Then we went to the Harry P. Leu Botanical Gardens where Michael proposed. I've been wanting to go back for ages! The weather was hot, but the sunshine was enjoyable. We were worried that it would rain, but never got more than a few sprinkles. I have very much liked having Parker around to take all the digital photos on his Canon T2i because I feel like I can enjoy more of life when I don't have my face hidden behind a camera. However, I really do like having photo memories as well. Parker took a wonderful reenactment Polaroid of Michael and I in the "Cinderella area" where that special moment happened at 1:41pm on Saturday, September 25th 2010. There were more mini Polaroids taken, but these few were the prettiest. Michael took the gazebo one below. The light colors turned out much prettier when he over exposed it than when I first attempted it from a different angle.
Side note ~ I am currently obsessed with THIS Taylor Swift music video & am going to see if I can convince Julie to be my model for a related photo shoot in the near future.
