Mary & Gary :: Engaged


First off, I’m not even sure where to start with these two. They’re like two peas in a pod – the perfect compliment to each other and the perfect comical pair. After seeing how they interact in front of the camera, chatting with them at their session and reading their answers to my questionnaire… I’m literally laughing out loud and inspired by this couple. Mary and Gary and truly what they say themselves — the movie DATE NIGHT. The way they described their proposal? I could totally picture it! I think my favorite part about these two is how surprising they are – Mary is very organized, knows what she wants and is a go-getter. She’s really enjoying the wedding planning process! Gary was pretty quiet at our session at first but quickly opened up and became a real fun participant and I quickly learned he looked forward to this engagement session we had scheduled! I’m honestly really happy with how this session came out – the light was amazing, the weather was gorgeous and these two couldn’t get any cuter and more in love. I can’t wait for their wedding at Crossed Keys Estate this Summer! Read more below to learn about their love story!

You can never go wrong with some Green Bay Packer jersey’s to show off your true team spirit at your engagement session!
Also, take note, these ginormous Bernese mountain dog is only 7 months old.. and huge. BUT ADORABLE!

I absolutely loved the outfits Mary picked out at their session – Mary loves Lilly Pulitzer.  Her other outfit which included a blue top was
from Vineyard vines, her bracelet and watch were Kate Spade and she finished her out fits off with shoes from Jack Rodgers. Gary wore a mix of Vineyard Vine and Kohl’s attire.

We were watching This is Us in our apartment in Smithville and the ring was burning a hole in his pocket.
I asked him if I should start another episode and he said “or you could marry me?”
