Alex & Katy | Country Club Engagement

Alex and Katy are a sweet, vibrant, and down-to-earth couple. I met Alex and Katy in the coffee shop as usual and right from the start we clicked. Naturally, I had to hear their engagement story. I’m sure Katy had told the story a million times before to all her friends so we gave her a break and let Alex tell it. It’s easy to see by the way they look at each other and tell the story that they’re so in love ♥

Alex and Katy are so adorable and I love how their story starts: Alex and Katy grew up together as next door neighbours. After getting approval from Katie’s dad, Alex decided that he would ask for her hand on the eve of her birthday. That same night Katie invited some friends to celebrate her birthday and one girl was even going to stay the night. Alex anxiously waited for a chance to get Katy alone. Fearing that he would either loose his nerve or opportunity, he asked Katie to walk him home taking a short detour through the bordering golf course. Alex had prepared chocolate covered strawberries and sparkling wine which Katy never questioned since it was her birthday. While they were enjoying each others company at hole number 1, Alex broke the question. She said YES of course! And as luck would have it, the ring box came with a small light inside. How could a girl say no to the boy next door with a sparkling ring under the stars! ♥

They both graduated from OSU and are big Cowboy fans, so we had to get a few shots at their Alma mater. Alex is now a mechanical engineer while Katy is finishing up her masters in early childhood education. Then it was off to the golf course! What better place to take pictures then where it all began. Not only was this the place where Alex proposed but they had spent many nights here talking under the stars. Sweeeet! ♥

The light on the golf course was stunning! Shining through the trees, over the hills, and reflecting off the pond…it truly felt like there was magic in the air. Do visit their Event Page for more of their fun e-session photos. ;)
