I’m not going to lie to you – this Monday feels especially tough. I didn’t get much sleep this weekend, and this constant thunderstorm weather is just totally messing with me. I don’t think I’ve ever craved a July 4th/mini-vacation like I am this week.
That being said – life goes on right? And for me that means, work, blogging & wedding planning – and hey, I can’t REALLY complain about those last too ;) Also – today’s “nerderiffic” Virginia engagement session really makes me happy. It includes a DIY, knitted viking hat & beard, and a Mario Bros inspired wedding website AND proposal! A special thanks to Saperstone Studios & Two Bright Lights for the submission.
Tim & Vanessa’s Offbeat Virginia Engagement & Mario Bros Inspire Proposal
How they met:
Vanessa and Tim connected over OKcupid when she realized his online profile contained a puzzle within the text about himself. Intrigued, she messaged him and several e mails later, set up their first date.
On their engagement session:
After the ‘pretty’ images were done and out of the way, we went back to their place for something more ‘them’. Vanessa had DIY’d a viking hat/beard for Tim while they were dating but thought it would be fun for her to wear the horns instead. More horse playing ensued to capture a series of fun, ‘them’ images.

The Proposal Story:
Now this just shows off how, for lack of a better term, nerderiffic and in tune the two of them are. Vanessa has a love for old school Mario so Tim hatched the plan to hack a Mario level and spell out with coins: “My Life Would Be This Empty Without You” This being a reference to the empty space after all the coins had been collected.
The full proposal story is here on their Mario Bros inspired wedding website! And now for the epic video of this Mario Bros proposal:
^Freakin’ amazing right?!?!?!
