You know those people who sometimes drag their feet? Who mull over decisions for weeks, months and years at a time?
Chris is not one of those people.
He had no doubt in his mind that Whitney was the one he wanted to be with for the rest of his life. So he did what any respectable suitor would do and asked for her father’s blessing to propose. (Sorry for getting Rude stuck in your head. I’m humming it while writing this whole post.) Whitney’s father happily agreed and welcomed Chris to the family, but only after offering the advice that Chris might not want to drag his feet, because Christmas was quickly approaching and Whitney was maybe getting a little expectant of a ring. Well, Chris took the advice quite seriously, and in less than 24 hours after seeking permission from her father, Chris had found a (GORGEOUS) ring and was on one knee, seeking Whitney’s permission to spend the rest of their lives together.
I love Chris’s decisiveness and the way it shows his love for Whitney. Pair it with his awesome since of humor and Whitney’s sweet demeanor and sharp wits and you’ve got one powerhouse duo. I met up with these two lovebirds earlier this week in Old Town Alexandria, the location where they met for the very first time. It was a hot and humid one, but Whitney and Chris made the whole evening SO fun and made it look so easy! I, for one, can’t wait for their PI DAY wedding celebration next March! For all you math nerds out there, they’ll be married on March 14, 2015 (or Pi to the 5th digit), so you know it’ll be a sweet one. For now, enjoy their gorgeous Alexandria engagement!
This little garden oasis in Old Town filled with gorgeous crepe myrtles was the perfect place to start out their session!
Dangit, y’all look good.
How about this gorgeous Tiffany’s ring?!
Just a field of flowers in Old Town ;)
WHITNEY!!! You are so beautiful. Those eyes, girl.
Love love love this.
Where they first met!
Whitney’s mom found these incredible coffee mugs. I love them!
Pi Day, anyone?
Though there had been storms forecasted for that evening, we ended up with a beautiful night on the Alexandria waterfront!
Seriously, you two could not be cuter.
Stun. Ners. Both of these are five star favorites!
