This charming Meadowlark Botanical Gardens engagement session was the perfect setting for a truly magical love story.
Kim and Josh met in 2013 when Josh was working at the bank, and Kim came in one day for help. Josh unexpectedly became her business banker that day, but the two never realized they were both meeting their forever love. Although their relationship was strictly professional at the beginning, Kim and Josh began growing fond of one another. After a few months of the usual business transactions and occasional (but growing!) flirting, Kim found herself making excuses to go to the bank more. Her bank visits grew longer and more often, and their conversations became less about her banking needs.
One bright afternoon, Kim mustered up the courage to ask Josh out to lunch…only to be disappointed and turned down! Little did she know at the time, it was because of company policy that Josh could not accept an offer like that. All Josh knew is how much he wanted to say “yes,” but unfortunately was unable to. A couple of weeks later, Kim arrived to the bank to find out that Josh had changed his mind and risked it all by asking her if the offer still stood.
After she said it did, the rest is history.
In 2015, Kim brought Josh to her favorite place in the world – the park right behind National Airport. As the two spent time watching the planes fly by, the words “I love you” were said for the first time between them. Josh remembered this day and made sure it was going to be a part of their forever.
After three years of dating, Josh took Kim to that very same park for his surprise proposal. As a plane was landing, he went down on one knee and proposed to Kim under a tree where he carved out their initials. Their love story seems straight out of a movie, doesn’t it?!
The couple celebrated their new engagement at an outdoor session at Meadowlark Botanical Gardens. Since they had always envisioned their wedding day as a natural, elegant event, their engagement session was no different! Kim sported gentle mint and deep greens that perfectly paired with the natural backdrop. As we walked the gardens, the couple spent the day reminiscing on their journey together and swapping soft glances at each other. Everything about the day was simply amazing – from the way the sunlight touched their skin to the gentle smiles they shared!
Kim and Josh, it’s our honor to be your wedding photographers, and we are gushing over how naturally sweet you two are as individuals and together. Cannot wait for your big day coming up!
