What a weekend Romancers. The weather was nuts – one minute it was snowing and then next I am non-stop sneezing because everything is GROWING. Saturday was gorgeous and that was perfect because my lovely brides decided to have their wedding ceremony outdoors and it was gorgeous! Silje & Katie’s Woolly Mammoth wedding was a theater-geek’s dream (so I was right at home) but MAN is my body finally telling me to take it easy on the lifting and running around.Full disclosure: I had a hard time leaving the couch on yesterday ;)
We have some great posts planned for this week and Andy & I leave Thursday night for our Babymoon in NYC (!!!), after I have to report for Jury Duty (boo!). Today’s engagement session is REALLY cool though, it takes place in a clocktower! I love the drama and theatrics of this shoot, plus I love Christina & Sergio’s love story. Have a great week Romancers!
Christina and Sergio met in college in 2005 while both attended UMBC. They had sociology class together and had study sessions with a mutual friend. (Ironically, the sociology class was titled, “Human Sexuality from Cross-Cultural Perspectives”.) After years of friendship, they started dating in 2009. In Sergio’s words, “like all good things, we took our time.” After college, the continued to date while Christina went to culinary school and Sergio ran a restaurant with his family- they both share a passion for food.
After several years of dating, Sergio knew Christina was definitely the one for him and wanted to wait for the perfect moment to ask her to marry him. But the suspense was killing him and he couldn’t wait any longer. He popped the question one night in their Baltimore home, proposing with his mother’s wedding ring. Since his mother had passed away years earlier, this was an especially sentimental moment for both of them. Of course, she said yes!
