Keith proposed at one of their favorite little restaurants in Charlotte called Cajun Queen. Ariel was knee-deep in a two week trial (they are both civil litigation attorneys), so Keith decided to pamper her with a spa day and dinner over the first weekend of trial. He Skyped her family in at the restaurant (which wasn't unusual because Ariel talks to them constantly), but then he got down on one knee as the server came in with a camera that he'd given her prior to entering the restaurant. He proposed and the server captured the moment!
When asked about their engagement shoot and wedding plans, Keith and Ariel say, "We just wanted a session full of color, and with the city of Charlotte as our backdrop. We're looking forward to celebrating our love at our wedding with those who are closest to us."
