Today’s Virginia engagement pictures have me wanting Fall PRETTY badly. I am going to the beach in a few weeks (vacation! woo hoo!) but around this time every year, I get a it fed up with the humidity and heat and long for the cool, crisp weather of Fall. I mean plaid is just the best thing ever – and Grace & Kyle both rock a few iterations of some great plaid engagement outfits. Thanks to A Lovely Photo for sharing!

They are both William & Mary graduates, and wanted their engagement session taken on campus and the historic downtown area. This was the perfect fall afternoon to run around town and have fun . Grace and Kyle are getting married next August with a ceremony at the Wrenn Chapel, and a reception following at the Williamsburg Winery.
From the bride, their story:
First, we were married. Second, we were roommates. Now, we’re soulmates. We met at the College of William and Mary playing ultimate frisbee. Kyle was on the men’s team, Grace was on the women’s team, and we were good friends for a few years. As a joke one Valentine’s Day, Kyle “proposed” and Grace said yes! After that, the longstanding joke was that we were husband and wife anytime we were together. Then, the summer after Kyle graduated, Grace needed a place to live, so we spent the summer as roommates in Williamsburg. That summer, we became best friends.

Before the next semester when Grace would be a senior and Kyle would start graduate school, we both spent time at home, apart from each other. The funny thing was, Kyle missed his “wife,” and Grace missed her “husband”—a lot. Shortly after returning to school, we started dating, and haven’t looked back. After dating for four and a half years, we were in Washington D.C. doing a Ravenchase pubs and puzzles scavenger hunt. After dominating the scavenger hunt (and with a little liquid courage), we walked to the Washington Monument where Kyle dropped to one knee.
We’ve been engaged now for eight months and are looking forward to the rest of our lives together. We want to get married in Williamsburg because it is where we became best friends and fell in love.
