Downtown Lexington Engagement Session: Dee & William

Bourbon & Brides Kentucky Wedding Photography

November 1, 2015

Dee and Will met during a summer advising conference. Dee was recruiting for the University of Kentucky Choirs and Will dropped by, asking about participating. They talked via Facebook until Will showed up in August. They reconnected during an a cappella group sing off and when Will sang his favorite song, Dee asked him out on a date.

Will proposed on the couple’s three-year anniversary on Sept. 8, 2015. They went to dinner and afterwards Will wanted to go driving. Dee suspected something was up. They drove to the place where they had their first date and got out. Will got down on one knee and proposed. Dee wishes he could remember what Will said, but he was overwhelmed and the moment was magical.

Will and Dee loved their engagement session and had so much fun. Megan, their photographer, made it very natural and authentic. They recommend that you get a photographer that cares about you as a couple and can convey that in his or her photographs. Looking at their photos, they feel like they depict them simply interacting like they normally would.

The grooms are finding wedding planning to be fun, but challenging. They are very musical, so incorporating music into the ceremony is the best part. Coming up with a budget has been the hardest part, especially with a guest list of 320 people.

Dee shared the following: 

“Our advice to newly engaged same-sex couples is to enjoy every second of your engagement. Don’t let the stresses of the wedding planning affect your relationship. With us being in school and graduating in May we really had to find a happy balance of school, wedding and ourselves. Don’t lose sight of why you are getting married. It’s for YOU, don’t let other people’s opinions dictate your big day!”
