Have some tissues handy because this wedding proposal in the DC area is just too sweet for words! When I saw this scavenger hunt proposal from Susan Lines Photography, I may or may not have cried. Every year, John, the owner of the tacky Christmas sweater company Skedouche, hosts a modeling session for his friends to showcase new products. What Megan thought would be a morning of modeling session turned into the beginning of her journey (literally!) into her new life with John. With a limo driver and photographer in tote, Megan was surprised with friends and family waiting at each location with her next clue in hand!
From John: Dear Megan, I have a confession to make: there is no photo-shoot today. Instead, this day is dedicated entirely to you, the love of my life! I have been thinking about how I would ask you to marry me for quite some time. I know you have had “hunches” that it may be sometime in the fall, so it’s difficult to create that “surprise factor” without being too obvious. Instead of just popping the question out of the blue, I’m choosing to embrace the fun and excitement of getting engaged and have planned a scavenger hunt for you today. Spoiler alert – if you complete the scavenger hunt, then I will reward you by asking you a very important, life-changing question.
You can’t go on a proper scavenger hunt without a limo. This chariot will take you wherever you need to go and comes complete with mimosas and a decent Kleenex supply. Can you imagine getting engaged and having ugly and damaged nails? Me neither! Use the cash provided to get everyone’s fingernails “did”. (hint: for yours, go with French Tips). Your next clue will be given when you are done.

Do you remember the time we first kissed? Sharing a poncho has never been as fun as that was!
Your next clue is waiting for you at that very spot.
Before you are given your next clue, you must first buy a nice dress and a pair of shoes for tonight. Given the size of your posse, you should have a wealth of opinions. Your dress should be classy and elegant – just like you! Feel free to shop around at any store in Tysons, but remember you only have two hours until the limo departs. So find a nice dress, grab some shoes, and you will be given the next clue once you are done. Happy Shopping!
Grab your dress and shoes, and head up to the suite that I have prepared for you. Take a shower and get yourself ready for tonight. But be quick – you have only 1.5 hours until you receive your next clue!
Tell the girls to pack up their suitcases and take them in the limo. You can leave your stuff in the hotel room. Your next clue is waiting for you at your favorite restaurant in downtown Clifton. And no, it’s not the pub, or Peterson’s. Go there and buy a round of Titanics for you and the girls! Your next clue is waiting for you at the place where I met the love of my life for the very first time.
You have arrived at your final destination. We are standing at the very spot where we first met back in 2008. I remember shaking your hand and thinking to myself what beautiful woman you were, and finally understanding why Danny K kept me away from you for so long! I had no idea that day that I had just met the love of my life. As promised, the time has come to ask you a very important question, and there is no better place to ask then here at the place where we first met. Join me on our bright new path together!
I mean, is this not the most unique wedding proposal you’ve seen? John, you have truly set the bar with wedding proposals! Congratulations Megan and John! Thank you for letting us share your love story. If you want to see even more and get the full details (aka plan a proposal hunt of your own!), you can check it out on photographer and friend, Susan’s blog.
