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...

I love that Mike & Alicia's story reminds me of the importance of patience, timing, and friendship. After developing a wonderful friendship, these two found romance in each other. After nearly six years of dating, Mike proposed to Alicia in the most romantic setting... And the best part was, she had NO idea it was coming!

Timing, patience, and perseverance.  After hearing Alicia and Mike's beautiful love story, those are the words I would use to characterize their journey. Ironically, those are also the words I would use to describe our adventurous afternoon in the Pacific Northwest wilderness as we set out to capture the perfect engagement photos!
