Dunia and Ryan’s Arboretum Park Engagement Session by Rachel Solomon Photography | Arizona Weddings Magazine

For Almost Married Monday, we are loving Dunia and Ryan’s gorgeous Arboretum Park Engagement Session with Rachel Solomon Photography that exudes lively and ethereal desert vibes.

Originally from Los Angeles, the couple spent the Christmas holiday with Ryan’s family in North Carolina. On Christmas Eve, the family went for a stroll before dinner. Along the way, Ryan pointed out a neighbor’s romantic, candle-lit dock. Dunia was apprehensive about approaching the private dock, but when Ryan pulled out a picture of the couple from under the first candle on the dock, Dunia caught on to what was happening. In addition to the picture were the words, “This is the love story of Dunia and Ryan.” Under every candle was an envelope with a picture and handwritten note. Opening the very last note which read “Will You Marry Me?” Ryan got down on one knee and proposed! As Dunia cried tears of joy, Ryan’s family embraced the couple and celebrated.
