Eric and Thea | Roswell wedding proposal
May 6, 2013
Eric and I were friends in college and I was honored and flattered when he asked me to photograph his proposal to his girlfriend Thea. He wanted it to take place in this quiet little stream next to a park up in Roswell. He built a sailboat to deliver a “proposal in a bottle” to her.
Everyone had a lot of fun with this one. Eric had his friend and best man Dallas drop the sailboat off in the water up stream while I was hiding behind a tree ready to take their picture as the events unfolded. The sailboat didn’t do what it was supposed to though. It was designed to float all by itself, but once you mounted a glass bottle to the top, it didn’t float the way it should. So basically Dallas blew his cover trying to push the boat downstream when it didn’t move the way it was supposed to.
Eric eventually had to go fetch the boat from the other side of the stream and bring it to Thea so should could read her message. She said yes and we all had a good laugh about it after it was over. It was a great time for everyone involved.
Here are a few of my favorites from the series:
