What was the theme of your shoot?
Our engagement shoot theme was two-fold. The first half was designed to exude the royal, regal feel that we plan to have for the wedding itself-formal dress, etc. The second half was more laid-back and synonymous with our relaxed nature with each other.
Were there any memorable moments during the shoot?
Through the shoot as a whole, the most memorable moments was the amount of intimate moments that we were able to share with one another. At Coopers Hawk, I felt that was an intense passion for the two of us just being together. For the second half of the shoot at Hotel Arista, it was simply memorable just being able to incorporate our son into the shoot-having family shots and playing UNO� within the shoot. It was really inclusive of the family element of the three of us.
What are you most looking forward to about your wedding?
I believe that we are both looking forward to the pageantry and stateliness of the wedding. Personally, I am looking forward to seeing the woman that God has blessed me to care for and committing to love for the rest of my life. In addition, we both look forward to sharing our happiness with our family and friends.
Have you started planning your wedding?
Planning has been underway since about September 2016. We wanted to have enough time to pull everything together and do have a wonderful wedding planner, Mrs. Keosha Chandler, who has been helping us through every steps of the process. At the calendar has rolled into the spring, we have gotten to some of the more interesting elements of the wedding plans-guests lists, invites, tastings, décor, etc. Therefore, we are really excited for what is to come.
Congratulations to the happy couple! We wish you and wonderful wedding and marriage.
