Wonderful waterfall proposal
Andrew proposed to Katie on their six-year anniversary while standing over a waterfall at Gooseberry Falls. They had been taking pictures throughout their hike that day and towards the end of the day Katie turned away from the sun to check a photo she'd just taken. When she turned back around Andrew was waiting down on one knee.
After spending six incredible years together they look forward to starting the next chapter in their life as husband and wife.
