Who doesn't love a surprise engagement? Well, it turns out, this beautiful bride-to-be, that's who! So it worked out perfectly when Krista caught on to Matt's proposal plans but played along anyway.
These sweethearts met as teenagers and were friends for years before dating. When it came time to propose, Matt selected Edgewood Resort in South Lake Tahoe as the place to pop the question.
Working with photographer Elsa Boscarello, he enlisted the help of Reno-based The Hytch to create a romantic engagement setting.
Once on the beach, Matt got down on one knee and proposed to Krista in front of a flowy arch of foliage and the wintry mountain scape encircling the lake.
She said yes and, after the proposal, the couple enjoyed a celebratory champagne toast. Now it's time to plan a wedding!
