  • Engagement Surprise on a Boat

    So, my wife and I were able to help my now future son in law pull off some great surprises for our daughter earlier this week on our boat. They've known each other for years as good friends but started dating a few months ago. My daughter had surprised him in Wisconsin for the 4th of July with a surprise visit with the help of his family. After her boyfriend asked me permission to marry my daughter over the phone about a month back, we decided that a payback surprise on the boat would be great, and he also wanted to propose on the boat. This called for a GoPro camera so I could capture all the fun. So, this Tuesday, I was able to head to the marina before my wife and daughter to do a "maintenance" project---which really was picking him up at the airport. The plan was to have my wife and daughter arrive later, short cruise on the bay, and then we'd go out for us three to have a nice family dinner at a local steakhouse. Little did my daughter know. Well, let's just cue the video:

          Awesome! Congratulations. I was able to video and photograph my sister-in-law's underwater engagement earlier this summer. I also proposed to my wife three years ago after a boat ride and bbq dinner on a favorite island.

            Man that was so cool, on a boat no less. I'll admit...teared up a bit. Great job!

                    That's cool. My son proposed to his bride on the 16' fishing boat that belonged to my Dad. Mom gave the boat to him after dad passed away.
