Get ready for some gorgeous Coxhall Garden Engagement Pictures! This spring I hosted an engagement session giveaway on Facebook and received so many beautiful love stories. At the end of the week, Jeremy & Aimee won and it was SO sweet to meet them! Well, I should say meet Jeremy for the first time and see Aimee after 10 years from high school!! That was crazy, haha.
Here is their story, as told by Aimee: “Let me start off by saying we have been together for over 13 years and it took him that long to propose 😏🙌🏻
We were on a cruise to the Bahamas and he had this elaborate plan of how he was going to propose to me at dinner on formal night and had already spoken to our waiter. That night came and I decided that I wanted to go to a different restaurant on the ship instead so we made reservations to that one. After we made reservations he ran out of the room and said: “I have to check on something!” (He went to talk to the new waiter and they came up with the plan to have my ring around a firecracker thing to come out with my dessert). While he was gone I looked over the menu and changed my mind about that restaurant as well as there was nothing on the menu I would eat. When he finally came back I told him that I had changed my mind and that we could just do the buffet instead of going to dinner, but I definitely wanted to get photos done while we were dressed up. He then again “said I’ll be right back, I’m going to go get a drink and check on something.” (You would think I would have suspected something was up at this point, but being we have been together for so long I didn’t think anything of it). So we finally go and get our photos done and I was taking a photo by myself and then he had the photographer tell me to turn around, me thinking it was for another photo, and there he was down on one knee.
So you could say I definitely made him work for it without knowing what I was doing, but that’s what he gets for making me wait for 13 years 🤪💕”
I *LOVE* that even though the plans kept changing, Jeremy’s ultimate plan didn’t!! He was determined and totally surprised her. They decided to do a summer session here at Coxhall Gardens (one of my faaaavorite spots). We had a blast exploring the park. Aimee’s black dress is fiiiiire!
