Happy Thursday, friends! I’m so excited to share Andrea & Mike’s romantic Garden of the Gods engagement session.
Mike surprised Andrea and proposed to her on December 23rd, 2018 at the Botanical Gardens in her home town in Kansas in front of her family. Just as her heart skipped a beat during that moment they jumped on wedding planning as asap! After meeting at Disney World in Orlando (they have the cutest love story that I’m low key obsessed with) as VIP tour guides they relocated to Missouri for Mike’s job, they realized that about anywhere they plan a wedding they will be planning a destination wedding since Andrea is from Kansas and Mike from the New England area. They tossed around all kinds of idea and finally settled on Colorado Springs, Colorado.
You see, almost a year ago to the date they were still living in Orlando and on a whim they looked up the cheapest flight from Orlando to anywhere that had snow and that put them in Colorado Springs, Colorado.
“It was honestly the perfect vacation. I think that’s when I really knew that I could see the rest of my life with him “ -Andrea
How ironic that just a year later they would be at the exact same place shooting their engagement pictures as they plan their Colorado destination wedding.
Andrea rented a dress from Rent The Runway and got her hair and makeup professionally done. This is once in a life time experience, you deserve to be pampered the added confidence will do wonders for your session. My professional recommendation- GO ALL OUT, GIRL!
I hope you guys are as obsessed with these as I am, which is a lot 😉
