The Saugatuck Deer Photobombed a Michigan Couple’s Proposal
Because of course he did.
Grayling resident Colbie Wakeley had just been proposed to by her boyfriend of more than two years, Jake Lee from Hudsonville.
He had arranged for a romantic proposal at Saugatuck Dunes State Park last Wednesday night, complete with a "marry me" sign and candles in mason jars. What he DIDN'T arrange for was a surprise appearance by the infamous people-friendly deer that just recently made the news for crashing a beach party.
The deer was caught on camera, smelling the candles and photobombing the shoot. The couple didn't try to wave him away; he even allowed them to pet him, just like he did the beachgoers on July 6th.
Jake even posted this video to the naysayers on his Facebook:
The question is, will he show up for the wedding?
Big thanks to Colbie and Jake for allowing us to share their photos!
