Vanessa & Nick | Glamorous Engagement

I had a vision for a glamorous engagement session in a pub. I found the perfect venue in The Piping Plover Gastropub, and the perfect couple in Vanessa and Nick. Then we found a stunning gown at The Wedding Loft and the scene was set!

Vanessa and Nick have a unique love story. When I asked how they met the answer was… walking down the street. How simple and perfect is that? Nick saw Vanessa walking with her friends and immediately rushed to this stranger and asked her to join him for drinks. She said yes and they’ve been together ever since. If that isn’t love at first sight, I don’t know what is!

When you first meet Vanessa and Nick, you can just tell that they’re so in love. They’ve built an amazing life together, opening two businesses, traveling and raising their beautiful dogs. When Nick looks at Vanessa, his whole demeanor changes, he’s truly head over heels for her. He knew he wanted to spend the rest of his life with her and he planned an impossibly romantic proposal.

He booked a dome cabin at Ridgeback Lodge, nestled in the beauty of nature. When they arrived he had will you marry me spelled out in candles by the outdoor hot tub, champagne at the ready to celebrate. Her answer was a resounding YES!

I had so much fun with Vanessa and Nick. They’re so naturally in tune with each other and I think it really shows. Below are a few of my favorites.

Congratulations to the happy couple! I know your wedding day will be amazing!
