Auburn University Proposal – Trent & Sarah

Trent did something that rarely happens in proposals – he truly, 100% surprised his girlfriend the moment he got down on one knee. Sarah was SO surprised, she couldn’t even believe it was actually happening! They’re living a few hours apart while she finishes up her degree at Auburn University. He came into town early to prepare for the moment, which happened during what she thought was a simple walk from their tailgate spot to a store downtown.

Sarah was quite confused at first, but she eventually realized this moment was for real!surprise proposalsamford hall surprise proposalHer sweet groom surprised her with a beautiful ring and I’m sure added in a few sweet words :)auburn proposalproposal in front of samford hallhug after proposalOne of my favorite moments is the joy after she says “YES!”kiss after proposalfall photos after proposal

Thank you, Trent and Sarah, for allowing me to be a part of this precious moment with the two of you! You are a sweet and beautiful couple and I wish you the best as you begin to plan your wedding.
