Oh to wander through a magical forest…that’s how we thought we’d start our session. But these first images…this was scene II. Scene I was a torrential downpour! Like you would have though a hurricane was passing through with how hard the rain was coming down! So we figured we would try to wait it out. After about 5 minutes with no end in sight, I looked over at Alexia & Christian and said, ” I have an idea…”! Now most people who know me, know that when I have an idea it may put us in a precarious situation (I prefer to call it an adventure! lol), however it will always be incredibly fun and most definitely we will come away with some magical images!
Much to my delight…without even a hesitation they were up for the adventure!
Their sweet proposal story as shared by Alexia:
For about a year now we have been talking about going to The Standard to watch the sunset over a few drinks, but the timing was never right or rain would get in the way. A few days before the proposal, Christian mentioned wanting to go to The Standard after work on Friday. I immediately became excited and looked forward to Friday. On Thursday, Christian was looking up the weather and exclaimed that it would probably be raining Friday and we wouldn’t be able to see a sunset, but we could try going to a restaurant that participated in Miami Spice on Friday instead (we had been trying out a new Miami Spice restaurant every Friday since it started last month). I agreed so Christian went ahead and made reservations for The Bazaar in Miami Beach. We went to the restaurant and had an amazing meal. I excused myself to use the bathroom before the dessert menu came over. When I came back, they handed us our dessert menus and we chose two delicious options together. As we were waiting for the waiter to come back for our order, Christian began his love speech, got up from the table and knelt next to me to ask my hand in marriage! The waiters were in on it and took video of the whole thing 🙂
Get ready to feel all the romantic Notebook vibes!
*sigh* These two are all the couples goals! I cannot wait to photograph their destination wedding in the mountains of North Carolina!
