The Security Guard & The Cocktail Waitress

May 13, 2010

Amanda & Byron got married in April at The Lake House Inn – Perkasie, PA. The couple met while working at the Trocadero Theater in Philadelphia.  He was the though security guard and she was the box office girl/cocktail waitress.

Their proposal story is so adorable I had to share it before you see their awesome tattooed wedding. “On a hot summer day in July 2008 we decided to drive to Hamburg, PA and hike up to the Pinnacle, which overlooks the vast Lehigh Valley” Amanda told me. “We are not avid hikers – we just like nature.  

We started the hike up the trail which began as a small incline then transitioned to a steep climb.  Our hike turned into more or a crawl (mostly for Amanda) as we pulled ourselves up the ridiculously vertical trail.  After a few breaks and questioning our fate, we decided to hike back down the trail and find a nice place to relax and have our picnic. The climb down was just as difficult – but filled with laughter and exhaust we were having a wonderful time.”

“Once on flat ground we made our way to a small lake and found a shady spot to unwind.  It was a beautiful and peaceful moment as Byron began expressing his love and longing to spend the rest of our lives together.  I began to get very excited and a little teary eyed.  He then brought out a ring and popped the question!  I immediately said yes, cried, and asked where he had been keeping the ring on our hike!?  It was the most perfect setting and way from him to ask me to marry him.  Shortly after we called our family and friends to share our excitement!”
