We’re back this afternoon with a sweet little engagement session from Jeffrey Ocampo Photography. Jeff explained that Ronalyn & Chris love living and working in Old Town Alexandria, and so they are using it as the backdrop for their entire wedding theme. They met in college and their friendship eventually blossomed into more. I’m pretty much in love with Ronalyn’s style (that mustard hat, the top bun) and who can say no to an engagement session that features an adorable Corgi too !?  Check out their entire engagement session and love story (including a fun family BBQ proposal) below!

“How we met” told from Ronalyn:

Ronalyn and Chris met at Virginia Commonwealth University 10 years ago.  At a party one evening, Ronalyn engaged in an unusual conversation with mutual friends — the subject?  Her bed.  Apparently, it’s too small to be a Queen, but too big to be a Full.  Chris rudely interrupted and said, “well, then it must be Princess-sized.”  *Wink wink*

Their friendship blossomed shortly after, but when Chris revealed his true feelings, Ronalyn freaked out and ignored him for about a month and now they’re set to marry on November 2014.  They live in Old Town Alexandria with their corgi, Kirby.

“Proposal story” told by Chris:

Ronalyn has always said she wants her friends and family to be present when I propose.  She had planned our annual birthday BBQ bash months prior and I knew this was my moment.  Otherwise, I would have to plan a huge unassuming party or get-together.  So, I purchased the ring a month prior to the BBQ and told nobody.  I wanted to keep it a total surprise.  I finally proposed to her after we blew out our birthday candles and asked her to make my wish come true and marry me.
