Fall photographs at Shaker Town. That was our destination. I was particularly excited about taking photographs forAlicia and Brady because I knew they were both outdoorsy.This to me meant they would be more than willing to go off the beaten path. That's EXACTLY what I had planned! We had a blast, playing in the leaves and even trekking into the weeds. I was praying out loud that God would keep me safe from all spiders as I walked into the weeds that towered at least a foot over my head. Brady reassured me that he, too, was afraid of spiders. It's a good thing I didn't have to be the brave photographer. We didn't see any snakes or spiders but we did come out covered with nettles. But I'd say the images were worth it. I can't wait to photograph their wedding next May! I asked Alicia to write a few words about how they met. She wrote not only that but their engagement story too! "Brady and I met at Indiana Wesleyan University. We became friends the year Brady transfered to IWU through Brady's sister Danielle. Our friendship grew over 2 years when we began to date. When we first started dating I made him wait a month to kiss me. When the day came he came to my house and blind folded me and took me one of our favorite places next to a lake. He had candles set up and he took the blindfold off and we had our first kiss. It was perfect :)"Brady was living in Maine at the time and had made the decision to move to Kentucky in the folllowing weeks. I was convinced that he would propose sometime after he moved. I had talked to him frequently that week and he never let me know what he was planning. It was July 3rd and I had planned to eat lunch with Danielle (Brady's sister) at Pazzos. After lunch I asked Danielle what she wanted to do that day. She responded by saying "why don't we go geo caching." For those who don't know, geo caching is a GPS scavenger hunt. Brady and I went geo caching together and enjoyed the adventure of finding the end prize. In order to geo cache you go to the geo cache website and type in your location and you find GPS coordinates of a "cahe" you follow the GPS until you find the prize. I told Danielle that I would love to go geo caching but I no longer have the GPS, Brady has it in Maine. Then Danielle pulls out the GPS from her bag and hands me an envelope and tells me good luck. I open the envelope and see that its a letter from Brady. The letter was titled "Love" he had written some scripture, a note, a riddle to the first clue, and the GPS coordinates. I followed the GPS to the Indiana Wesleyan Building in Lexington. This was the name of the college in where we had met. I found my next clue (with the help of Danielle). The second clue was entitled "God" it was about our spirtual relationship and had scripture versus, a note, a riddle, and the GPS coordinates. The second clue led me to the our Pastors house where our church started. The third clue was entitled "Home" It continued with scripture, a personal note, riddle, and GPS coordiantes. It led me to my apartment. At this point I was so exicted and I was hoping that he would there! I walked into my apartment and it was covered with candles, rose petals, and he had printed pictures of us all over the walls. He was standing in my room and told me to sit down. He read me a poem and started to tear up. He got down on his knee and asked me to marry him. I said YES YES YES!! The proposal was way beyond my expectations and the joy of that moment will last forever!
