Taryn + Josh’s August engagement has us itching for warmer wedding and outdoor proposals!
It all went down on a busy Saturday afternoon at the Adler Planetarium, Taryn + Josh’s photography Ebby L. Photography sat anxiously awaiting for the couple’s family members to arrive for the special event. “The clouds threatened rain, but thankfully never gave us any. There were text messages back and forth to Josh who was inside of the Planetarium with Taryn. ‘Where are you going to propose? Do you want us hiding somewhere? When are you going to come out? We are just waiting for her grandma to get here,” she says.
As the anticipation continued to build, a half hour became a lifetime until Josh + Taryn were spotted walking down the steps. Sitting with her camera, their photographer sat near other strangers on the pathway trying to blend in, with the couple’s families staying back to hide themselves from the couple’s walk.
Fiddling in his pocket, the start of the proposal began. Josh had Taryn set down her purse to hold his hands. After talking a little bit, it all worked just how Josh had planned. Getting down on one knee, he asked Taryn to marry him. Without hesitation, she said yes as their families rushed out from hiding to congratulate them.
Realizing what was happening around the, outsiders cheered and a newly married couple even asked to take a photo with them! Even with the beautiful water and Chicago skyline, Josh and Taryn stole the show.
