Kaitlyn and Ben~ Engaged

posted by Kelly

Both engineering grads from University of Virginia, Kaitlyn and Ben are the epitome of preppy and adorable all rolled into one. Their seemingly shy demeanor melted as they sweetly recapped for us their story of meeting their senior year in one monochromatic classroom. Sitting slightly adjacent to one another they didn’t speak all year long until the final week of school. It’s a good thing they broke the ice in the nick of time. Fast forward three years later and they are just seven short months away from their wedding day.

It seemed only fitting that we revisit the classroom that started it all. Boy meets girl, girl meets boy….boy digs girl, girl digs boy…boy is shy, girl is shy and thus the circle went for them UNTIL…….

We then trucked it up to Carter Mountain Orchard to take in the beautiful views, rows of apple orchards and acres of vineyards surrounding us on all sides. It was PERFECT weather and although we were racing the sun we managed to grab lots of sweet, fall shots showcasing Kaitlyn and Ben’s sweet and saucy side!

Kaitlyn and Ben got engaged in western Pennsylvania while visiting architectural genius, Frank Lloyd Wrights home, Fallingwater. Kaitlyn wanted to take a memento from that day, besides her gorgeous ring, so she grabbed these colorful coasters. We wanted to incorporate them into the orchard for fun.

Kaitlyn brought along this sweet camera that was her grandfathers.
