Joe & Emily’s Engagement Story

engagement story

We would like to congratulate Joe and Emily on their engagement! Emily recently shared with us how Joe proposed to her.  Here’s how it went in Emily’s words:

“For Joe’s birthday I surprised him with tickets to his first ever Steelers football game! We mapped out our plan to drive 6 hours to spend the weekend in Pittsburgh with his grandma and go to the game. It was my first time going to Pittsburgh so Joe decided he wanted to take me into the city Saturday night and we’d go to a nice restaurant for a “fancy date night”. When Saturday approached, we dressed up, drove into the city and parked at the bottom of Mt. Washington to take The Incline up the side of the mountain. Well I had no idea, but Joe was beginning to get a little nervous at this point because as we waited 45 minutes in line, he could see the spot at the top of the mountain where he was planning to pop the question. Once we reached the top of Mt. Washington we began walking to the restaurant, or so I thought!

Instead we came to a beautiful scenic overlook and Joe insisted on us stopping to take a picture. After we snapped a few photos, I was expecting us to rush to get to our dinner reservation on time, but Joe had other plans. As we walked to the end of the scenic overlook he turned and faced me and I could tell he seemed nervous. At that moment my heart started racing a thousand miles an hour and I knew what was about to happen. As Joe reached in his pocket and got down on one knee he shared with me reasons he wanted to spend the rest of his life with me, making memories with me and pursing dreams with me, and then he said that in order to do that, he first needed to ask me one more question. He asked me to marry him! And I of course said YESSS!!!!!

engagement storyThe moments that followed were such a blur to me, I was so surprised, shocked, excited and joyful I couldn’t hardly handle it! We spent a few moments taking more pictures with the beautiful sun setting over the city and of course admiring my new beautiful ring!

And then we walked down the street to enjoy a fantastic dinner at the LeMont Restaurant just the two of us. We had a private table overlooking the entire city of Pittsburgh and Joe had beautiful flowers waiting for me! Once we finished dinner we spent the rest of the evening calling all of our family and closest friends to share the news with them.

The next morning I woke up still in shock that I was engaged!!! And as I laid in bed I began texting my sister pictures of my ring… little did I know Joe had her waiting in the next room to surprise me!!!  My sister and her husband drove through the night to surprise me and spend the whole next day with me and Joe. She’s a wedding photographer and so she also surprised us by offering to go ahead and take some engagement pictures for us that day! We had such a blast taking pictures right after getting engaged!

Two weeks after the proposal we were in my hometown for an engagement party and Joe surprised me YET AGAIN! As a slideshow of all of our pictures together scrolled through, all of the sudden a picture of our proposal appeared! I was speechless! “Wait… what?? How did he?! Who?!” It turns out Joe and my sister secretly hired a Pittsburgh photographer, Zack Wilson, to document our whole proposal without me knowing it!! This was such an incredible surprise and I am beyond thankful to have such beautiful images to remember a once in a lifetime moment!!”

Patrick & Sarah’s Beautiful Engagement Story

engagement storyCongratulation to Patrick and Sarah on a beautiful engagement! Find out how Patrick proposed to Sarah below:

Patrick and Sarah met in the spring of 2011 in South Africa as Penn State students exploring their “wild” side.  After experiencing those ten amazing weeks together, they knew there was something special between them, and they started dating shortly after their return to Pennsylvania. In their free time together, over the last two years, they spent countless hours together walking in the woods, practicing their most favorite shared past time together, nature photography.

It was a sunny afternoon in the middle of summer, when Patrick asked Sarah if she’d like to go to Bald Eagle State Park. She said yes, expecting nothing less than the usual routine, and off they went. They went on a walk along the water, sharing stories and taking pictures, grilled lunch over an open fire, and started a game of Rummy 500. Before it was time to leave the park, Patrick went from sitting to crouching on one knee, and Sarah was blown away. He presented Sarah with a ring and asked like you would expect “will you please marry me?” In disbelief the worst words a person on one knee could expect escaped out of Sarah’s mouth, “no, no, no!” Her answer was of course yes, though, and it’s been history since!

Boy Finds Treasure in The Back Yard

In case you missed it over the weekend, here is a nice story out of the Boston area about a young boy who found a missing engagement ring and wedding band while playing in the back yard.

Ryan Baima, 3, loves to dig in his yard, and it was while he was digging recently that he made an incredible discovery.

He brought a ring, caked with dirt, over to his mother.  Luna Baima says she didn’t think much of it, until Ryan asked if she wanted the other one.  That’s when it clicked in her head, that her son had likely just found someone’s engagement ring and wedding band.
Luna began asking neighbors about the rings, and one neighor remembered that 33 years ago, a woman named Joan Mulligan had lost her rings while weeding in the yard.
