Brittney and Joshua are getting married in New Orleans this Friday, and I can’t wait! These two lovebirds are such a joy to work with. I know this celebration will be a blast for everyone. Enjoy a few images from their New Orleans City Park engagement portrait session.
Here’s a little more of their story in their own words:
Q. Where did you go on your first date?
Q. Tell us about the proposal. We want all the details!
A. We had a family trip planned with the Davidsons to go to Mackinac Island in Michigan this summer. When we arrived at the Grand Hotel, our room was actually the Jaqueline Kennedy suite. This hotel has the biggest front porch in the country on an island where no vehicles are allowed. After changing for tea, we went down to the front porch to take pictures and wait on Josh’s parents to arrive. As we were walking hand in hand on the porch he told me that he always wanted to propose but that he wanted to wait until the moment was perfect. We got to the edge of the porch overlooking the island and all of the beautiful flowers and he said he had a few surprises for me. First, he said he wanted to spend his life with me. He pulled out a box, got down on one knee, and said my full name and asked me to be his wife! Through tears, I shook my head yes and saw my second surprise… The exact ring that brought me to tears a few months before when we first started searching for rings…. But was twice his budget. I reached for my love and he stood up to give me a big hug and as he went to tell me that I had a third surprise, I saw both of our parents standing over his shoulder. He surprised me with family being there to see the entire thing and celebrate with us. In addition, his sister Kelsey and her boyfriend Spencer took amazing photos of the entire thing. It was the most magical day of my life. We followed the afternoon with a fancy 5 course dinner with our families.
Q. Favorite things to do together.
A. Walk our two schnauzers, travel, cook dinner together, get addicted to a tv series and finish it as quickly as possible, going to church
Q. What is your favorite spot to grab grub together?
