When Kruze reached out to me, he knew he wanted an adventurous proposal and was looking at hikes in Washington. We bounced ideas back & forth and looked through trails with waterfalls. In the end he chose Twin Falls, so we took a day hike to make sure it was the best place for his waterfall proposal.
A few weeks later, I hiked to the chosen location again. It was spring, so the river’s water level had risen significantly since our initial trip and I had to get creative to cross. The last jump between rocks was long and I wasn’t sure I could clear it…then I looked over and saw a 2×4 laying along the trail. Not a piece of wood that had broken off a tree, an actual 2×4 plank in the wilderness. It was a godsend.
Once I made it across, it was a waiting game. When I first saw them making their way toward the base of the waterfall, Kruze was helping Jade across the rocks. It was so sweet to watch the care he took to keep her safe (and dry) as they hiked together. Since I was across the river and the water was rushing, I couldn’t hear what Kruze was saying. But as Jade turned around from taking pictures of the scenery, he got down on one knee and you can see the joy that follows.
Jade and Kruze, thank you so much for asking me to document such a special day in your life. Your wedding is going to be beautiful and your life together even more sweet!
