During a fun urban photoshoot, Erika and Melissa celebrated their engagement – one that was a complete surprise to Erika!
How long have you been together, and how did you meet?
We dated for two years, were engaged for a little over one, and married for one and a half years. We met at my summer job and her former job and started talking every day and then realized there might be something more.
Tell us about the planning process for the proposal.
Melissa was planning everything because she wanted to keep it a secret. But all the while trying to throw Erika off as far as when or where. I had initially thought to propose on a trip we were planning to Colorado, but I was so worried that Erika would think I was proposing, so I switched it.
Tell us about the engagement ring experience.
The rings were custom-made by Melissa’s uncle. Since he is an uncle, he knew what might look best with the budget available. He also made the wedding rings and made everything so personal and fit for us.
Lastly, is there anything else you’d like to share with us?
We could not have asked for anything better. Our families were 100% in support and did everything in their power to make us feel loved and special. Our friends made sure we could have the support continuing throughout the entire courting process and our married life. The special people we have in our lives will never know how much their support and love means to us.
Erika from Light Sky Photography, let us be silly throughout our engagement photos and raised the bar even higher in our wedding photos. She is someone who organizes memories that will last forever.
We are so lucky to have family and friends and artists who made our day special and continue making our wedding one of the happiest days in our lives.
