You might need to sit down for this! I have a surprise DC wedding proposal on the National Mall to share. It is so sweet, I promise you’ll get goosebumps! Earlier this week over the Memorial Day holiday, Kristi Odom, along with second shooter Kristina, sat under a tree along the tidal basin and secretly photographed while Chad proposed marriage to his girlfriend, Kristen. Chad worked with Kristi to scope out the perfect spot and hatch a plan of surprise for Kristen. You can see the shock turn to happiness on her face! And to make it even sweeter, Chad is in the U.S. Coast Guard and he proposed over Memorial Day weekend….Chad, you are a keeper! This is the stuff fairy tales are made of, for sure!
I mean, can you stand it? How cute was that? Thank you so much Chad and Kristen for letting us share your love story! We wish you the best!
For all the ladies and ‘gents out there totally jealous of Chad’s planning and surprise tactics, be sure check out this post that I wrote a on how to proposal marriage in Washington, DC. We’ve featured a few more local DC area wedding proposals on the blog too!
