Daniel called me about 3 weeks ago with this great idea that he wanted to ask his fiancé Annika to marry him at the top of the St. Augustine Lighthouse. He was supposed to ask her to be his girlfriend a few years before at the spot but it had been closed and thought it the perfect spot to get it right this time. And boy did he did he get it right! I got there early and hiked to the top to wait for their arrival. Daniel had sent me a photo of them so I knew what they looked like. We exchanged eye contact after they came out of the door onto the observation platform and I whispered as he passed me to take her to the sunny side. I then just hung close to the lighthouse and fired away as he pulls out the pale blue Tiffany box, gets down on one knee and asks Annika to be his wife. And of course she said, “Yes!” Followed by, “We need to ask someone to take our picture!” To which Daniel points to me and said, “You mean like her?!” It was priceless!
The other tourists clapped with one exclaiming, “No way! Did that really just happen?!”
She looked down at her hand with this gorgeous ring on it and said to Daniel, “How did you know this is the one I wanted?” Daniel sheepishly said, “I saw it on your Pinterest page.” Love it!!!
We then walked over to the St. Augustine Yacht Club to take advantage of the gorgeous winter sunset. Congrats you two!!!
