Engagement: Ali & Sammi

From the couple: Ali and Sammi met (twice) in the fall of 2013, when they were both students at NYU Law School. Their first meeting took place at an event at the Stonewall Inn, hosted by the law school’s LGBT student group, aptly named “OUTLaw”, where, according to Ali, her very obvious romantic advances were rebuffed, and according to (an apparently oblivious) Sammi, a cute girl with a cool haircut was trying to make friends with her. When the ladies rendez-vous’d a second time (at—where else?—a school dance), thanks to the help of some mutual friends, the sparks were much more obvious. Sammi proposed first, just over two years later, while bringing Ali her weekly Saturday morning coffee in bed, and Ali returned the favor a week later, popping the question at the Met, in front of a gorgeous wall of windows looking out onto Central Park.

The couple, now both lawyers, live together in Greenwich Village, and wanted an engagement shoot that captured the spirit of the neighborhood where they live and where they fell in love. With the help of photographer Alicia Swedenborg, the ladies were able to realize their vision of a cozy downtown NYC winter wonderland shoot.

Engagement: Lauren & Christine

From Lauren: Christine proposed in July of 2013, setting up a day of activities alongside our closest family and friends. I was in utter shock she pulled of such a beautiful, detailed proposal without me having a clue. I naturally am a planner; I work as a corporate event planner and Christine is a nurse. Christine and I have been together for over 8 years now, and she is my rock.

The morning of our engagement started with a card on our nightstand, including a lyric to the Tristan Prettyman song “All I Want Is You” and a quick note to say she loves me. My best friend Nicole was waiting for me in the living room. There was then a 2nd note with another lyric in the song that sent me off to get a manicure. The notes followed each step of the way– nail salon, back to her Mom’s house where she picked out a couple outfits for me, all preparing me for her grand proposal.

I was dropped off back at our house where Christine stood waiting with a sign and the final lyric of the song “Will You Be My Bride?” We both immediately began to cry and I said yes without her having to utter a word! I called my mom to give her the good news, and little did I know, my mom and sister were waiting for me inside the house (they live in another state)! It was one surprise after another: 5 minutes later, there was a knock at the door from my 4 year old godchild holding the cutest “Congratulations” sign. The day continued with lunch at a local beachside restaurant with friends and family.

Fast forward two years, and we were finishing up our planning and preparing to head to Mexico for our big day. We decided to (finally) have some engagement photos taken. We brought our Maryland-based photographer up to New York for a beach/boardwalk session. Our wedding will be in Riviera Maya, Mexico, so of course we wanted our pup Bailey to be included as well. We couldn’t leave her out of  all the festivities!
