how they asked
The day my dream came true! Month’s before, I was chatting with my photographer best friend Katie Simbala about how I would love to take photos in a greenhouse. We were inspired and searched for local greenhouses and I found Howard Peters Rawlings Conservatory and Botanic Gardens of Baltimore. This location was always in the back of my mind because of the beauty in the colors of the plants and flowers.
On January 6th, 2018, Katie “booked” a styled photo shoot with me and took me to get my hair and makeup professionally done. At this time, I did not think of anything suspicious since we planned on having a photoshoot some day. We drove off to a surprise location, once we turned on the street I saw the beautiful building of the Botanical Garden that I saw from Google months ago! I was so excited to have this shoot.
We walked into a few different rooms and photographed with some beautiful plants. As I am entering the next room, I see my Fiancé at the very end of the bridge and my jaw drops! “Is this really happening?!” I keep asking myself this because everything I wanted for my engagement he had done for me like the location, hair, makeup, dress, photography and of course our families. There were lots of tears of joy and smiles bursting into the room. I’m so blessed and excited to be marrying my best friend!
