Gouveia Vineyards Engagement | Ashley & Lou

What happened in Vegas didn't stay in Vegas. I mean how could it when it involved a gorgeous diamond ring and two people head over heels for one another getting engaged?! That's right, Lou asked Ashley to make him the happiest man in the world and marry him on the first night of their vacation in Vegas this past November!! What a way to kick off a celebratory vacation! And you can only imagine my excitement when Ashley contacted me when they got home later that week to share the awesome news and book their engagement session! I couldn't wait! 
 
So to be honest, I don't think I can quite begin to explain the connection and chemistry between Ashley and Lou without sounding like a complete cheeseball! But these two, they have something so special and uniquely their own. I think they could vacuum or rake leaves together and have a ball just because they are together. My face hurt from laughing so hard with these two during their engagement session at the gorgeous Gouveia Vineyards! Lou claimed to know exactly the right things to say to Ashley and Ashley's response was a pointed finger and a "you... oh you!" They are just so much fun to be around! 
 
These are some of my favorites from their engagement session!

SNEAK PEEK: CT Vineyard Engagement

One of my favorite places in Connecticut to photograph an engagement session is here. Right here. The rolling hills, vineyard vines and that LIGHT just never seem to disappoint. I had ridiculous amount of fun laughing and photographing Ashley and Lou and I can't wait to share more from their engagement session TOMORROW! But until then, here is a little peek! :)

NYC Highline Engagement | Joanna & John

Every year Joanna and John go to the wine and food festival in New York City together. How awesome is that? Now that is an annual tradition I could totally get into - so fun! It was something they looked forward to every single year starting the moment they left the festival each year. And last year would be a year they would never forget - their favorite time at the festival. Ever. 
 
Before going in and tasting and sampling the all the yummy food and drink, they decided to walk along the Highline and take in some of the sights and sounds of the city. Hand in hand they walked to the very spot where John knew he wanted to propose. It was at the very end of the Highland, at an area with beautiful gardens sponsored by none other then Tiffany & Co. The two of them sat on a bench and just as John began to pour out his heart to Joanna with the intention to propose right then and there, an unknowing tourist came down and sat down right next to them on the bench... and proceeded to take selfies!!! So, John continued to tell Joanna how much she meant to him... how much he cared for her. He continued to pour out his feelings and he was beginning to hear his heartbeat in his ears his heart was racing so fast as he tried to stall a little!! To John's relief, eventually the tourist got up and walked away and John ceased the opportunity to ask Joanna if she would spend the rest of her life with him! He put the most gorgeous Tiffany & Co diamond sparkler on her finger and the two jut couldn't contain their happiness! They enjoyed the festival that year like they hadn't before! With amazing wine and some of the most exquisite food, the festival felt like a party and celebration just for them!

Gouveia Vineyards Engagement | Ashley & Trent

The countdown to their Atlantic City trip was finally at zero days! And both of them couldn't wait to spend time with their family and friends to celebrate Ashley's birthday. But the trip to Atlantic City was going to be an even more special few days then Ashley even knew it would be. It did cross her mind that maybe, juuuust maybe Trent would propose to her while on the trip. But Trent had other, more surprising plans.  
 
Ashley came home from work and her mind was filled with that pre-trip To Do list that everyone has in their head the day before going on a trip. Finishing packing, fold laundry, run one last errand. So with her thoughts caught up in the To Dos she was totally caught off guard when she slowly opened the door to their home to find rose petals strewn on the floor leading to a room filled with twinkling candles. And Ashley and Trent will tell you that the moment was so filled with excitement and joy that they aren't even sure he ever actually asked her Will You Marry Me and if she ever really answered! Their hearts had spoken for themselves and the trip ended up being a celebration with their loved ones of their engagement! 
 
Now Chris and I are counting down the days until their Newport wedding next year! : )

Fairfield Engagement Session | Bill & Cassandra

The rainclouds passed over just in time, leaving the sweet smell of apples and cool blue clouds in its wake. Golden sunbeams pieced through the mosaic of clouds, leaving a scene that looked like it was straight out of an artist's painting. Right there on top of the mountain overlooking the rows of apples and autumn leaves, it was the perfect spot for a picnic. And not just any picnic, but one that entailed apples and sugar coated cider donuts. Because that's just how Bill and Cassandra roll! : )  
 
Between sugary bites, they reminisced about how they met and their first date. And of course when remembering their first date, Cassandra reminded Bill, who had not forgotten, when he was saying goodnight he leaned in and kissed her on the forehead. Yes, the forehead. Cassandra laughed as she said she thought it was sweet but had been hoping for a kiss on the lips! Bill couldn't help but smile as he remembered feeling like an idiot after he did it and thought to himself, what was I think! as he walked away. But this first date lead to many more... 
 
With these two, there is never a lack of sweet stories and laughter. Because no matter where they are or what is around them, these two soak in and live in every moment. When they are together, everything around melts into the background. You can't help but smile when you see how truly happy and in love these two are. I had so much fun with these two during their apple orchard engagement session and I am counting down the months until their wedding next summer!
