C+A | Engaged

Oh guys! This post is so fun!! 

Courtney + Arek have the CUTEST proposal story. 

Arek just finished medical school, and his whole family flew in from California to celebrate. They all went out to dinner after graduation. Courtney was supposed to order red wine with dinner, which she always does, but this time she went for a mixed drink! Her drink came out but then a little while later another drink, red wine, came out. She was quite confused because she hadn't ordered it. Arek told her to take a closer look at the glass. Etched on it said, "Mrs. Hidirsah, it has a nice ring to it." And then she looked at her love, who had the most gorgeous ring in his hand! 

And as a special aside about her ring...Arek's family are jewelers and helped design Courtney's ring! The center stone is from his mom's favorite pair of diamond earrings. 

Courtney showed me some engagement photos she loved and they all had a similar, nature focused background. She quickly decided she wanted their session at the Howard County Conservancy! 

I surprised Courtney with a flower crown made with peony's to match her magenta dress! She wore it dancing in the field with her beloved. What a moment to witness! 

I can't wait for their southern California wedding next summer!

Enjoy this sweet, bohemian inspired, engagement session.
