Allison + Matt { engaged! }

Back in September, Jamie and I took a quick roadtrip getaway to Traverse City.  We soaked up the last bits of summer sunshine, went wine tasting, and let Lexi run, play and swim.  Along the wine tour, we stopped at a scenic overlook to take a few pictures of the view.  We let Lexi out, and she ran over to this couple on scooters.  They of course loved her (heehee), so we started talking about her and their puppy Addie.  I noticed the girl’s amazing, super-sparkly ring on her hand, so I commented on how gorgeous it was.  She got a huge grin across her face and told us that they had gotten engaged the night before. I squealed with congratulations, asked to hear the story, and we talked a little longer.  A little sheepishly, I told her that I was a wedding photographer in Grand Rapids, and she excitedly said “that’s where we’re from!”  I offered to take a few pictures of them on their scooters, gave her my card, and we both went off to enjoy the rest of our mini vacations.  When I got home, I emailed the pictures to her, and we’ve been chatting ever since.  I absolutely adore these two, and I’m so glad we met that afternoon :)  Meet Allison and Matt:


(Are you as in-love with her right-hand flower ring as I am?  I want one. Bad. If anyone would like to find and buy me one, feel free to do so  ;)




She is so.breathtakingly.beautiful.









Fun  :)
