Engagement Session Sayen Gardens Hamilton NJ
I cannot begin to say how amazing Alexis and Spencer’s Engagement Session Sayen Gardens went and I cannot wait to share it all with you. Alexis and Spencer reached out to me via Wedding Wire and we hit it off great. It’s actually a small world of how I really met Alexis and Spencer, well more Alexis than Spencer.
Alexis and I went to Allentown High School together in Allentown NJ. When we got on the FaceTime call, I recognized her. So I looked them up on Facebook and I saw that we had over 100 mutual friends. When we realized that we knew eachother, it made the conversation even easier for them. Engagement Session Sayen Gardens
Alexis said she was so excited to get the engagement session done, so we decided to do the session yesterday. One request that they had was to include to their son Nathan! Let me tell you, he is the cutest kid around and he did such a great, great job! He sat through the photos and he was infatuated with the clicking of the camera.
We were, unfortunately, fighting time with the weather. I was worried that we were going to get rained out so we pushed the session up an hour and created some serious magic together.
Alexis and Spencer were down for anything and I am so proud of how well they did at their session. They did so well that I was able to edit their session in about an hour. I was sending Alexis previews and getting her so excited to see the final gallery. Let’s dive into their love story and how they met! Engagement Session Sayen Gardens
HOW THEY MET!
Alexis and Spencer met back in 2012 at a tailgate for a Mac Miller Concert. They became Facebook friends but didn’t talk again for another 5 years. “He popped up on my Facebook and I was like oh my who is this delicious man!! And then I realized who he was!” Engagement Session Sayen Gardens
THEIR FIRST DATE!
It was the Summer of 2017 when Alexis and Spencer went on their first to Seaside Heights Boardwalk. “I was nervous. He was so sweet and good looking I felt like I couldn’t stop staring lol. We drank Coronas at the beachcomber and conversation was so easy with him. He made me laugh a lot and I was instantly drawn to him. After, we walked the boardwalk and have been inseparable ever since!”
HOW DID YOU FALL IN LOVE?!
When I asked Alexis about how they fell in love this is what she said “He was tall, tan and handsome. I’m pretty sure I fell in love right away!! We had an instant connection and things moved very fast because everything just felt right. That being said the first time we hung out with his friends and I saw who he really was, I was like yup!”
“He’s everything I’d ever want in a husband. Spencer is easily the funniest person I know. Even when we bicker over stupid stuff, it always ends in him making me laugh.”
HOW DID HE PROPOSE
Spencer proposed to Alexis the day after Thanksgiving in 2019 in the Christmas Village in Philadelphia. “We went to the Christmas village in Philly with our family. I had no idea it was coming. Nathan had just been born and it was the hardest month of our lives. I was just excited to be out of the house and spend time with our family.”
“I remember he was so stressed out on where we were going to take a picture and I thought why is he being so extra right now? We eventually found a spot and as we posed for a picture he got down on one knee, I was still confused. I actually said, “why are you being an idiot, let’s just take this picture!” It definitely took me a minute to realize what was going on.”
“I was overwhelmed with happiness and super shocked that he was able to plan it and keep a secret! He was so nervous I don’t even think real words came out of his mouth but he asked me to marry him and it was absolutely perfect!” Engagement Session Sayen Gardens
I love when the proposals are unexpected, I usually ask the bride if she remembers any of the details about the proposal and when they tell me when they didn’t have a clue, is my favorite reaction because it makes me happy for them! Engagement Session Sayen Gardens
WHAT ARE YOU MOST EXCITED ABOUT FOR YOUR WEDDING?!
“They are most excited to celebrate our love with all our friends and family! They are a wild bunch so it should be an amazing time!
