Durand Eastman Engagement, Rochester NY | Steven & Nicole

It was Eighth grade and time for math class. This was the scene where Nicole and Stephen first laid eyes on each other. The two instantly became friends as their best friends were dating and the four spent a ton of time together. That summer they decided to take their relationship to the next level. They dated for a few months and decided they were better off friends. While high school brought ups and downs, on’s and off’s to their romantic relationship, their ability to remain best friends never changed. Their days were filled with dances, a first kiss under the stars, and romantic gestures of flowers with teddy bears.

Soon it was time for college, and while they could not settle on a solid romance, they could not stay apart and frequently had to visit each other. Finally they decided to give each other another try. Fourth time is a charm, LOL. In April 2015 Stephen and Nicole purchase their home together. Not long after they adopted their dog Bo. On July 22, 2016 Stephen asked Nicole to take Bo for a walk with him. He wanted to go to the beach. Begrudgingly Nicole changed her clothes and agreed. After walking for a short while, Stephen sat down, he pulled out a photo book that he had made for Nicole. Photo books were not uncommon to them as they often made them to celebrate little milestones in the relationship. Nicole flipped through the book and coming to the last page she read “Will you marry me?” Stephen proceeded to one knee where he opened a box holding the most gorgeous ring. Nicole was breathless. A little ways down the beach stood their parents holding champagne. They celebrated a perfect commencement to a perfect friendship.

Nicole and Stephen will forever be joined next September.


Webster Park Proposal | Brandon + Courtney

To her it was a day like any other. Church, church summer picnic and then hanging out at Brandon’s house. She was hot, exhausted and just wanting to sleep, but her relentless friends forced her to participate in their Sunday plans. Reluctantly Courtney agreed. To no surprise their friends were of course “running late” so Brandon and Courtney proceeded on through the park without them.

Little did Courtney know her dear friends had been hard at work prepping the perfect spot where her world was about to change.

Brandon grabbed her and expressed his love. With a shriek and tears Courtney watched as a box was pulled from Brandon’s pocket and he dropped to one knee. Barely able to speak, she mustered up the words to say YES!

Congratulations Brandon & Courtney! Thank you so much for allowing me to share in this wonderful moment. All the best to you both…HAPPY WEDDING PLANNING!!!
