Ernesto’s wine bar in Soulard was a local favorite for Cassidy and her friends. After leaving a friend’s house on Easter Sunday 2012, she passed Ernesto’s and realized she hadn’t been in for a while, so she decided to stop and have a glass of wine. She couldn’t have known that decision would change the course of her life, but it certainly did in a magnificent way. That is where she first met Caleb. They saw one another and were instantly attracted. Conversations flowed easily as well as the laughter. Caleb and Cassidy spent the entire evening getting to know one another and it felt effortless. By the end of the night, they exchanged numbers and immediately began texting one another. They couldn’t wait long to see one another again, so by that next Thursday they already had planned to go on their first official date. Since that time, the two have been inseparable!
Over the next 3 years Caleb and Cassidy took this time to experience new adventures and to push each other to be the best possible version of themselves. The more they began to share stories it was amazing that their paths hadn’t crossed years before. Caleb and Cassidy share so many common interests such as their passion for sports, traveling, love of their family and friends, and living life to its fullest. They soon realized they wanted to spend the rest of their lives with each other.
On April 24th, 2015, Caleb took Cassidy on a weekend getaway to wine country where he had reserved a quaint little B&B. After enjoying a romantic dinner, they decided to come back to their B&B for the evening. That is when Caleb surprised Cassidy with a gift. It was a video that Caleb had carefully crafted. When Cassidy hit play, the video started off by Caleb telling Cassidy all the reasons that he loved her. The video then transitioned into a trip down memory lane containing images, memories, places, and quotes the two had shared throughout the years together all amazingly synced to the perfect music. It started off with their first date and progressed in chronological order highlighting all the memorial events in their life. The amount of time and thoughtfulness that went into the video had brought Cassidy to tears. As the video came to a close, it ended with the words “April 24th, 2015…The day I ask you to marry me” and at that moment Caleb was on one knee holding a beautiful ring. Cassidy immediately said “yes”, and this beautiful couple now plans their next step in a lifetime of memories – their wedding day.
Enjoy a sneak peek at Cassidy and Caleb’s beautiful engagement session and be sure to keep an eye out for their big day next May!
