It was their one year anniversary of dating and the plan was set. Rachel thought she was only attending a tea party with her nieces, but unknown to her, Ryan had a big surprise planned!
After the tea party portion of the evening, they all settled in to watch Mulan. The opening credits began and Rachel prepared for the Disney magic to unfold. Little did she know, there was even more magic ahead than she ever imagined! Suddenly, the music changed and on the screen appeared…a picture of Rachel and Ryan! After a sweet slideshow, Ryan got down on one knee and asked Rachel to be his bride. Of course she said, “yes!”
This Sunday, just 6 weeks after that magical night, Rachel and Ryan will become husband and wife! With their wedding day quickly approaching, we knew we had to find a way to squeeze in their engagement session before they say, “I do!” Once we picked a date for their session, the pair suggested Brookview Ranch for the location. We were thrilled at the prospect of returning to such a beautiful property! What we didn’t know is that this isn’t just a beautiful property to Rachel and Ryan. It is where they spent the first couple weeks of their relationship getting to know each other. They actually shared their first kiss here, too!
We had so much fun with this sweet couple, capturing their fun personalities, the way they make each other smile and laugh at the smallest joke, and their joy together in these last few weeks as fiancés.
Rachel and Ryan, we are so excited for you to begin your forever together. In just 4 more days, you will be husband and wife! We hope these photos serve as a reminder of how your love began so that you never lose those butterflies or the excitement of all that is ahead of you. Congratulations and we can’t wait to celebrate with you both at your ‘second wedding’ later this year!
