As Dede and her friends sat around the table at a small bakery, Ben was the last person on her mind. After all, he was in Little Rock, and she was here in Fayetteville for a weekend with her sorority girls. After they had eaten, someone suggested they head to the University of Arkansas to find their names on the senior walk, and everyone readily agreed.
They parked on Old Main, and began to walk toward their names. But as Dede took a left, her friends continued straight. She was confused; they were leading her in the wrong direction. But reluctantly, she followed, and when she looked up, she saw him. Ben. Standing near the class of 1904 with a sign that simply said, “marry me?”. Dede felt a million emotions at once – shock, confusion, surprise…. but most of all, joy.
Of course she’d marry him.
Dede and Ben, thank you for allowing me to witness a bit of the joy, silliness, and fun you to share. I had a wonderful time getting to know you both a bit more this weekend during your Iron Mountain Marina Engagement session, and I’m excited to document this season of your life! I hope you cherish these photographs and the love captured within for a lifetime.
