The story behind Krystle and Derrick’s proposal story was so romantic. Now I am a sucker for love and family – but this proposal took the cake!
Derrick planned for a weekend out of town. The excuse to get Krystle on board to go out of town was to go watch the Lakers play in Salt Lake City since Krystle is a HUGE Kobe fan. So naturally, Krystle began to pack. Once they finally got on the road, Derrick had told the disappointing news that they weren’t going to Salt Lake City – but continued to drive to their actual destination. They finally arrived to Chateau Elan and Krystle was simply elated! Little did she know Derrick had arranged for Krystle’s family, who traveled from Mississippi, Louisiana, New York, Alabama, Nebraska, Washington DC, Texas and Georgia, to be present when he finally got down on one knee.
Derrick even included the waiter in his surprise proposal by “under cooking” Krystle’s steak and upgrading their dinner table to the rooftop of Chateau Elan. Once on the rooftop, a door opened and all of Krystle’s family began pouring in – surprised and confused Krystle began to cry. That is when Derrick got down on one knee and proposed to Krystle!
It was simply amazing how Derrick got all of Krystle’s friends and family to be in town to witness their love and commitment to each other…
(without her knowing – might I add)
I am so excited to be photographing their wedding next year! Congrats again you two!
I am definitely a fan of her skirt!
Looking forward to next year!
