Brenda and Mike’s Stone Tower Winery engagement session was a peaceful escape for two hearts to bask in their beautiful, new love.
The couple met through a mutual friend at their church. After getting to know one another through the community, the two eventually joined the same small group and began dating shortly afterwards. Throughout their three years of falling in love, Brenda and Mike both had their hearts set on making marriage a priority in their lives. Their relationship was built on building each other up through every season of life while growing as individuals. Though both say there wasn’t an exact moment when they knew the other was “the one,” their connection naturally blossomed into a wonderful, unbreakable love.
Brenda and Mike made the next step in their journey on January 13, 2018, through a surprise proposal at his home. Mike disguised the big moment as a wedding the two would be attending for his coworker. Brenda dressed up for the event and was given the impression they were on their way until Mike claimed he left the wedding present at home. The two headed back, and Mike entered the home with Brenda still in their car. He asked Brenda to check the glovebox of their car for the present’s envelope. To her surprise, there was a heart-shaped letter in the box with a sign that said “Please Read.” The letter prompted her to come inside, and there stood Mike on his knee surrounded by string lights, roses, candles, and a balloon banner that read “FOREVER.” Filled with joy, she accepted his proposal!
The couple celebrated their newest milestone with a breathtaking Stone Tower Winery engagement session. Being able to witness their love amongst the incredible scenery was an experience I will truly cherish. There was a certain calmness to the day as we walked throughout the vines and overlooked to never-ending landscape. We stopped at several getaways along the paths of the property to capture timeless moments and their indescribable bond. It was if we were the only ones there, left alone to reflect on how blessed life really is.
Brenda and Mike will host their May 2019 wedding at Stone Manor Country Club in Middletown, Maryland. They envision their wedding day as a modern and minimalist event that embodies a simplistic, yet romantic atmosphere. I am so honored to have spent this short while with them, and I cannot wait to be a part of their big day next year!
