Surprise Proposal at Sanctuary Camelback Mountain Resort | Arizona Weddings Magazine

Let’s face it, all proposals are a surprise. Think about it. You and your partner decide to go out to your favorite place or your favorite spot, whether it’s in town or out of town, there’s no particular reason why you are going but you’re going “just because.” You’re both dressed nicely and your nails seem to be perfectly in order. When you finally get to your spot you sit in anticipation as your mind may run to the possibility of the question being popped, but you still aren’t sure. Although you’ve thought of the possibility and the setting could be a perfect moment, you still are surprised when it happens because it is a moment that can never be mundane. Lucky for us, DJ and Stephanie’s story backs up our theory.

The couple met at The Bungalow in Santa Monica five months after they had first been connected via Bumble. It was on DJ’s third trip back to the golden state of California when they finally met in person! While DJ had to travel back home, the two of them continued their separate lives until Stephanie decided to visit DJ out in Phoenix, which is where their true love story began. It was 15 months after they’d met that the couple went to Sanctuary Camelback Mountain Resort overlooking Paradise Valley for a “test shoot.” To Stephanie’s surprise, 15 minutes into the photo session with GarrenTee Photography, DJ popped the question! Without hesitation, Stephanie said yes! Yet another surprise proposal. What a wonderful way for the couple to start off the new year!
