Oh man, I hope you’re sitting down with a cup of coffee and blanket because this session is just too stinkin’ cute! Emily and Ian’s engagement session at Verona Park was spent laughing and loving in the tall grass and underneath some amazing willow trees. I met these two through my former boss because they actually live next door to each other. Their sweet little pup, Sandy, joined us for their engagement session where she wore the cutest bowtie. I think I love her a little extra because she reminds me of Lily, my Maltipoo! This down-to-earth couple was totally up for all of my crazy ideas, which made this session all the more fun.
They met in Ocean City, Maryland five years ago on a trip with some friends and got along so well that they have been together ever since. They ventured on the long distance path for two years traveling to and from NYC to PA to be together until they finally were able to move in together! They love their low-key nights like having dinner and seeing a movie or going mini golfing and getting ice cream.
Ian proposed to Emily on Christmas Eve by the Christmas tree. He asked if she wanted to open a present early, and she eagerly obliged. She said, “I closed my eyes and put out my hands only to open them and see Ian down on one knee. It was the perfect setting in our first Christmas in our new home.” What a dream!
Next June, they are getting married at the Upper Montclair Country Club and I can’t wait to see all of their special little touches, like the outdoor ceremony covered in greenery and lanterns! It’s going to be an amazing day, and I can’t wait to spend it with them. For now, enjoy their sweet engagement session!
