Georgia Vintage Picnic Engagement: Amanda & Jennifer
Amanda and Jenn met at work. Jennifer is a hairdresser whose coworker was Amanda’s hairdresser at the time. The coworker encouraged the two to connect through social media, and with some persistence, Jenn convinced Amanda to meet face to face. The two met for coffee, and Amanda knew the first time they hugged on that first date that they would spend the rest of their lives together.
The couple moved in to Amanda’s home together, and she knew she would propose that first week. Amanda set up twinkle lights while Jenn was at work, and made a fire out of a digital fireplace for ambiance. After enjoying Jenn’s favorite dinner, they retired to the family room where music was playing. Amanda gave Jenn a cookie cutter that had a note that said she was her missing puzzle piece (a reference to the first time they went to Jenn’s place and made Christmas cookies). Amanda told Jenn how much she loved her and that she wanted to spend the rest of her life with her, and Jenn said yes!
The engagement session was awesome, according to Amanda. Schellie from Six Hearts met with them prior to their session, determined their vision, and took them shopping to make it become a reality. Amanda and Jenn suggest that during an engagement session, couples be true to who they are. Their own pictures are a little more retro than standard, and are exactly what they had hoped for.
So far the wedding planning has been a lot of fun. Knowing and learning more about who they are as a couple and showing that to people means a lot. Of course, among the challenges is the financial aspect and the need to budget as best they can.
Amanda and Jenn suggest that other newly engaged couples take their time with the process. Don’t rush. Make sure you know what the other wants, and make your day very special. Also, enjoy it!
