It all started with a coffee date. Christina, a coffee fanatic/enthusiast, was happy that Caleb shared this interest. Caleb, however, didn’t even like coffee. What he did like was the idea of spending time with Christina. 

Over several dates, they learned that Christina was a budding medical research student and Caleb an Infantry school graduate. Christina was shy, light-hearted, and wicked smart while Caleb was extroverted, charismatic, and silly. 

Fast forward a year and a half and Caleb is shopping for a wedding ring. While Christina is stressing over exams, Raymond of Raymond Jewelers and Caleb come up with a brilliant rectangular rose-gold stone design.

Caleb then evolves a master plan to propose during a family vacation on Nantucket Island. He enlists help from his videographer brother-in-law, his photographer sister(that's me), and his hopeful future in-laws.

This July vacation was only to last four days, and Caleb wanted to pop the question as soon as possible. So, after catching the late morning ferry to the island, landing, and getting ready for dinner in town at Fusaro's, we headed out to go see Brant Point

As we walked around the beach, the last ferry of the day passed by with Christina’s parents on board. I asked to get pictures of C+C in front of the lighthouse. Then and there Caleb gave us the signal(an unmistakable wink) and got down on one knee. Shaking from surprise and excitement, Christina replayed, “of course!”. 

After this successful surprise proposal, we spent the rest of the night laughing, dining out with family, and devolving all the hidden details that made this brant point proposal possible.
