Happy Friday Everyone! I’ve been so excited to share this engagement shoot with all of you that I’ve made their sneak peek my Facebook cover ever since. The funny thing is that the pecan orchard was actually a last minute decision made due to problems with our previous location but it worked out way way better! I love it when life gives you fun twists like this. Throw in a couple, madly in love, like Patrick & Bridgette and you get ooey-gooey gorgeous photos. ♥
These two have the cutest engagement story! You can tell that a boy is in love when he puts so much thought and effort into asking a girl that all important question. And I can’t think of a more thoughtful process than…a scavenger hunt! Oh goodie!
So it all started when Patrick wrote Bridgette a love letter on Valentine’s Day. While true and heartfelt, this letter was to set the stage. He followed this with a another letter a week later but wouldn’t let her open it right away. He let the suspense drag until one day he called Bridgette while she was out at dinner with friends and told her to open the letter.
These two have too much fun together! I love watching Patrick be goofy while Bridgette laughs and plays along.
This fateful letter included all the reasons that he loved her…but also pointed her to her next destination. Let me give you a quick background on this adorable couple. Their relationship has been largely characterized by stints of long distance relationship. Bridgette found herself moving around as they completed their degrees but all the while they stayed true to each other.
Now, this suspenseful letter led to a total of 5 letters and 5 locations, each representing a place when Bridgette was away from Patrick. I love it! I can’t wait for these two to get hitched next year!
Can’t get enough glowy orchard photos?! Me too! Trust me, I’ve posted more photos than normal for an e-session *grin*. And there are so many more that I wanted to post on the blog but you’ll just have to check them out in the slideshow on the Event Page. Enjoy the weekend!
