Right around February is when I am itching for weddings to come back! I’m usually looking through last season’s images and missing all the sweet couples I’ve gotten to work with. Luckily, February was the month that Sid reached out and said he’d be proposing to Kayli at her favorite spot: Castle in the Clouds.

The Proposal Spot

Castle in the Clouds is an incredible place in the lakes region of central New Hampshire. The property boasts stunning mountain views for miles and is well known in the area. When Sid told me he wanted to propose there, I was psyched to capture this important moment at such a stunning place – especially because Kayli had said she wanted to get married there, so I knew the location held a lot of significance for the two of them.

Capturing the Big Moment

The big day arrived and I was so excited! I checked in with Sid and ensured him I’d be well hidden so that the surprise could go according to plan. It was bitter cold up in the mountains, but I knew it would be all worth it. When they arrived, Sid brought Kayli up to the carriage house for the big moment. He got down on one knee and Kayli was ecstatic (and obviously said YES!)

The best part was that both of their families came to celebrate the day and witness the proposal from afar, so we had time to capture some family photos after the proposal moment. Then Sid, Kayli and I grabbed a few quick “newly engaged” portraits around the property.

It was an honor to witness and capture this day for Sid, Kayli and their families. Congratulations, you two! You can explore all the best shots from their winter proposal below.
