Ranissa and Alex

How We Met

Alex and I Don’t do anything really traditional we have always been connected one way or another for the last 10 years of our lives. We just so happened to connect 2 years ago through social media and it was an instant connection. Alex is a Wedding DJ/ Videographer and myself being a wedding photographer – We’re kind of a match made in heaven. When Alex and I had met, I was a single mom of 2 beautiful girls. Alex had already known about my daughters because we’ve followed each other on social media for years – he has loved our girls like they were his from day 1. Alex and I have been together since 2/18/2018, we have 2 daughters and a 1-year-old son, a house, a cute dog named Harper – all that was missing was the once piece that brings 2 together as 1 – as I stated before, Alex and I are kind of unconventional but at the end of the day, love is what matters.

How They Asked

Alex had planned a weekend getaway to North Conway, New Hampshire. He told me the morning of 02/22/2020- we’re going on a bachelor styled date. We headed off to New Hampshire with our first stop being Jackson Falls, we walked, talked and took some pictures. Then we headed to Diana’s Bath, of course, hiking, talking about our kids, and taking more photos. We then went to our last stop to Echo Lake State Park which is where we had done our gender reveal photos for our son 2 years ago – it already had a special place in our hearts.

Alex had packed a picnic basket, with wine and a rose. We had a glass of wine, cheered to our weekend away, he handed me a rose and asked: “Do you accept this rose?” I excitedly said YES (The bachelor is like our Monday date night- we’re obsessed) and then we walked out on the frozen lake where he got down on one knee and asked me to marry him. I definitely said YES!! To spend forever with my best friend is all I could hope for ❤️
