It’s about time it feels like summer! A few weeks ago, we had another beautiful warm summer day, and Josh and I traveled down to the University of Connecticut, for Liz & Matt’s engagement session. I was so excited when Liz told me that she had rented not one, but two dresses from Rent The Runway for their session. Honestly, how often do you get a chance to really dress up in something you would never buy for yourself and treat yourself to a date night?
We met Liz & Matt through the power of social media, when Liz had seen and loved Ali & Joe‘s wedding photos, then Christina & Stephen‘s (Liz knew both of them from different parts of life!). We later found out she and Matt also knew one of our amazing 2015 couples, Meghan & Erik. Talk about a small world! When Josh and I arrived to meet them for a glass of wine before we started, we both snuck a look at each other and nodded that this was going to be a good one, and we were right. Liz has an absolutely infectious smile that lights up the room, and Matt keeps her laughing and smiling all the time. We had a blast exploring the UConn campus with them (you guys, there’s a perfect tree swing there, with a message reminding everyone who uses it “you are awesome!”), and we’re so happy to share some of our favorite images from their session.
Thank you to Jamie Pressman 221 Post for some gorgeous hair and makeup!
Matt asked Liz to marry him this past September by letting her think they were going out for just a regular dinner date. What Liz didn’t know was that their friends and family were peeking down on them from just above, and before they ordered, Matt got down on one knee. After Liz said yes, Matt brought her upstairs to celebrate with everyone! I love how she started to giggle hearing the story again, as if she were actually there, living the moment over again.
As the sun began to set, we headed up to Horsebarn hill just off campus.
Liz & Matt, we are so pumped for your wedding next year! It’s going to be a blast!
