Madelyn and Naomi pulled on warm sweaters for their cuddly engagement session on a New Hampshire mountain top. The golden colors of the setting complemented their outfit colors to create some amazingly cozy photos.
How did you meet?
We both randomly sat next to each other at an information session in college, and started talking during a “turn to your neighbor” moment. By the end of the session, we were both crazy about the other!
What is your proposal story?
Naomi surprised Madelyn with an alternate set of rules to her favorite board game, which involved her going through an entire wedding in the game before turning to see Naomi down on one knee right as Madelyn won. Madelyn proposed to Naomi as well not long after in their favorite place in the world: Georgetown, Maine. Madelyn set up a scavenger hunt that had Naomi going to their favorite places and putting together jigsaw puzzles of some of their favorite pictures together. At the last one, Madelyn was waiting with the ring!
Tell us about the ring/band.
Both of our rings are white gold. Madelyn’s has one large square diamond. Naomi’s has five gems in a line: two diamonds on the outside, two sapphires after those, and one larger diamond in the middle. All of her diamonds are round.
Tell us about your engagement shoot outfits and accessories.
Naomi wore a maroon sweater and dark blue jeans. Madelyn wore a light-pink sweater and similar jeans. They match the fall colors perfectly! Notable accessories include both of them wearing gold earrings that were presents from each other.
Why a mountain wedding? What’s your biggest piece of advice for other couples planning a mountain wedding?
We feel extremely connected to nature, especially mountains. Some of our favorite memories are hiking up mountains together and just appreciating the view. When we found out that we could do our engagement shoot in a similar environment, we both knew that it was right. Our advice is absolutely to be ready for it be muddy! We are both very fortunate that we wore dark brown, closed-toe shoes. If one of us had dared to wear something different, our pictures would have had to be ankles-up!
