Melissa didn't know it, but a quick weekend trip away from the California sunshine (and into the Seattle drizzle) with her boyfriend and son would also be the weekend Patrick would propose!
Patrick contacted me in advance of their trip and we made arrangements for the photographing and videorecording of the proposal as surreptitiously as possible. Towards the end Melissa may have started to suspect something but luckily a busy week at work helped distract her. Check out the video I made for them using a song that was meaningful to them—Maroon 5's Sugar. Scroll down for the photos and click on any to enlarge.
Congratulations to Melissa, Patrick, and Jameson! I hope you have a wonderful life together! Your future is bright despite the grey, chilly, totally Seattle December day of your engagement! ;-)
