LIVIJA + MATTHEW

Engaged at Arizona’s Horseshoe Bend

On our way from Sedona to our AirBnB in Kanab, Utah, we stopped by an absolutely packed Horseshoe Bend to “see the bend near sunset” (which turned out to just be an excuse for Matthew to scope out the area for a perfect proposal spot). The next morning, we woke up at 3am to play with the dogs and pack for the day before we started on our 2 hour drive back to Page, Arizona. We arrived at Horseshoe Bend and were so excited to find that we were the first car in the lot. We made the 10 minute hike down to the observation area and enjoyed the the amazing view that we had all to ourselves. Eventually more and more people started showing up so Matthew suggested that we venture off the beaten path a little and get to a place where it was just the two of us for “pictures.” I found a spot for Matthew to take some pictures of me looking out over the river, and as I turned around, I saw Matthew down on one knee. At that moment, I could not believe what I saw and turned around and back to find Matthew still on one knee with a ring in his hand. The first words out of his mouth were “Livija, you need to promise me you aren’t going to fall backwards over the cliff…” This was the beginning of our newly engaged life.
