It goes without saying that we love, love, love weddings here at Love Wed Bliss. But we must confess that when a engagement shoot lands in our laps, which so happens to be styled to perfection, we break out in swooning fit that we would usually reserve for the prettiest of sweet I do’s. So what better way to kick start 2013 than with this swoon-worthy love shoot captured by Katy Hall Photography. The gorgeous Kayla and Josh stole our hearts immediately – with their cool Anthropologie style, picnic engagement session and amazing blue eyes …. so much so, we have no doubt they will run away with your hearts too!
From Kayla: Josh and I met my first night at college in Winona State at a friend’s house and continued bumping into each other through mutual friends and an organization on campus. We first began hanging out with each other because of our mutual interest in the TV show LOST, watching episodes at his house for a study break (or procrastination). I knew he must really like me when I got Swine Flu that semester and he still hung out with me when I was feeling pretty sick! The proposal – There are some really cool bluffs in Winona and a lookout over the whole town from one called Garvin Heights. Some of my friends brought me up there one night and down a little path lit with candles he was waiting with chocolate covered strawberries and my favorite food – cupcakes! A friend filmed the whole thing. My favorite part of the whole story is that’s where my dad proposed to my mom.
From photographer Katy Hall: I choose Tamarck Reserves for their setting because it offered a beautiful organic feel to the first part of their shoot. Kayla and Josh are very stylish, but very simple and real and I wanted their love and fun spirits to shine through. We then went to Otter Lake to bring their adventurous spirit to the shoot. They love anything that allows them to have fun together and is out of the ordinary. Their big day is July 6, 2013. They are getting married at an amazing venue – the Mayowood Stone Barn. I am already counting the days, because this wedding is going to be the icing on the cake to this session!
