Fall Engagement Shoot

Fall Farm Engagement Shoot

After just seven months of dating, John knew Kate was the one, so he popped the question in — according to the bride — a “fairy tale-perfect proposal!” The place they chose for their engagement photos was not only naturally beautiful, but full of memories because it’s John’s family farm. After growing up there, it was a very special place …

The Perfect Surprise Proposal

Posted 12/06/2010 by in Getting Engaged \ 12 comments

I have such a great way to start the week today, a gorgeous surprise proposal, designed by Sarah of Brilliant Event Planning.  Christian flew all the way from Mexico to New York to create the perfect proposal for his lovely girlfriend Jilma.

Christian lured Jilma to Ramscale Studios, where inside waited an accoustic guitar and Spanish-speaking vocalist performing “Quieres Casar Conmigo” (Will …

Happiest day of my life…so far

Posted 08/27/2010 by in Getting Engaged, Local \ Leave a comment

The night before the big day, Mike insisted that we go hiking the next morning. His reasoning was that the weather is so nice now and it will get way too hot to go soon. I suggested going to Superstition because we had never been there together before, but he insisted on going to South Mountain and he insisted that …


Proposal Caught on Video

When Brad from Shaking Hands Productions (he’s a fabulous Virginia-based videographer, go have a look!) emailed me with his proposal story, I knew I had to share it with you.  While Brad’s girlfriend Lyndsey was modeling for one of his videos Brad surprised her by proposing and Adam Miller caught the moment on video.   I teared up watching!

My proposal to Lyndsey from …


Ode to the Blue Ring

Posted 10/20/2009 by in Getting Engaged, What To Wear \ 21 comments

Mr. had a hard time with the fact that I did NOT want a diamond. He thought I was only trying to be nice and “settling” for an aquamarine since a diamond was too expensive. Not at all. I completely trusted his judgment on what he wanted to spend. Even if I could have any ring in the world, regardless …

Unconventional from the Start

Hi everyone! I’m thrilled to be among the fantastic group of women on EAD who have documented their respective journeys down the aisle. You might already know a bit of my wedding story if you followed my wedding blog Eat, Drink, Marry, which I began shortly after our engagement and continued through our wedding over Memorial Day weekend. During our …

It was the 7 mile hike that threw me off…

Every winter for the past few years, Brian and I take a mini-vacation to the mountains for a long weekend. This all started because Brian is a professional baseball player and it is impossible to shop for a person that lives out of a suitcase for six to eight months of the year. I was worried that whatever I got …

Our Engagement & Inspiration

Posted 07/09/2009 by in Getting Engaged, Inspiration \ Leave a comment

As I mentioned in [intlink id=”13857″ type=”post”]my previous post[/intlink], Mr. popped the question while we were in Spain. We split our 10 days there between Madrid, Sevilla, and Barcelona. Now, I’m not saying that I thought he was going to propose, and I’m certainly not saying that I didn’t think he was going to propose, but I think it’s better …

Ed Note: I’m so excited to introduce another blogger to the EAD crew – Juel!  I know you’re going to love her as much as I do.  And now, I’ll let her talk!…

What better introduction than an alliteration? My 4th grade Language Arts teacher would be proud! (Thanks Mrs. Royer)

I wasn’t engaged when I discovered wedding blogs, but then again, …
