Mark contacted me a couple weeks before he was going to propose to Alyson. The Schermerhorn Symphony Center in Nashville, TN is one of their favorite venues to attend events and he couldn't think of a better place for him to ask Alyson. Being a Nashville wedding photographer and avid symphony center enthusiast I just about fell out of my chair at this opportunity.
Mark setup a private tour of the entire center and had a pianist and I waiting in the Concert Hall for when they would walk in. I found a small storage closet with a peep hold near the back of the stage. I slipped in there and waited for them to enter. As they entered with the music playing, Mark dropped to one knee and ask Alyson to spend the rest of her life with him. I then open the storage door to get a better angle of the proposal. She of course said Yes! :)
After that we had a few minutes to take some more pictures of the newly engaged couple around the concert hall. Next year they'll be getting married at The Cordelle in Nashville and I'll be lucky enough to photograph their big wedding day.
