Engagement

This Delaware engagement session at Brandywine Creek State Park couldn’t have been any better.  The fall day was incredible- there wasn’t a single cloud in the sky and the temperature was unusually warm and pleasant for fall.  It was my first meeting with Michelle and Chris.  I hate to use “cute” when not speaking of puppies and babies but, man, these two topped the adorable charts.

They met while attending the University of Delaware.  Interestingly, they had both attended the same high school (and were both on the track and field team) but never ran into one another.  Chris heard that there were other people from his alma mater at UDEL so he reached out to them via Facebook.

Michelle and Chris met up to go mini golfing and both felt a connection.  Michelle came home from the meeting and told her mother, “I don’t know in what way, but I know that Chris and I will be in each other’s lives for a long time.”

Brandywine Creek State Park is their place.  They live nearby and Chris comes to the park a few times a week for hiking, Frisbee golf, and the river.  He loves the river.  Michelle gets there often too.  This is her favorite view.

Michelle has the most incredible green eyes!

Chris bought the engagement ring without a plan.  Lucky for him, they were about to go off to France to visit his brother and attend a friend’s wedding.  It was on the second day there as they were walking around Nice that he popped the question.

I will be seeing them again next year for their wedding at Aldie Mansion.  After visiting a million venues, they came upon Aldie (thanks to Michelle’s dad) and knew that it was perfect!

Eddie is the publisher of Philly Current Magazine and the graphic designer head honcho at Loose Leaf Concepts who makes things pretty.  He might be a familiar face if you recall Lisa + Jeff’s Ritz Carlton fusion wedding (Eddie, Lisa’s brother, was her man of honor). Elise is a child life specialist at CHOP who gives little people better lives. Individually they’re pretty great.  When they met at a Philadelphia-based Canada Day party a few years ago, the universe did a happy dance (to Oh, Canada).  This was a great event because much happiness, dancing (so much dancing), and more Catholic/Jewish fusion was on the horizon. So I met up ...

In the flurry of getting the new website up (you love it?  So nice of you to say so!) there was a Society Hall engagement session that you never saw.  It’s honestly quite tragic since it was so magically perfect.  The weather, light, colors, location, and, oh right, THE COUPLE could not have been better!  As a belated treat, I give you Monica and Evan!  (Please hold your applause til the end.) We wandered around some great streets in Society Hill and Old City and ended playfully at the Spruce Street Harbor Park. These two have been together for 6 years.  They met at UCLA through a tutoring program where they were both mentors.  ...
