Adam + Shannon // A Cross Estate Gardens, New Jersey Engagement

October 07, 2023

"We are who we are, because of those we choose to love and because of those who love us." - Kate Mosse

We had such a fantastic time working with Adam and Shannon at Cross Estate Gardens for their engagement session! The leaves were just starting to turn and it was the perfect, warm, fall day. Adam and Shannon are so sweet, and we had a blast getting to know these two better. We cannot wait for their big day at Hamilton Manor in 2025!

Adam proposed to Shannon under the guise that they were going to be meeting up for their friends 30th birthday party. The location just so happened to be where they spent their first Valentines together, Violette's Cellar. The restaurant had a speakeasy room where they slide the library book shelf back to reveal an additional room. Shannon was expecting to see their friend's family and friends but was instead greeted with a floor scattered with rose petals, candles, and photos lining a walkway that led up to the words "Marry Me". Shannon said yes! And I can confirm that these two are just perfect together. Enjoy their beautiful, Cross Estate Gardens engagement session!
