When it came time for Chrissie and Carter to choose their location for their engagement session, they had the perfect spots in mind. They wanted to re-create the day they got engaged in Charlottesville, Virginia! You will have to read all about their proposal further down to see which locations they chose, but they are two spots I have always wanted to visit!
July 2013 is when Chrissie and Carter met through Match.com. Carter was Chrissie’s second date through the site, but Chrissie was Carter’s first. His siblings had signed him up long before, but it just took a while for him to find the right one! Chrissie lived in D.C. when she met Carter. She is now a student at UVA’s Darden School of Business which has led to her loving Charlottesville, so much so that they are getting married there.
Carter had originally planned to propose at the beach over the Fourth of July weekend when they were there with Chrissie’s family. However, he postponed it to the following month because he was worried about the timing of Chrissie’s ring being finished. To help disguise his proposal plan, he said they were going to have a late anniversary date, since their first date was August 8th and he was proposing on August 25th. They went out to one of their favorite breweries, Starr Hill Brewery, to grab a beer. Then they went to Grace Estate Winery since Chrissie had been told by multiple friends how awesome it was. They got some food, a bottle of wine, and sat down at one of the picnic benches to enjoy the view. It was then that Carter asked Chrissie to marry him! After she said“yes,”out came her parents, sister, and his parents to help celebrate! They all went to dinner as one big happy family to celebrate their engagement! Chrissie is so happy that he included their families in his plan.
Chrissie and Carter are getting married June 2018 at King Family Vineyards surrounded by their closest family and friends! It is going to be quite the celebration and I cannot wait to capture such a special day for them!
