Detroit Proposal on Belle Isle

Detroit Proposal on Belle Isle

Jon emailed me looking to propose to Bry once things warmed up.  It was a cold and long winter.  Then, I received an email from Jon simply asking, “How does this weekend look for you?”  With that, we met on Friday and started planning his Detroit Proposal on Belle Isle.

Running has long played a role in their lives and their relationship.  Some of their first dates were actually training for the Detroit Free Press Marathon.  Belle Isle was one of their training spots, running around the Isle and finishing in the southern tip.  Just like any other run, Jon and Bry finished their run at Sunset Point.  Bry’s sister, Mysha, joined them on the run and helped with the proposal.  As they were walking their cool down, Jon suggested they take a photo or two.  Mysha and Bry smiled, embracing and standing along the shoreline.  Jon handed the phone off to Mysha, and stood behind Bry, hugging her from behind and slowly positioning her for his upcoming proposal.

As Mysha was taking photos of Bry and Jon, she slowly backed up, giving Jon and Bry a little bit of privacy for what she knew was about to happen.  As she backed up, I got into position and watched as Jon’s Detroit proposal on Belle Isle unfolded.

Jon slyly hid the ring in his running pouch and transferred it to his shorts during their photo.  As Mysha walked away, Jon began to talk to Bry.  As he stepped back and took a knee, Bry began to realize what was happening.  She was being proposed to!  Her reaction was so genuine; part shock, part surprise, and 100% happiness.

After taking a few moments alone to celebrate, Mysha joined the group.  It was so special to have her there as Bry and Mysha have a very close bond.

After their Detroit proposal on Belle Isle, we stuck around and took some impromptu engagement photos, running gear and all!
