Gideon was Dan’sÂ roommateÂ in college and he was even in our wedding! Needless to say, when he contacted us and told us about his plan for a surprise engagement to his lovely girlfriend Autumn, we were so in! Being “in” involved scheming, and travelling 7 hours to Charlotte, and climbing to the top of a mountain, but it was all worth it. Autumn was completely blown away seeing her boyfriend (who lives in Curacao by the way) at the top of King’s Mountian. She thought Gideon was a jerk not coming to see her in the states for Thanksgiving… haha. When she saw him, she collapsed to the ground. It was awesome! How beautiful isÂ AutumnÂ by the way? Remember that she just hiked to the top of a mountain? Â Take in the view. Feel the love. Try not to be jealous. We are.
