Pedro proposes to Darlene in Sever do Vouga, Portugal

Over the summer, my wife and I took a trip to Portugal with a couple friends. At the airport when we were departing Newark, Pedro told me he was going to be proposing during our trip, and he wanted me to take pictures when it happened. To say I was thrilled was an understatement; I couldn’t wait for the moment to come.

On our last full day in Portugal, we were in Sever do Vouga for what Darlene thought was going to be a nice bike ride on an old railroad line that has been converted to a path for runners and bikers. About 3 miles into the bike ride, we rode over a tall bridge crossing a scenic river, and Pedro wanted to stop to take a couple pictures. The moment was here!

Pedro went out and took a selfie with Darlene, and then Darlene began to make her way back to her bike to continue. Pedro reached into his pocket, got the ring out, dropped down to one knee, and the rest is history. Darlene said yes and, once the initial surprise wore off, realized that I was in on the plan and had just captured her marriage proposal.

It was a pretty spectacular end to an amazing vacation with some great friends!
