Hayden & Brett | Palm Harbor Engagement Session | Lisa Otto Photography

December 31st, 2014

So here you are.  Highs school sweethearts, been together for 6 years, college together and ready to take on the world.  Graduation day comes.  He’s standing by your side like he has been all these years, you walk across that stage to get the diploma you’ve been working so hard for and then head back […]

 

So here you are.  Highs school sweethearts, been together for 6 years, college together and ready to take on the world.  Graduation day comes.  He’s standing by your side like he has been all these years, you walk across that stage to get the diploma you’ve been working so hard for and then head back down to the field.  You’re a Gator so it’s obligator to do you “chomp” picture but what you don’t see is what he has behind his back as he stands off to the side watching you, smiling. (not my pictures although I would of loved to have captured this!)

Then it happens…he drops to one knee and asks you to be his wife

UF proposal

 

That’s exactly what happened with Hayden when Brett proposed to her.

So fast forward to this week.  They’re both home on Christmas break so we had to sneak in their engagement session.  We headed to John Chestnut Park in Palm Harbor and wandered around for a while.
This wedding will be a tad different for me in one certain way.  See…Hayden’s mom is my mom’s best friend (so I also had the inside scoop on the proposal and knew it was coming).  Hayden and Brett are seriously the perfect fit.  They are the ying to each others yang, she never wipes a smile of her face and you can see the love between them.  I kid my groom’s because I always have to tell them during sessions to “kiss her forehead” or “kiss her temple lightly” but Brett?  Well he’d jump the gun and just do it lol

These two are seriously amazing and can’t wait for their wedding in September!!!

Savannah & Forrest | Philippe Park Wedding | Safety Harbor wedding photographer

I’ve been there.  Planning a wedding is seriously stressful if you let it be but trying to plan a wedding in 3 weeks, while your soon-to-be husband is still in the Army?  I give high five, major props to Savannah but she did an amazing job!  Savannah grew up wandering around Philippe Park so having their wedding there was a given.

Very simple, a small reception of cupcakes (I mean they’re the most important part, right?) and not a whole lot of whoopla but it was still a great day.  Like Savannah told me, she never thought she’d be planning her wedding in 3 weeks but life has a funny way of throwing things at you 🙂

The one thing that Savannah made sure to tell me was that she wanted a picture of Forrest’s face when she walked down the aisle.  I think the smirk pretty much nails it!!  I love a giddy groom!

They did a puzzle for the guest book.  Every guest signed a piece so when they put it all together, there everyone is.  Genius!!

And who can forget about the bling?  Well I sure can’t, especially with my ring addiction lol
