On December 6, Luis planned a romantic proposal for Maddy at Elevation Rock Gym in Logan, Utah where the couple climbs together.
“Climbing is a huge part of me and Maddy’s lives,” he told The Huffington Post. “When we first met that’s basically all we did and we love climbing together whenever we get the chance.”
Photographer India Earl helped Luis formulate a plan, suggesting that they use string lights to add some warmth and ambiance to the space.
“At first Maddy was a little frightened because she was hanging up there in the air in the pitch black!” Luis told HuffPost. “After she realized what was going on she started to cry.
