On Black Friday of this past year, I found myself headed towards the Kentucky foothills for a bridal session. Matt and Chelsea, however, had more than I realized up their sleeve.
Just before Thanksgiving, my now sister-in-law reached out to me. She asked if I would take some photos of her and her husband. They wanted some updated images, so I suggested they wear their wedding attire and we would make it a bridal session. My favorite shoots are when couples get back into their wedding outfits. It brings back all of the emotions of the day along with the intimacy of the years they have spent married. So we set off for Berea, Kentucky, a little town in the foothills of Kentucky.
The bridal session went so well, and the Kentucky foothills made it even better. If you ever have a chance to visit Berea, I would highly suggest it! Matt and Chelsea walked to the car, but Aaron, my boyfriend at the time, came up to me asked me to walk over to the other side of the hill. I was confused, and really just wanted to get out of the cold, but he insisted that I come with him!
Aaron led me over to a blanket with pillows and candles. He pulled out a Bible and started reading scripture to me and then a note about what he felt the Lord had told him about our future. He got down on one knee and proposed with his grandmother’s engagement ring. We were engaged just under three months and married on February 9th! Yup, it was a super fast engagement, and we loved every second of it! So to all you brides who think it can’t be done, alas, we say it can!!!
I am so thankful for this sweet couple, my new siblings. They did a great job distracting me so that Aaron could get ready to ask me to be his bride!
