From Dana Widman Photography: Hailey-Garet Proposal-Minneapolis Sculpture Garden
I was asked to photograph a surprise proposal at the Sculpture Garden in Minneapolis. Garet was my son’s teacher two years ago and we just fell in love with that amazing Mr. Chumley. At the time I would joke when he was going to pop the question to his gorgeous girlfriend, Hailey.
Fast forward two years and here we were – perfect evening, young and energetic sweet couple, Minneapolis skyline and a sparkly diamond to kick off the wedding planning and adventures. Congratulations to these two amazing teachers who begin not only a fresh new school year but also a fresh new chapter of life.
PS… Hailey is a 12th grade English teacher. I really don’t remember any HS English teacher being a freaking knockout. Thank you for a memorable and truly joyful evening
Q and A with the couple:
Let’s start at the beginning. How did you two first meet?
We both attended The College of St. Scholastica in Duluth, Minnesota. Garet played hockey and I was a hockey cheerleader. We both noticed one another at a game but I wasn’t looking for anything serious. When he finally asked me out on a date, I was so incredibly nervous because he was a junior and myself a freshman. Needless to say the date went well and we’ve been together ever since.
What makes your relationship special? Tell us some things that you both value in your time together. (example: pushing each other to new limits, love to travel, huge comic book fans, foodies, etc.) What makes your relationship unique?
What makes our relationship special is our ability to challenge one another. We also share similar interests, so it’s never difficult to find something fun to do. This has led to some of our most exciting adventures together. Most importantly, living in different cities taught us to truly value any amount of time that we have together.
How did you know your partner was the one? When did you first know this in your relationship? (these may often be the same moment, but aren’t always)
Garet came up North with my family for the weekend a few weeks after we started dating. The first night we were there, I received the news that a close friend of mine had passed away. Garet was supposed to go back to Duluth the following morning but instead he stayed with me for the next four days. Right then I knew he was the one.
Give us all the details about the proposal. How and where did it happen? Was it a surprise? What was the planning process?
Garet planned the proposal with some guidance from my mom, who helped with the decorating and set up. We had been wanting to try a restaurant in Minneapolis called Bar La Grassa for quite some time. After dinner, I thought we were headed to the Walker Art Center for a game of mini golf.
As we strolled down the walkway of the sculpture garden, Garet grabbed my hand and took me right in front of the cherry and spoon. He then had me remove a sheet which revealed a picture frame with our favorite photos, a sign with the big question, and an array of candles. He popped the question with tons of people watching and I burst into tears. The final surprise was having our friends and family celebrate with us at a nearby brewery.
Are you excited to start planning your wedding day? Do you have any ideas in mind yet?
We have almost all of the details worked out. When we began planning everything seemed to fall into place. We couldn’t be more excited!
Update – The wedding was in Minneapolis in September of 2018.
