Rhiannon and Matt met up with me for their Phoenix mountain maternity session and dang, was it sweet getting to hear their story. Here it is:
“We met at work! I admired his strong, silent demeanor while taking note of his kindness and how much everyone enjoyed working with him. I made sure I was always in the right place at the right time to allow for ‘casual’ conversations and eventually he got the hint and stopped playing hard to get.”
“Matt proposed to me while at dinner with my family in Sedona when we were celebrating a late Thanksgiving. He had asked the bartender to serve us a flight of their beer and drop my ring in the bottom of one with diamond in the name and then deliver them to the table. We passed around the samples and I was the LAST to notice there was a ring in one despite sampling it first! Eventually, it got passed back to me and someone hinted that there was something in the bottom and that’s when I realized what was going on and when I looked over Matt popped the question.”
“We were married at the Desert Botanical Garden with an outdoor ceremony and reception at the end of March (3/28/15). Weather was perfect and we were surround by blooming palo verde’s and cacti. The bridal party was all in black and white; the boys with succulent boutinierres and the ladies with succulent corsages and copper beaded clutches. Centerpieces were hand arranged by my mom; bursting with fresh flowers in bright yellows, oranges and greens surrounding dried parry’s agaves painted copper and moss covered granite stones from my parents property up north. We had prickly pear margaritas as our specialty drink and an amazing live band to dance the night away.”
These babes are expecting their FIRST little one! Among preparing for their kid on the way, they love to take their pup for walks, the dog park or in the pool, binge Netflix (who doesn’t), travel with friends (specifically camping, trips to Lake Powell and Europe!), and attend concerts.
I have no doubt that their life will only gain even MORE adventures as the years go on and their family grows!
