Surprise Proposal in Bozeman

Seven weeks ago I received an inquiry from Sid about his plan to propose to his lady friend Marisa in Bozeman. We struck up a conversation about his grand plan and over the weeks we refined it to fit his vision of his big surprise. I suggested a spot that was fairly public so I would have some anonymity among other’s out walking and enjoying Peets Hill. And as fate would have it, the day was snowy and cold and the plan went without a hitch. She was absolutely shocked!!!

Afterwards we went in search of open space and scenery in Paradise Valley. The entire valley was socked in with low lying clouds and then came the snow. It was a glorious day for a marriage proposal!

Enjoy the view!
