Mike Proposes To Donna | The Island | Pigeon Forge Photographer

Mike and Donna have known each other for many years, like since they were kids. Life took them different ways but now they are dating. They have been dating for 7 months and planned a weekend in Pigeon Forge. Mike contacted me back in Sept about proposing to his girlfriend. He had so many great ideas, but settled on doing it at The Island in Pigeon Forge. He requested the Bruno Mars song “Marry Me” to play over the intercom after the water show right at 1:15. He then had her family to take a photo of them in front of the fountain and wheel. Then her daughter handed over a canvas she painted for him. The sign said “Will You Marry Me” She lost it! She went into shock and couldn’t stop hugging him!! I definitely teared up behind the camera!! I then got to take a few photos of them around the area.

There is a beautiful walkway close to the Island that we stopped at. Donna was so cute. She giggled and couldn’t stop hugging Mike. I bet she hugged him at least 30 times!!
