From Lisa...

We met at a country western girl bar. Super romantic right? It almost didn't happen, though. Erica had come with her neighbor and her neighbor and I were talking about our mutual love for crafting so she added me on her Facebook. In the midst of our imbibing, they disappeared shortly after without saying goodbye. They thought I ditched them, so they ditched me! Remembering that I had her neighbor's Facebook I "stalked" her and sent her a message the next night asking her out. She said she had work the next morning.  I wasn't sure if she was into me or not but I didn't let it bother me.

One day for happy hour I met my friend at a local winebar, Postino. We both joked that this was Erica's  last chance to date me so I texted Erica to meet us at Postino. Well, happy hour turned into one of the best dates ever! After my friend left, we closed down the restaurant and sat for hours over wine and ended up sitting on the bus stop bench outside of the restaurant until dawn! The kicker? She didn't even kiss me goodnight when she left! However, the rest is history! Obviously, she fell madly in love with me! Haha!

Our proposal was in November after our two year mark. We went up to Prescott for a mini getaway and took our furbaby Oscar with us. We stayed in an awesome historic hotel, the Hassayampa Inn and had dinner in their romantic restaurant. At dinner she gave me one of her special storybooks that I usually get for my birthday or anniversaries. This one was titled "Our Story" and it included inside jokes, romantic thoughts and a timeline of our milestones and history; getting our first apartment, getting our dog, etc. At the end she asked me if I could imagine spending my life with her but she hadn't asked yet! After dinner we were walking around the town square with our pup and that's when she popped the question. She was so nervous!  Of course, I said yes! A few months later I asked her and then a year later I re-asked her but that's a whole other story!!

From the grooms-to-be...    

We met on the internet in 2005 and after short time, we decided to meet in person. Didier asked me out to a wine bar for our first date (he doesn't drink) & it was, as the french say, a "coup de foudre"...love at first sight! I called him my Prince and he even lived in a castle! We new from the start that we were made for one another. I quickly moved into the castle and we started our life as two.  

We always knew we wanted to marry, though for a long time in France, it was not legal.  Then in the beginning of 2013 the law passed allowing marriage for all, but it was just before it passed during a conversation with Didier's grandmother that we knew it was time. She asked us right away when we were getting married because she wanted to see it while she was still around to.  We set the date quickly after and started planning!

We aren't mad that winter is gone, but how cute are these guys?! We love their cozy winter engagement session!

The love story...

Jim & Dan met at Barksdale Theatre in the summer of 1998, during their stage production of "The Rocky Horror Show." That summer, Dan had just graduated from the University of Richmond and found his first professional experience working backstage on the production. After many years of performing in community theater, Jim had auditioned for his first professional role. It took Jim 6 auditions to land the role of Dr. Frank N' Furter, a dream of his. They met in late May. After shows, the cast would hang out at The Lighthouse, the Fan bar patronized by the Richmond theatre crowd. As the summer went by, eye contact across the room became a table in the corner for words shared by just the two of them. 

During a quick 45-second costume change one night, Jim raced to his place and asked Dan, "Do I have lipstick on my teeth?" Dan answered with a kiss. 16 years later, the couple is still bonded by that kiss. Since, they've worked in the arts and education sectors, giving back to the city that brought them together.

How they got engaged...

On the day it became legal to marry in Virginia, Dan surprised Jim. Home from work that day, Dan was about to take the dog for a walk, while Jim prepped work out. In a spur of the moment, Dan came upstairs and said, "Can I ask you a question?" Knowing he wanted to propose, Dan had stopped by a shop on the way home and picked up the only thing he could think off in the spur of the moment. He got down on one knee and proposed. Never has a Ring Pop tasted so sweet.

Baltimore Beauties

These two are adorable, plain and simple! We love their super fun engagement shoot! As per usual, Leah Moyers Photography nailed it! We asked Crystal, one of the brides-to-be, how the pair met...

"It was Thursday January 20, 2011. There was a new gay night at a local club that I wanted to check out. I begged my best friend to go with me and she finally gave in. I knew there wasn't going to be a lot of people because it was a Thursday and there was snow in the forecast for the night but I wanted to go anyway. I was there for about an hour and a half and I was bored to tears. I turned to ask my friend if she was ready to leave and all the hair on the back of my neck stood up. I turned around and entering the club was this chick that I knew I had to have. Jenn had on a leather jacket, black jeans, Doc Martens, and more swag than any girl I had come across in the last year. I decided to order a drink and work up the nerve to talk to her. As I was ordering my drink she walks up next to me and when I open my mouth to speak to her she says hi and asks me to go dance with her friend. I was so shocked that I just went to the dance floor and danced with her friend. Later when I was leaving Jenn came over to thank me and I proceeded to tell her how I was insulted about being pawned off to her buddy. In the middle of my rant she puts her cell phone in my hand and tells me to give her my phone number. Not many things shock me but this woman had managed to do that twice in one night so I gave her my number. I am not one to be outdone so I did tell her that if she didn't call me that night not to bother to call me at all. We stayed on the phone until 3am, and that is how it all began!"

An Enchanting Engagement

There is no more romantic location than the New York Public Library! It's charming, mysterious, and grand. A person could get lost in the beautiful nuances and secrets that this historic building holds and that's just what these sweethearts did! We love how enamored these two are by one another!

Picnic Proposal

There is something so sweet about two lovebirds enjoying a picnic on a crisp fall day. The inspiration behind this shoot came from Irish coffees, cozy sweaters, and the heart-warming look on a guy’s face when the man of his dreams asks for his hand in marriage. The handsome lad strumming along on the ukulele makes for a picture perfect afternoon!
