Bailey & Michael
Bailey and Michael are super sweet and we had the best time shooting their engagement session all over Spring Lake. They even had an Insta-famous special guest make an appearance! Keep reading to see who it was…
We had a picture perfect day for Bailey and Michael’s engagement shoot: everything from the sand to their attire to the bicycles was on point! I love everything about these two, including the movie they chose to describe their relationship – be sure to scroll down to read what they said! Which is why having special guest Brighton the Golden (the Instagram sensation) in their shoot was just so fitting!
Also very fitting: Bailey and Michael’s clothing choices for the day. Bailey chose a pink and blue maxi dress by Lilly Pulitzer, which went perfectly with Michael’s coordinating shorts and shirt from Vineyard Vines (and of course, his shoes from Allbirds). And to tie everything together, the bicycles even coordinated, especially Bailey’s!
I loved everything about these two and I can’t wait to be a part of their big day next month!
Engagement Ring: Carats & Stones
How did you two meet?
We met on a dating app and then actually met at Kell’s in San Francisco where we enjoyed a few Guiness and hours of conversation.
Describe your relationship in one sentence:
We love each other, challenge each other, and are always making each other happy.
Describe the proposal
Michael told Bailey he wanted to take a walk on the boardwalk in Spring Lake, NJ on a Friday evening. It was rainy during the day and overcast when we went for our walk so the beach was clear except for the life guards huddled in their sheds. We walked up the boardwalk for a bit and then back when Michael thought it would be nice if we went down on the beach and walked in the sand for a bit. We walked for a while and then Michael asked Bailey if she was happy and then while she was looking at the ocean dropped to one knee and said I want to be this happy forever with the ring. Bailey then dropped down to her knees and hugged Michael. Michael asked Bailey if that meant Yes and that she needed to get out of the sand and let me put the ring on her finger. We walked holding hands back towards the boardwalk and the lifeguards applauded as we walked by. They took the only picture we had from the proposal but it was a great one.
If your love story was a movie, which movie would it be?
Must Love Dogs. Because we both met on a dating app and while neither of us owned dogs, it was very much a requirement that the other loved dogs. There are many dogs awaiting us in our future.
What is your favorite thing about being engaged?
Bailey: Spending so much time celebrating with the person I love. Michael: Continuing to have such fun times and celebrations and thinking about so many more to come.
What are you most excited about for your wedding? (Vows, dances, party, etc.)
Having all our friends and family together in the same place celebrating with us. Can’t wait for the dance party.
