How We Met – by Amanda: What can I say… we met in 2008, reunited in 2012 and sheer bliss ensued in 2014. Jeff and I first met in college 7 years ago working at a retail store. I can still remember to this day how nervous we were when he first approached me to strike up conversation; the attraction between both of us was instantaneous. After college, Jeff moved to New York City while I continued to work in Buffalo, NY where we both attended college, but we didn’t let that stop us from going on that first date. In 2012 I started dating, who is in the truest sense of the word, my best friend. And little did I know a stunning and unforgettable proposal was waiting for me in the summer of 2014.
how they asked – by Jeff: While in Boston the intent was to surprise Amanda with a romantic weekend she wouldn’t forget. Prior to our arrival I contacted an old friend Makayla Jade, who now owns and manages an up and coming photography businesses in the Boston Area with her husband, The Harris Company. Makayla and I talked about my intentions and after a few emails and phone calls the plan was set in motion for Beacon Hill. Amanda and I reached the intersection of West Cedar St and Acorn St, where I recited a poem that I wrote for her. The surprise and happiness in her eyes I saw when I asked her to marry me is a moment I’ll never forget.
The area was exactly what I was looking for Historical, Timeless, and Intimate. The breath taking images captured by Makayla were beyond anything I imagined. She was really able to capture the moment and because of her work Amanda and I will be able to relive that weekend for years to come.
