Maggie was on a ‘Girl’s Day’ with some friends over July 4th weekend. The day was packed with fun, drinks, and getting to know some new friends on the boat. One of the women along on the boat was named Barb, and she an Maggie realized they had many mutual friends and similarities. Barb mentioned her single son to Maggie, and she casually laughed it off. She was a Junior in college and no where near ready to settle down.
Maggie ran into Barb and her husband Rick several times that summer, and each time they reminded her that they had a single son she should meet. When Maggie finally found Adam on Facebook, she stalked him a little on the site before getting the nerve to friend request him. Seconds later he accepted and sent a message saying “Are you the Maggie who my mom has told me so much about?” (Clearly, she’d also been telling Adam about her.) They messaged back and forth for 2 weeks, when they finally decided to meet up one night. The conversation flowed perfectly, and they were lost in one another the entire evening. Before they knew it the bar was closing down around them, and she went to his house not wanting the evening to end. When Adam wasn’t looking she text her mom and said “I’m staying at Adam’s – I think I’m going to marry him!” (She still has this text on her phone) 2 weeks later he asked her to be his girlfriend.
After 3 years of dating, Maggie was getting ready to leave for New York when Adam arrived at her door to say goodbye with a bag of goodies for her trip. Magazines, candy, an envelope with a picture… she thought to herself “Did he seriously think I would miss him so much that he’d need to give me a photo of himself?”. But there inside was a photo of their dog Myla with “Will you marry Daddy?” on it. Adam was down on one knee with a gorgeous ring. I guess the saying is true, Mothers really do know best!
Enjoy a few beautiful images from their recent engagement session!
