AUTUMN-ESQE GOAT HILL SUNSET
Anyone else a HUGE sucker for a good sunset? For Lauren and Laine’s engagement session we took a trip to the beautiful Goat Hill Overlook to capture some gorgeous and golden backlit photos! Nestled on the side of a mountain and overlooking the Delaware River, Lauren and Laine cozied up together for a stunning autumn night to celebrate their engagement!
Lauren and Laine first met while they were both working for the Hamilton YMCA’s Before and After-school program, where they were both supervisors. Their boss, Dan, had started his new position as the director of Miracle League and reached out to Lauren and Laine for help with putting together games and other volunteer work. After the start of the season, they all went out for drinks to Wildflowers, a local eatery, and after quite a few drinks, Lauren and Laine ended up talking the entire night! They give Dan all the credit for the reason why they are together today. Two weeks later and after a few times hanging out during YMCA events, Laine asked Lauren out on their first date, where they got lunch at Teresa’s Cafe in Princeton, NJ, followed by multiple rounds of Beerio Kart afterward at Laine’s house!
"After A LOT of drinks, we ended up talking the whole time (because Dan and Kate were spewing movies lines all day/night). We give Dan all the credit for the reason why we are together today."
Now I don’t know about you, but I think this is one of the most amazing proposal stories ever! While on a trip to Tennessee last August, Lauren and Laine visited a winery in Nashville where they went to view the total solar eclipse. The entire day Laine kept saying how August was going to be such a big month, but Lauren thought nothing of it. Once the sun was in totality, they watched the eclipse for about a minute, before Laine said it one last time. At that moment, Lauren realized exactly why he had been saying the same thing for the past month. Laine turned with a ring box in hand and got down on one knee. Lauren instantly started balling which made him start to cry too. While still on one knee, the sun started to peek past the moon which made the sky light up. Simply magical!
“I still don't know how he did everything so perfectly...actually I do, because he is simply the best.”
