Hailey and Geoff came across my Instagram in January 2021 after I partnered up with Becker’s Bridal for a New Years event. When I got the first message from them, I thought maybe there’d been a typo. Their wedding date said December 2023! NOPE! It was right! Hailey is in grad school and after being together so long, they knew they wanted to be engaged, but are waiting to tie the knot until after graduation next spring.
In the spring of 2020, Geoff had even told sweet Hailey that if he didn’t propose in 2020, she could say no! So when the holidays rolled around, and Hailey hadn’t been upgraded to fiance, she started getting antsy. One night they had all their family together and they were working on a puzzle Geoff had made of her favorite picture of the two of them. They were down to the last piece and she realized it was missing! That missing piece would’ve of Hailey’s left ring finger with her promise ring on it. Next thing she knows, Geoff was down on one knee in front of their family, asking her to spend forever together!
*CUE THE UGLY CRYING*
How freaking cute!?? Right!?
They knew they wanted some casual snowy engagement photos showing off winter in Michigan since they love the snow so much! Luckily, last fall, my husband and I purchased our dream home with GORGEOUS pine trees!! We were stalking the weatherman as I watched the 8” of snow that had fallen the week before, quickly melt away. I was a little panicked, but saw flurries in the forecast two nights before Hailey finally had a little break from classes. Y’all, I feel like I was even sleeping with my fingers crossed! But we made it and it was a dream!
I can’t wait for their second engagement session in the spring 2023 and their wedding at Weber’s Boutique Hotel in Ann Arbor, Michigan in December.
