Naomi won me over as soon as I read her inquiry! Naomi wrote, “I am a graphic designer and he is a high school history teacher. We’re a little goofy, a little quirky, fairly simple, he’s a little old-souled and I’m a little whimsy. The best illustration of us as a couple is he is a rock and I’m a balloon tied to him. I bring a little more excitement to his life, while he keeps me a little more grounded.”
When we met for their engagement session I started to see how true her statement really was. They are the perfect match and spending the evening with them felt like an evening with old friends. Of course we finished off the evening with some ice-cream from Penny’s ice-cream truck, like friends should.
Can I just tell you guys a little about how he proposed? It may be my favorite proposal ever.
So… Wilson mentioned to us that Naomi loves carnivals games and when they would play them together, she somehow managed to win them all… every time. So when the time came to ask Naomi to marry him, he gathered friends and family to help him turn a huge room into their own carnival. Wilson was smart enough to rig each game so that he would win each and every one. Each station he won a little prize for her (like a day trip to the zoo) and when they reached the last game he pulled out the ring for her prize!
How cuuute is that?! I’m just going to go ahead and drop the mic for him and walk away. Ha!
Guys, enjoy their engagement session and you’re gonna want to check back for their wedding photos at the beginning of September. I have no doubt that their Deer Park Camp wedding is going to be just as fabulous.
