Whenever we meet with our couples, one of our favorite things to ask is how they got engaged. We get to hear some of the most thoughtful, special, and sometimes hilarious stories about how our grooms have pulled off surprising their brides. Madie and Gage were no exception!
It was Gage’s birthday and the couple was down in Florida with his family celebrating the occasion. Madie had hoped that he would be ‘popping the question’ soon but her mother assured her there was no way he would propose during his birthday trip. And Madie wholeheartedly agreed (nice work, mom! 😉 ).
Before leaving Nashville, the duo had talked about taking a sunset walk on the beach and maybe getting a photo or two together. So Madie had packed a white dress with that in mind, and Gage made sure to coordinate unsuspiciously.
The sun was setting and Madie was enjoying the views and searching the sand for shells, completely oblivious to Gage’s plans. Little did she know, he had a photographer positioned ready for the big moment. When he got down on one knee, Madie was so surprised and excited that it wasn’t until after a few minutes of joy and taking photos that they realized she hadn’t even said yes or put on her ring! She was SO surprised.
We had the best time hanging out with these two at Harlinsdale Farm for their engagement session! The leaves were just starting to show their fall colors, and Madie’s sweater popped perfectly against the autumnal landscape. Throughout our time together, it was so apparent how much they adore each other and how excited they are to start their forever together.
Madie and Gage, we are so excited to celebrate your forever with you next year. We already know that your wedding at Sycamore Farms is going to be beautiful–just like your engagement photos! Never forget this newly engaged joy 🙂
