Its no secret that this week has been pretty gloomy on the east coast, but with the luck we’ve been having, you’d never know!! As we prepared for our second engagement of the week on Tuesday I was so excited to finally get to see Moonstone Manor! I was only a little concerned for the forecasted weather, but we prepared ourselves for a romantic rainy estate engagement, but it ended up being a beautiful spring engagement instead!
how they met
Brooke and Christopher met online! Chris was the first to message her the day she joined and after emailing back and forth and a few phone calls, Brook was ready to meet this lovely gentleman! For their first date, they met up at Pinchot State Park and went running together. (They both love to run!) They prolonged their time together by continuing for a walk by the lake, laying in the grass and simply getting to know each other on a super casual first date!
Continuing in their active lifestyles Brooke and Christopher often take bike rides together! On a crisp fall afternoon in October, Brooke and Chris went on a long bike ride. After a few hours Brooke was SO looking forward to a warm shower and a big meal! As they got closer to her house, Chris took the lead and asked her to follow him. When he turned right instead of going straight, Brooke got a little annoyed since that was the longer way home (remember her daydream of a warm shower and big meal? :P). She obliged and followed him on this longer route where he led her to a huge sycamore tree they discovered the previous winter. As they walked their bikes up to the sycamore, Brooke noticed the inside of it (its hollowed out!!) was all lit up with string lights. (Talk about romantic!) Chris pulled Brooke inside and got down on one knee and surprised her with a proposal! Lets just say the detour ended up being worth it ;)
their moonstone manor engagement
Brooke and Chris’s engagement at Moonstone Manor was so wonderful! I can’t wait for their wedding in just a month and a half!! I loved that we got to walk around with them and see exactly where they are getting married :) These two were so fun and I loved that Chris was alway ready with a funny comment or a laugh during their session.
