ProposalThe-RingCeinwyn and I are engaged. We flew in to Charleston SC this morning and the first thing I did was take her on a walk over the new Cooper River bridge. We had done this same walk last summer and I knew that’s where I wanted to propose to her. When we got to the top I set my camera up to take photos on an interval timer. Ceinwyn thought we were just going up there to take a portrait of ourselves, so when I started talking about our life together she was a bit confused. Things became clearer when I got down on one knee,  held  out the ring and asked her to marry me. She said yes.
