Dazzling Desert Engagement Session
We are so excited to be sharing our very own editor’s engagement session today on the blog! Amidst the bright Arizona scenery, Vanessa and Aaron’s desert engagement session shines even brighter. The couple’s love is showcased center stage in the stunning shots by Malone Sinclaire. Next to the Saguaro cactus, the couple looks absolutely radiant; with Vanessa in a gorgeous golden ruffled dress and Aaron in a dashing dress shirt and jeans. In other shots, Vanessa’s fringed white dress is a glowing background for the lush bouquet from dei-zinz fresh studio. The glow is matched in her radiant hair and makeup, done by Vidogi Salon, complemented by her tender smile towards Aaron. The sweet and loving couple met through Vanessa’s uncle, who introduced her to Aaron at her cousin’s rehearsal dinner. After meeting and chatting it up during Vanessa’s cousin’s wedding weekend, they continued talking on the phone for a while since Vanessa lived in Oklahoma and Aaron lived in Arizona. For their first official date, Aaron planned the perfect night of drinks at a local wine bar and dinner at an organic farm to table restaurant. Both Aaron and Vanessa knew how special their bond was and became an official couple that night. Their long distance relationship continued for six months before Vanessa moved to Arizona.
After two years together, in the fall of 2017, the couple made a trip to Colorado for Vanessa’s birthday and Aaron’s work. Little did Vanessa know that there was no work trip and Aaron had something else special planned for the trip. He suggested they go hiking in Vail, on their way to his work meetings, which Vanessa thought was a little odd but went along with it. Fall time in Colorado makes for some interesting hiking weather and soon enough, rain started sprinkling down just as the couple got to the top of the mountain. They decided to continue the hike and while Vanessa was taking pictures, Aaron motioned her over to the “Cold Feet” ski run. The serendipitous irony made the ski run the perfect place for Aaron to pop the question. Aaron didn’t have any cold feet, as he began telling Vanessa that she was “his person,” and pulled out the engagement ring. Completely surprised, Vanessa initially thought he was joking until she saw the ring and blacked out a little through her tears of joy. After she quickly said yes, the couple found shelter from the falling snow and celebrated their engagement for the entire trip.
The couple is planning their fall wedding with Malone Sinclaire.
