Chester County Engagement Photographer | Valley Forge National Park | Lily + Greg
This is a story of high school sweethearts. Lily and Greg were lab partners in physics class. She took him to her junior prom, he took her to his senior prom, they went on an official first date, and I got to hang out with them on a blustery fall day 5 years later.
Greg went off to Penn State for college. He came back that fall on a surprise visit and asked her to be his girlfriend.
Lily went to Villanova and they continued their relationship long distance. Greg knew within a year of dating that she was the one he was going to marry.
The gorgeous ring (blue diamonds + his grandmother’s center stone) was in his possession for 8 days when he popped the question. They had gone to dinner and came home, sitting on the sofa together, when he asked her to marry him. He had been sick earlier that week and put the ring in the back of the kitchen cabinet to hide it. He was petrified that she would see the bag when Lily came over and was searching for pots and pans to make him food. Crisis averted and she missed it.
The two will be married at St. Thomas of Villanova next October. I’m hoping this next year flies by. I can’t wait to see them again!
