Get ready to see some sweet, sweet love between Luke and Ashley! They are naturally just TOO cute and it overflowed into every image.
These two are college sweethearts from my alma mater. I have several mutual connections with them from taking classes with Luke's sister in college and I was a former roommate to the awesome gal that Ashley is currently living with, but this wedding planning process is the first time that I have gotten to know each of them myself. It's been a treat to learn more about them, their relationship, and the cute traditions they've started together. For instance, they set out to try every milkshake flavor at the local Snuffy's Malt Shop on Cleveland Ave. After crossing over twenty off their list and only have the "boring" ones left to go like blueberry, vanilla, and chocolate. I love it and now I know who to call when I need to satisfy my sweet tooth near campus - these two!
Taking their engagement session was extra dear to my heart because it was on my birthday. Couples share so many intimate moments with me at every milestone along the road to their marriage that it was really special for me to invite them in to celebrate one of my life milestones too. It is the best gift in the world to be around joyful couples who have one objective: spend time just loving on each other.
Plus mother nature gave us all a great gift too of sending the rain away for the weekend so that we could have a lush, spring day taking engagement photos at Hidden Falls Regional Park in St. Paul, MN. We kept them hidden from you here in this post so that you have all the more incentive to go out exploring them too ;)
Thanks for making my day so memorable, Ashley & Luke. You two are an incredible duo and I can't wait to keep celebrating with you at every step of the way.
