Dan and Emma crossed paths in life many moons before they met. They went through the same high school, but in different grades. They had friends mixed into the same crowds, but never quite reached one another during the younger era of their lives. It wasn’t until mid-college age, their early 20s, that the universe put them directly into one another’s path. Through mutual friends, and with no initial intention of becoming anything other than friends, a spark was lit! The rest is history! They have been through long-distance college years, the “attempting to adult years”, ups and downs years, through loss and love— they have made it here. And they are grateful every day that someone had a hand in creating their fate of forever.
Dan had Emma's family disguise his proposal as a “family dinner” so that they would all be present, and so Emma wouldn’t have a clue. He proposed at her brothers dining room table, surrounded by her loved ones. She'll never forget what was said: “The last 7-years have been literally the greatest years of my life. And although we’ve been through thick, thin, arguments, fights, laughter...new life coming into our lives...lives leaving. Nothing would make me happier then to spend the rest of my life with you.”
Sweet Rose was apart of their big day!
She’s become the Queen of their household; their “fur child”. Emma & Dan have been together 8.5 years. They love to curl up & watch “The Ranch” & random Rom Coms! They love pizza, and dates to their local diner and the bowling alley. The simple things make them happy, they don’t need extravagance or large tokens of love to know what they have is very real and that they value one another. Their invitations say “Nothing fancy, just Love,” and I think that truly defines them and their day, Laid back and loving!
The beautiful christmasy feels were so calming and comfortable and I was in heaven photographing their beautiful table and all the details.
Congratulations Emma and Dan! Thank you for allowing me to tell your sweet love story!
