Greetings sweet readers,
I have been so excited to share these pictures with you. I think its appropriate to showcase an engagement session today. After all, some of you will be getting engaged tonight!
These two are just so cute! Alyssa’s dress is on my “go get it right now” list. I just love the light and location. Alyssa and Blake are so obviously in love. Just wait till you read their engagement story. So sweet I can’t stand it. But who could resist a guy in cowboy boots! I can’t, love you hun.

Engagement story from the bride;
“During spring break of our senior year of college, we spent the week at my parents house in Fort Worth. In my parents neighborhood there is a walking path running along a small creek and lots of trees. Blake and I frequently ran along this path when we were in town. On the day of our engagement, Blake had set up three posts with flyer holders along this path. As we ran by each one we stopped to see what was inside. The first flyer said “Spring Break Give Away! For female runners only! $25 gift card to Starbucks redeemable at the end of the path.” I became extremely excited as one of my favorite places is Starbucks! We continued along the path and the next flyer read “Spring Break Give Away! For male runners only! $25 gift card to Best Buy redeemable at the end of the path.” At this point I was a little skeptical but Blake told me that we might as well see if it was for real because had nothing to loose. The final flyer read “Spring Break Give Away! For couple runners only! To win the GRAND PRIZE follow these instructions exactly, in order to win.” At the bottom of the final post were several Phiten brand necklaces. The instructions stated for the female runner to wrap a necklace around the ankle of the male runner and then for the male runner to wrap one around the ankle of the female runner. I wrapped one around Blake’s ankle and then he got down on one knee to wrap one around mine. Once he was on one knee he looked up at me and started his proposal. The really sweet part about it was that he incorporated sign language into the proposal. Sign language is a language that I studied throughout high school as well as college. Blake has never studied the language but received tutoring in order to pull this off beautifully. I said YES! Luckily and ever so secretively his parents caught tons of pictures and the whole thing on video! Blake had planned a dinner afterwards with family. It was so sweet to celebrate with everyone on the happiest day of my life.”
Congratulations you two!
Alyssa and Blake will be married on May 26th 2012 Azle, Texas at The Orchard.
