Kevin and Samantha celebrated their engagement with fresh, fun country morning style. The hobby farm owned by a family friend of the photographer was the perfect place for a vintage farm engagement session. The resident farm kitty stopped by to see what they were having for breakfast. So cute. I absolutely love the table of scones, strawberries and homemade jam, the early morning light, and the sense of joy these two emit through the camera. Read below for how they met, and the amazing proposal story involving a treasure hunt of sorts through Boston.
Before the Ring (from the bride):
Kevin and I were introduced to each other in a very rare way. Kevin is a 2003 Graduate of Wentworth Institute of Technology in Boston, MA. I myself am also a graduate of Wentworth Institute of Technology however, a few years after, in 2012. We met by sharing our love of organized sports at Wentworth’s varsity volleyball program. We both played for the program while in college and when we eventually met we realized there was a spark. Kevin used his resources to get my cell phone number and took the first step at sending me a random text- I didn’t even have his number or know who was texting me. When I responded and found out it was him it was history in the making from there. We texted back and forth through the night, sent messages online for several weeks and he finally, after much anticipation, asked me on a date! Our lives changed after that date and we were and still are inseparable!
Kevin proposed to Samantha in a very creative way, a sort of treasure hunt, you could say. One day when Samantha was about to leave work for the day, a man in a tuxedo showed up with a note from Kevin and a limo waiting outside. The note said sweet things and where to drive next. At each stop (all places special to them from memorable moments in their relationship) there was a new note leading to the next place. After the seventh note, on the way to the last stop, she realized there were letters on the backs of the notes. Sitting in the back of the limo, she turned them all over to spell out M-A-R-R-Y-M-E.
When the limo arrived at this last stop, Samantha stepped out onto the Cambridge Parkway River Walk where Kevin was standing inside a heart of lit candles which were laid out on the ground. Samantha could barely contain herself, tears of joy streaming. Samantha’s tears actually forced Kevin to speed up his speech causing him to skip over some parts he had been rehearsing for who knows how long! Finally, Kevin got down on one knee and asked “Will you marry me?” in which Samantha replied the best she could through the tears, “Yes!”
Kevin & Samantha then popped a bottle of champagne and called family to let them know the news. Samantha’s family finally responding to her texts & phone calls! To continue the celebration the newly engaged couple had a fantastic meal at Del Frisco’s. Without missing a single detail Kevin had arranged for a dozen roses and champagne to be waiting at their table when they arrived.
