Springtime Ohio Engagement Session


Happy Friday! I am so excited to show off a seriously adorable real engagement session here on Something Pretty to finish off this week. Amelia and Michael fell for each other swing dancing, and if that isn’t the cutest thing, I don’t know what is! Amelia’s roommate (who helped them get together in the first place!) happens to be a fabulous photographer, so she took this springtime engagement session in Ohio. Thank you so much to Lyndsay Angelia Photography for sharing these sweet pictures, and to the lovely bride-to-be for sharing her and Michael’s love story with me!

{The Beginning} Michael and I first met during our freshman year at Franciscan University when we were introduced by our mutual friend. One night, one of our friends was going to teach a group of us how to swing dance. We went to the little room in the fieldhouse and Michael started dancing with my roommate, Lyndsay. She knew I liked Michael, so she pretended she was tired and told him to dance with me. After that, we became dance partners and got to be really good friends. In the fall semester of our sophomore year, Michael asked me out!

{The Proposal} After a picnic, Michael asked if I wanted to go geocaching, which is a real-world, outdoor treasure hunting game using GPS-enabled devices. Participants navigate to a set of GPS coordinates and then attempt to find the geocache (container) hidden at that location. I agreed, so he checked his phone to see if there was one close by, and it said there was one on a trail. We started off on the trail till we came to a brook with a little bridge. He said it was somewhere on the bridge, so we both began to look. Eventually, he found it under the bridge, so he brought up the container and handed it to me, saying I could open it. When I opened it, rose petals and a ring box were inside, and then he got down on one knee and proposed!

{The Engagement Pictures} We got our engagement pictures taken around our college campus where we met, including a playground and golf course near the school.

{The Upcoming Wedding} We plan to get married on July 14th, 2012, at my church in Maine. Other than that, our plans have been on hold because of finals. Now that they are over, I will finally be able to plan some more!

What a sweet couple! For information about submitting real wedding and engagement pictures to be posted on Something Pretty, check out my Real Weddings page. :)

Have a fabulous weekend!
