Amanda and Matt’s engagement session along the Scioto Mile in downtown Columbus was incredibly fun! After spending the evening with them, I would describe them as fun-loving, good natured and just SO genuinely happy! I especially admired how comfortable they are together! We laughed so much and I had such a fun time with them! It makes me just SO excited for wedding day!
A few of my other favorite things is of course, Amanda’s long, pink flowy dress! We had the perfect weather and it was hard to believe that just one week before this session, it was snowing! Ohio has some crazy weather! But the Scioto Mile sure gave us the most beautiful, glowing orange sunset during their engagement session!
My favorite part about Amanda and Matt’s story is actually how long they’ve known each other! They met a decade ago during their freshman year of high school! They both graduated from the same high school and college. The day Matt proposed to Amanda was during his family’s Christmas celebration! They had a fun day and when they got back to his parent’s house, Matt asked to get a photo of the two of them together as part of their yearly tradition. Once Matt’s Dad took the photo, Matt said the sweetest words…”Hang on a second, something is missing.” He went over to the tree and pulled a box out from the branches and asked Amanda to marry him in front of his family!!
The best part as that Matt didn’t hear Amanda say yes, because he was so nervous! haha! So a few minutes later, he asked her again, “So you said yes, right?” Ohhh what a sweet guy! My favorite part of their proposal story was learning how special Amanda’s ring is! There are 3 diamonds on it…who were from his great Aunt that meant so much to him! When Amanda learning that Matt wanted to give her his favorite Aunt’s diamonds and that he wanted his whole family there for the proposal- it meant the world to her!
Gahh I just can’t WAIT to be a part of such a special day for them! 2020 is a ways away, in the meantime, I hope you enjoy some of my favorites from their engagement session!
