"You are my heart, my life, my one and only thought." - Arthur Conan Doyle
We had the most amazing time hanging out with Dan and Hailey for their RB Winter State Park engagement session. As we drew closer to the date of their session, I kept getting more and more nervous, because the temperature forecast kept dropping. That Saturday was predicted to be in the mid-teens, and I knew it was going to be even colder at RB Winter because that area acts as a micro-climate. So we planned on bringing hand warmers, taking heater breaks in the car, and bundling up in between takes. It was absolutely freezing with temperatures around 11 degrees, but Dan + Hailey were such troopers. In absolutely no way were they wearing the proper footwear to be traipsing through snow and ice for two hours, but they did it with a smile and I am just so incredibly happy that we get to call them our clients. We cannot wait to shoot their wedding at the Rusty Rail in December.
Hailey and Dan are high school sweethearts, so Dan went the extra mile to make sure the proposal was a complete surprise. He told Hailey that he wasn't coming to Pennsylvania that weekend, so Hailey made plans to go out to dinner with her mom. Hailey received a panicked call from her three sisters that day, and they told Hailey that her one sister broke her leg at a local park and Hailey needed to come to help out with the emergency. When Hailey and her mom arrived at the park, Hailey saw the gazebo was decorated with flowers and streamers and could not believe that her sister with her broken leg ruined someone else's proposal. Hailey then saw one of Dan's friends run across the park and realized that it was actually Dan who was planning on proposing and the surprise was for her. He had a smorgasbord of all of their favorite foods ready (Wendy's, pizza, Olive Garden, and ice cream), and he proposed with a box of chocolates that spelled "Will You Marry Me?" with the ring at the end. Hailey of course said yes! Enjoy their snowy, RB Winter State Park engagement!
