Enchanted Forest Engagement
Brittany and Ricky met me out at Lake Louisa for what felt like the most enchanted engagement session! Up for an adventure, we scouted out a few new spots that felt purely magical!
How They Met
My sweethearts met back in 2012 at Runway Country while both were in high school. Friends for over three years, the two did not have their official first date until 2015. Their relationship in turn was built on a beautiful foundation of friendship that led to romance, and has grown stronger with each passing day.
What They Love Most
Brittany knew there was something special about Ricky since they day she met him. She fell in love with how big Ricky’s heart is, from the way he is cares for their relationship to the love and compassion he has for their families and friends. Ricky fell in love with how Brittany makes him a better person through pushing both him and herself to always learn, grow, and improve. She has truly become an inspiration to him.
Ricky knew he had found his soulmate and planned out his proposal to be during a spontaneous weekend adventure away at Islamorada. Calling to make dinner reservations with the plan in mind to propose after on the beach, he quickly needed to make a change in his plan as the restaurant was booked until three days out. Looking up the closest beach on their phones, the two decided they would watch the sunset at the beach and figure out dinner after. Unfortunately beach plans were sidetracked as well. Driving up, the two quickly realized that the beach was closed due to the latest hurricane and completely covered with seaweed and algae.
Deciding to head back to the resort, the two walked along the beach at nightfall when Ricky popped the question. Of course, Brittany was overwhelmed with emotion and pure joy, and of course said, “yes!” While the perfect plan may have not worked out, the perfect moment did and that is what matters. The two found love in one another, Brittany said yes, and a new celebratory plan ensued after at a local little restaurant right before it closed. Love in the end found its way!
Looking forward to capturing my sweethearts this March at Ever After Farms in Mims, Florida!
