This story starts with an early morning diner breakfast with friends, trading stories over thick slices of bacon and endless black coffee. While we were walking out, Christian gave us all a quick glimpse at the ring. He had it hidden inside a pocket watch, with an assortment of small reminders of his year long relationship with Elle-May. We set off on a beautiful foggy drive towards the coast. As the sun climbed and the thermometer budged above 32F, we started our hike. We hadn’t expected snow. I’ll let the photos take over from here.
