Marlee and Greg met up with me to catch a gorgeous sunrise in Apache Junction for their Arizona engagement session at Superstition Mountain – dang, was it a good one. But, do you want to know the BEST part about their session? I’ve known Marlee since she was in high school!
When Matt and I were living in Indiana a few years back, we got to know Marlee and became super close to her family throughout our time there. We even grew to be great friends with Marlee’s older sister and brother-in-law! Matt and I attended Marlee’s graduation ceremony, her grad party, and even had Sunday lunches at her family’s house every so often.
Marlee and Greg met on spring break in Fort Lauderdale – Greg was with his fraternity and Marlee was with her sorority. A mutual friend introduced them and they then exchanged numbers. Marlee said that she was too scared to text him first since he was older, so it wasn’t until the next summer that they actually started hanging out!
Here’s how Greg later popped the question to Marlee:
“My family was camping for Labor Day weekend at my parents house. I invited his family down for the day not knowing the proposal was already planned. His family came down and we all went out to the family farm for “family photos”. I was too oblivious to realize what was about to happen. Greg and I walked into the barn and standing there were, my three nieces & his two siblings holding a “Marry Me” sign. Greg got down on his knee and asked the big question!!”
They’re planning a Spring 2020 wedding, but taking their time in planning the details to really soak in this season of engagement. I am SO excited for the two of them and can’t wait for them to tie the knot next year!
It’s SO neat for me to be able to take pictures of both her and her fiancé in this season of life, meet and get to know Greg and catch up on life. I am and will forever be grateful for the people that I have been a part of Matt and I’s story, just like Marlee, her family and now fiancé.
