Guys, this blog is super close to my heart. These guys are two of my hubby and I’s BEST friends from back in Missouri! I was so stoked when they got engaged this past summer and asked me to be their engagement and wedding photographer!! I flew back to St. Louis for a wedding a few weeks back, and got to meet up with these guys for their main street engagement session while I was in town! Get ready to hear their story – it’s SUCH a great one!
How they Met AND the Proposal:
“Rachel was a manager at my niece’s neighborhood pool. I visited the pool with family and Rachel had caught my eye! After a few conversations, she and I decided to go on a hike, but decided to meet up for dinner the day before our original plans because we just couldn’t wait to see each other.” Several months later, Josh said: “I bought the ring and set the whole thing up with our friends, Josh and Emily. With their help, I came up with a plan to surprise Rachel. She thought that I would propose during our upcoming Colorado trip. I had Josh place the ring in pink rose I had planted down on St. Charles Main Street and watch for us as we rode our bikes along the Katy Trail with Emily. When we approached the spot where the flower was, I had her pick it and find the ring herself. When she first saw it, she thought it was a bug!”
“The best adventure we have experienced together so far was our big road trip out to Utah and Colorado this past summer. We visited three national parks, one national forest, and one national natural landmark all in the matter of a week between the two states. We slept in our car a couple of nights, and didn’t get tired of each other at all!”. Josh and Rachel adventured through Rocky Mountain National Park as one of their epic road trip locations, and picked out THE spot where they’re planning to have their Colorado wedding next summer!
These guys love to hike, try new place to eat or drink and spend any of their free time together. They’re planning to one day live out of state, live abroad, get another cat, and visit all 50 states are just to name a few!
I’m absolutely STOKED to celebrate Josh and Rachel next summer in Colorado for their wedding day! I’m so grateful for incredible friends like them and am beyond thrilled for them in this season.
