Princeton University Engagement Shoot
Alisha and Donovan
As everyone knows, once a year I try to give back to my community by being a part of an “Ultimate Engagement Giveaway” contest, or just simply paying it forward with my work. This year, the most adorable couple ever won; myself, along with several area vendors, spent time with them on the campus of Princeton University. Alisha and Donovan are so cute! Read on to learn more about these two lovebirds, the vendors, and see the incredible photos…
This year’s engagement giveaway was spearheaded by The Princeton Bride, and wow, did they put together some fun for Alisha and Donovan!
This super sweet couple decided on having their shoot at Princeton University, as Donovan went to school there. It was a super sentimental location, that was spiced up with hair and makeup for Alisha by Salon Pure, as well as choices of attire for her by Castle Couture, and topped off with florals by Magnolia West Events. An amazing surprise: Alex Marrero Studios was there to film it all!
From Castle Couture, Alisha chose a pale blue, sleeveless peplum dress by John Paul Ataker. It had a darling ruffle down the back of the skirt that made the photos that more delicate and sweet! Her dress went perfect with Donovan’s white Calvin Klein button down shirt, khaki pants from Old Navy, and blue patterened tie from Bar III.
Shooting these two lovebirds with the stunning florals, dress, and having Alex shoot the video was amazing. These two are so in love, its adorable! What an amazing pair they make! The best part (for me, at least) is I get to watch them grow as a couple and see them on their wedding day! I can’t wait till May 2021!
Thank you both so much for giving us all the opportunity to be a part of some of the happiest days of your lives. Cheers to the next few years, let alone a lifetime of happiness!
How did you two meet?
We met at camp in Morristown NJ where we were both employed as camp counselors for the same grade level. I (Alisha) had the girls group and Donovan had the boys.
Describe your relationship in one sentence:
A fun, quirky, loving comedy show that we hope will last a lifetime!
Describe the proposal…by the groom to be!
We got engaged in Lake Tahoe in Feb 8, 2019. We went there for a winter vacation, but little did Alisha know I had been planning and building a ring with Hamilton Jewelers for the past two months prior. Before arriving, I worked with the hotel to set up the room with roses, chocolate covered strawberries, champagne, and a card. When Alisha turned around from looking outside at the view of the snow-covered mountains, I was on one knee behind her and proposed!
What is your favorite thing about being engaged?
Alisha: Knowing that we are one step closer to getting married and starting a new chapter of our lives together.
Donovan: I love having my best friend to hold each day and night and knowing that we will spend forever together 💍😇
