Emily and Levi are absolutely the best together. I had the opportunity to hang out with them and their adorable doggie on Tuesday at Loose Park. Leading up to the session, rain was in the forecast, but we thought it would hold out. Nope. About halfway through, it started pouring on us. I’m still so happy with what we were able to capture though!
Emily and Levi met on a blind date in high school and have been inseparable for the past 6 years! They’re getting married next June at one of my favorite venues, The Farms at Woodend Springs, and I’m super excited for their day.
Thanks for hanging out with me at Loose Park, rain and all. Enjoy your full preview!
– Hear from the couple –
How did he/she propose?
He proposed in Portofino, Italy after a very fancy meal. We walked down into the port because he had found out during dinner that the beach he had planned to propose on was closed. It was a beautiful night and the sun was just setting and after he proposed, we hugged and then we heard applause like we were in an arena. We were both surprised as we noticed/remembered that the whole port is lined with restaurants and people eating outside and we were right in the center. Lucky for us, a lot of people took pictures and a photographer just happened to be eating at one of those restaurants too. He got some lovely pictures and sent them to us. It was honestly unbelievable.
Question for the bride: what do you love most about him?
I love his smile. He is someone whose happiness truly begins in his soul and can fill a room. He can always make me smile, no matter what. He believes in me 110% and I always feel his support in everything I do or dream to do. I also really love his playful and positive attitude. It make everything we do so much fun. He will ask me to dance with him in the middle of a crowd, or in an empty field, completely on impulse and just because he feels it in his heart and then I feel it too. I love that.
Question for the groom: what do you love most about her?
I love her creative mind and her completely kind heart. I love that I feel my absolute happiest when I’m with her. I love that she will just look at me and smile with her beautiful smile. When we are on an adventure she always finds the most joy in the small things in a beautiful place that brings out even more beauty. She brings out the honest best in me and always encourages me to do my absolute best and supports my dreams.
What’s your favorite part about wedding planning?
We just really like getting to plan something so big together. It’s a fun adventure!
What are you looking forward to most about your big day?
We can’t wait to look into each others eyes at the alter and see the love there, knowing that we finally have forever.
