ENGAGEMENT | Vintage Inspired North Carolina Engagement | Natalie K Photography

There is nothing much to say about an engagement session that is inspired by one of my favorite times in history. Today’s engagement is a throwback to a much simpler time. The time where you would go to the soda shop with your significant other and just enjoy being with each other.  And you know with that Pepsi Cola comes an ice cream cone, so it’s just too cute that the couple had a custom ice cream cone wrapper created with the their save the date. Love, Love, Love!!

Tell us about your engagement session: I wanted something vintage/timeless, Tell us about your first meeting: Chris worked at the local grocery store at the time and would always bring out my mothers groceries. Tell us about your First Date: We went to the movies and saw High School Musical (my choice) and then had ice cream. Tell us about your First Kiss: It was on our second date at the movies again. I kissed him first. Tell us about the proposal: My family owns land in the country and my great grandparents farm house still stands there. The old house and wrap around porch I thought would create the perfect backdrop for the rustic Christmas theme that I was only for our pictures. With our beagle in his bow tie and us in our Sunday best we load his up the truck and headed for my great grandparents home. Chris has always been a kind and gentle person to me, but on that morning he had been extra sweet and thoughtful. Making me coffee, making sure everything was to my likening and giving me lots of love. Looking back at this point I should of known something was up or in the making, but the exhaustion from working the night before kept my mind in a fog.We arrived at the house and proceeded to take pictures on the front porch. We had brought along with us mini Christmas tree, lanterns, and greenery to spruce this ol farm house up a little. We took pictures for a while. To my surprise my best friends car turned into the driveway of the house and she “so happened” to be in the neighborhood, I found out later Chris had communicated with her his plans and asked her to be there to share with me our big moment. Soon after our photographer asked that we sit in two white wooden chairs along the side of the house. Our photography began to ask me questions about the house, and why this house meant meant so much to me. At this point I hadn’t even realize that Chris had stood and had stood behind me. I answered her question with “This is my families land, its been in our family for generations, and how my grandfather and my great grandfather had built this house” My photography reply was “This would be a great place to start some new memories” As soon as she said that Chris reached around me and handed me a little box wrapped in gold wrapper with a bow. I was shocked. I began to unwrap it, as soon as I saw the Zales writing on the box I handed it back to him and proceeded to “ugly cry” The man I had loved for eight years got on one knee and pronounced those famous words “Will you make me the happiest man in the world, and marry me?” Of course I said YES!
