After a year and a half of dating, he asked her dad Troy for his blessing before he started designing her ring. Gavin and Kelli, Summer’s mother, knew how sentimental Summer’s heart is. So, Gavin was given the honor by her mother, in receiving the diamond from her wedding ring, and making his own for Summer. Then the planning for the proposal began.

He picked Super Bowl Sunday because he knew she would never expect it! While they watched the game, both sets of parents snuck away to set up the dock. Her friend a photographer “needed content for her website” so Summer and Gavin got dressed up and headed to the dock on the pond of her family estate.

Summer still had no idea until she walked down and saw the white roses, and then Gavin got down on one knee. He was so nervous that he was going to drop the ring in the pond, that he just handed it to her after asking her to be his wife. Summer was still in shock but managed to tell him, of course, she would! With all the family around celebrating, Summer started calling everyone to tell them the good news.
