Destination Desert Engagement Session with Steph Wahlig | Arizona Weddings Magazine

We are simply loving this stunning destination desert engagement session with Steph Wahlig. Kelsey and Sam met at a Fourth of July party. There was instant fireworks, and the couple’s love blossomed as they explored New York City together.

After two years of dating, Sam moved to Evanston, IL to attend business school, with the intention of Kelsey joining him in one year. The couple only lasted three months before Kelsey transferred campuses for her Doctorate program in Chinese Medicine, and they became roommates with Illinois driver’s licenses. When Sam graduated, they decided to continue their adventure as midwesterners and move to Chicago to start the next chapter of their lives together.

In the winter of 2017, Sam proposed to Kelsey on the roof of the Chicago Art Institute. Kelsey immediately said yes, and the two embarked on a full day of iconic Chicago musts that Sam had planned, including brunch over looking Millennium park, an improv comedy show at at Second City, dinner at their favorite restaurant Momotaro, dancing late into the night then topping it all off with a stay the Langham Hotel.
