I love Melina and Andrew’s engagement session. The two couldn’t hide how much they love one another even if they tried, and inspire of the cold weather their session was fun and utterly romantic : ) They wanted to make sure Jack, their adorable puggle, was a part of their photos since he is their first baby! He’s so freakin’ cute who could resist?
Melina and Andrew were smitten with one another from the day they met. It took a few colleagues attempting to set them up and a little courage before Andrew finally asked Melina out, but here they are having just celebrated 3 years together. This day was coming, and Melina knew it… it was just a matter of when. The day that Andrew proposed was such an emotional day in Melina’s life for many reasons. Melina was graduating with her MBA, and this was the perfect day for surprises and celebration. Andrew had picked out a beautiful Pandora charm bracelet with a graduation hat, a little puppy resembling Jack, and something sparkly to give the morning of Melina’s graduation. He knew she would never expect another gift that day. This was also the 6th anniversary of her father’s passing. A day that ever since the couple starting dating Andrew has made it a point for them to do something to celebrate life instead of mourning the loss. Over dinner that night, in front of both of their families, Andrew got down on one knee and proposed. As Melina put it, “It was the perfect culmination and celebration of life and love”.
I am very excited for Melina and Andrew’s July 21st wedding at David’s Country Inn in Hackettstown, NJ. It’s going to be simply beautiful!
