" for their sorority... little did Julia know that all of her friends were in on the big secret! 

As they stopped to pose for a few photos, Christian sneaked up behind her with a beautiful heirloom engagement ring and the surprise on her face says it all!  He got down on one knee with the beautiful Minneapolis skyline behind them and asked her to marry him.  After a YES! and an endless stream of excited kisses, we snapped some portraits of the two of them and even made a pit stop at the famed Izzy's Ice Cream!

Congratulations, lovebirds!

(Fun fact:  Julia and I belong to the same sorority -- Kappa Alpha Theta at the University of Minnesota!  Small world!  #thetalove)
