Devin & Karmen | Lavender Farm Engagement | Janet Lin Photography

Are you a fan of ABC’s The Bachelor/Bachelorette? If so, you’ve seen your fair share of stunning and elaborate proposals. When I met Devin and Karmen at Mountainside Lavender in Hillsboro, Oregon, I hadn’t yet heard how they got engaged.  I just knew they were two incredibly down-to-earth and deeply in love humans. Whether you’re a part of Bachelor Nation or not, you are NOT going to want to miss this engagement story... 

Though they’d been together for some time, Karmen didn’t have any immediate indication that a proposal was coming, which made this epic and thoughtful proposal that much more wonderful.

One night, when Karmen returned from the grocery store, she was welcomed by strings of lights, carefully creating a path that led to their backyard.  As she started to follow the path, she noticed it was filled with fresh rose petals.

When she entered the backyard, she found that the path led to a platform he’d created on their back deck, completely covered with lit candles.  The setting was absolutely gorgeous. Karmen reminisced about how it was something you’d see on The Bachelor, a show they’ve watch together for some time, giggling at all the crazy antics and taking bets on every turn of events.

There on the platform was a single rose, and Devin in a full suit, holding their precious baby girl, Gracie. While Devin looked steller in his suit, it was Gracie’s outfit that brought Karmen to tears. Her darling little onesie read, “Mama, will you be a Warner, too?” on the front, and “Baby Warner” on the back.

Devin got down on one knee, revealing the custom ring he had designed for Karmen, and asked her to be his wife.  And as you may have guessed, Karmen said YES! 

The Bachelor may know how to pull of some incredible proposals, but I think Devin and Gracie have them beat!

Congrats on your engagement, Devin and Karmen!  I am so looking forward to capturing your wedding day and have no doubt it will be a day to remember.
