Last month, I photographed Megan and Drew’s rustic engagement session on his family’s farm in Doylestown, PA. Their session was the perfect rustic session and we had so many gorgeous rustic elements to make my photographer heart so happy. We had tall grass, an old stone building, cowboy boots and a stunning sunset. I am so excited to share this rustic engagement session!
Megan and Drew met in her backyard on July 11, 2014, which also happened to be her college graduation party. Drew’s mom and her mom were best friends at work. They worked together for years, but Megan and Drew had never met because they lived in different states and were off at college and busy with life. For years Megan would talk to Drew’s mom and her mom on the phone while they were at work, and would reach out to his mom for recipes and such. The funny thing about how they met was that Drew’s mom asked him if he would drive her to her “friend’s daughter’s graduation party” because it was a long drive and his dad couldn’t make it. For some reason, Drew’s dad was able to go, but Drew went with them anyway and the rest is history!
Their first date was three weeks later at a restaurant in Princeton where they met for dinner. Megan was so nervous and recalls the restaurant being really fancy and she had no idea what to order. But despite being so nervous, it was like they had known each other for years.
Engaged on 05/22/2019, the proposal from Megan: “Drew proposed in Zion National Park near the Angels Landing Overlook. We were taking a vacation cross country because we like to hike a lot. That day we were going on a hike to the top of the overlook and Drew was in a hurry because it was going to rain. Minutes before the proposal we’re hiking up the mountain and I remember telling him to slow down because I thought we were hiking, not running a marathon. Right before we got to the top, he climbed up and turned around and reached for my hand and said “This Is It” so I climbed up too and looked at the view. I didn’t even realize he wasn’t standing next to me by the time I turned around and he was on one knee. After our moment our two best friends came out from hiding and surprised us with the photos from the proposal and champagne.”
Megan and Drew are planing a rustic Fall wedding with a romantic feel at the Bradford Estate for next November, they plan to have lots of pumpkins on hand and a navy and silver color palette. When these two are not wedding planning, you are likely to find them outdoors, cooking and traveling. Their dream once married is to keep each other laughing. They would love to do some traveling and have a big family. Doing what they love with those they love is the most important thing to them.
Any advice for future bride’s planning?
The best advice I can think of at this point is to have fun with it and make your wedding reflect you both! Make sure to add little things that tell your story.
And finally, what are you most looking forward to about your wedding day?
All of the adventures to come as the new “Mr. & Mrs.” and to celebrate with our families and friends!
