The very first thing you’ll learn about Deanna is that this amazing woman would give the shirt off her back to literally anyone who needed it. She is so thoughtful, so caring, and would never do anything to benefit herself over anyone else.
When I asked Deanna a long time ago how she wanted to be proposed to long ago, she told me that she didn’t care what the proposal was or where it was at, but that she wanted me there to photograph it. I was floored! Of course, I’d be honored to be there!
When Levi called me to tell me he was ready to pop the question and he wanted me there, I didn’t even hesitate. We got right to planning and soon enough had the date picked and everything!
Fast-forward to the big day and rain was in the forecast, but we were making this happen no matter what! Our mutual best friend, Kelsey, and I hopped in the car early in the morning to make the 8-hour drive and drove through pouring rain the entire. way. down.
But just like that, the rain ended as we approached the Outer Banks and we found ourselves with nearly perfect weather. We spotted the beach and pier that means so much to Deanna and Levi, then we hid for the big moment! With Kelsey on FaceTime with Deanna’s family so they could see it happen live, Levi got down on one knee and proposed right then and there. It was a big resounding YES!
Such a beautiful moment that I’ll certainly never forget – to see one of my best friends in the entire world commit to be married to the man of her dreams!
I’m so excited for the both of you and to be a part of your big wedding day!
