These two got engaged at Magnolia Market (yes, the Chip + Joanna Gaines Magnolia!) and, being the wonderful fiance’ that he is, Steven had the forethought to have a photographer there! Well, long story short, their engagement photo was reposted by Magnolia’s Instagram account which was then picked up by Country Living Magazine!! I mean, really, is that even real life?! When Chandler told me about all this at our first meeting, I remembered liking an engagement photo from Magnolia (because of course I follow them with a slight stalker vibe) and it turns out I had already liked their engagement photo!! Ya gotta love social media and it’s power to make the world just a bit smaller 😉
As for this engagement session, I was already feeling the Country Living/Magnolia vibes so a Christmas Tree Farm was the perfect backdrop for these two lovebirds. Luckily, we had already planned their engagement session for this weekend when the weather took a turn for the cold and absolutely poured snow all over the south east! It was perfect timing! Even though the Christmas tree farm we started out didn’t have snow on the ground we still had lots of fun wondering between the trees but the real magic is when we headed back to my own #farmhousehaven for some winter wonderland photos 😍 Just keep scrolling because I promise Chandler’s red dress and that snowy forest is worth it!!!! ❤️
