We started off a little earlier than planned, because the whole day the weather had me on edge. Holly and Steve were up for anything and graciously let us start a couple minutes early. They had just flown in from their home in Utah and had been at Happy Hour with friends....for the last several hours!
As we started it was clear that the biggest problem was that Holly could not STOP SMILING, which is absolutely not a problem at all. We enjoyed our Friday night out on the Stone Arch Bridge with what turned out to be a beautiful sun set! Steve made one promise to Holly that day, he had to at least give 25% non goofy photos. With Steve cracking jokes and constantly making Holly laugh, I loved how their session turned out and I think the goofiness really made their engagement session fun! As you see from the photos we had a pretty good time all around.
Steve filled Holly's messages with goofy words to the point where she thought why not and gave them a chance at a first date. It wasn't until after they booked the second date that Holly started to get nervous because she realized she was really starting to like this guy. As their relationship progressed these two have moved all over the US staying together!
Now they live in Oregon and as they decided to get married the designed Holly's ring with family stones! After a little trial and error they finally decided on this beautiful ring that is literally one of a kind. After the ring was done it did not take long for Steve to propose! It was a day that was jam packed with activity and they finally got home. Even though both of them were pretty wiped out, Steve suggested they go for a run on the trail behind their house. Since Steve does not normally suggest running, it took a little convincing but they started on their run. Filled with a couple of beers, Steve didn't get too far due to a stitch in his side. When they stopped to a breather, Steve took the ring out of his pocket and proposed.
Their wedding will take place this fall in September at the Minnesota History Center and I could not be more excited!
