When You Swipe Right...Good Things Happen
We both swiped right on Tinder and after many intriguing phone conversations had our first date at Lagniappe, a cozy New Orleans style wine bar in Miami.
She's the One
I knew she was the one early on, and after 9 months of getting to know each other, meeting each others families, adventures, and traveling together. I began to make plans to surprise her with a proposal during our trip to Paris in front of the Eiffel Tower. I knew I wanted to propose in a grandiose way, after all I’d been blessed to find my rib. We arrived at the Eiffel Tower for our planned photoshoot (we like to capture every moment wherever we go), and I found the perfect moment to surprise her. I’d asked her to spin around and toss some rose petals I’d brought in the air, still unsuspecting, as she began to spin around I dropped to one knee and asked her to be my wife.
How was your experience during your session?
It was wonderful! Kareem is a true professional and way of making us feel relaxed and at ease. The morning was filled with lots smiles and laughs which allowed our photos to translate very naturally.
Who Says Wedding Planning is Stressful?
Planning has been going great! Having a wedding planner and getting started early has really made the process almost stress-free. We are 7 months out from our wedding day, and all we have left is ironing out the final details, keeping our guests informed, and booking the honeymoon.
Enjoy the Process
Remember that it’s a celebration of your union, so enjoy the process together. Start early because time flies, and you will feel less stressed.
