T Y L E R & A L E X I S
On Friday, December 23rd, at the Botanica Gardens Illuminations Display, Tyler had comprised a beautiful surprise plan by which he would propose to his girlfriend, Alexis. After scouting out an array of possible locations at which he could propose, Tyler and I met up to finalize the best possible location for him to propose. We ironed out the necessary logistics (I was amazed at how much time and thought he had put into making this not only a seamless event, but also surprise for Alexis), and everything was set for the 23rd.
On that night, the last night that Botanica's Illuminations Display was open, the gardens was filled with a sea of Wichitan's enjoying the Christmas season. The area that Tyler had selected for his proposal was a particularly population location (due to perhaps the height of the beautiful Christmas tree, paired with its being synchronized to the Chrismtas music being played). When Tyler, his daughter, and Alexis arrive to this spot, Tyler suggested --nonchalantly-- hopping the "fence" of Christmas lights and taking a photo of them closer to the tree. They all went along with the idea, and while they were taking the photo, Alexis' best friends came out from behind the tree with a sign saying, "Will you marry me?" As you can well guess, by the time Alexis turned around from seeing the sign Tyler was on one knee, and she said yes to what I would daresay was her favorite Christmas present this year. I'll let the photos tell the rest of the story that comes with this beautiful moment, but I just wanted to thank Tyler and Alexis for allowing me to be a part of it.
