Engagement

I know you’re all wanting to see Stevie and Brandon’s wedding pictures but you’re just going to have to wait.  First comes the engagement pictures, taken around Rittenhouse Square just a few days before the big event.

Brandon mostly plays it cool while Stevie gleams with exuberance.  And it’s completely contagious.

They met after a show at the Khyber though there is debate over how it all went down.  He attempted a bad pickup line and she called him out on it.  Stevie, a fashion designer working at Urban Outfitters, found out that he was an art student and was smitten.

Regardless, they began seeing each other and realized that Stevie had even moved in and wasn’t going anywhere.

They share three cats of varying intelligence, watch TV, make animal noises at each other, and go on road trips.

Brandon would frequently propose to her in jest,  She always asked where the ring was.  One day he asked her to marry him and backed it up with a cupcake and a ring.  Stevie cried uncontrollably.  It was yes.
