The Wedplan team is incredibly excited to share the engagement shoot of one of our own! Savana, daughter of our over-joyed team leader, and her fiancé Sam are exchanging I Dos a year from now in May. If you have attended one of our bridal shows, you have most likely seen Savana lending a hand. She has been a big help throughout many of our wedding shows and is now excited about planning her own wedding. We also adore her engagement photos! Ammie Jean Photography has captured the fun and love that Savana and Sam share, with the gorgeous Lageret venue as the backdrop. Scroll down to enjoy!

SHOOT DATE:  April 22, 2019

WHAT WAS YOUR VISION FOR YOUR ENGAGEMENT PHOTOS? We originally had just planned to do a mini couple's photo session before he left for deployment. But then he proposed, so it turned into a full engagement shoot.

HOW DID YOU MEET? We had met in middle school and were best friends throughout high school. Finally started dating after high school. It took us a while to realize how special our relationship was.

TELL US ABOUT YOUR PROPOSAL: After having dinner with our family, he took me to Cold Stone Creamery for dessert. As we were sitting under the pavilion at Greenway Station, eating ice cream, he told me to close my eyes because he had a surprise for me. When I opened my eyes, he was down on one knee, with a gorgeous ring in his hand, and asked me to marry him.

HOW DID YOU CHOOSE THE LOCATION OF YOUR SESSION? We had initially planned an outdoor shoot, but it was supposed to rain throughout the day, so we chose The Lageret as a backup plan. Glad we did...it was gorgeous! I was thankful that my mom knew the owner, so we could use it on such short notice. Thanks, Jamae!

ANY OTHER DETAILS PLANNED? We plan to get married a year from now, May 2020, at Sugarland Barn. So lots of details still in the works.

WHAT IS YOUR WEDDING INSPIRATION AND STYLE/THEME FOR YOUR WEDDING? I'd love a mix of modern and rustic, with a color palette of burgundy, dusty rose, and gold.

ANYTHING ELSE YOU'D LIKE TO SHARE ABOUT YOUR WEDDING JOURNEY SO FAR? My fiancé is in the military and just left on deployment...I can't wait for my best friend to return, followed by our wedding and our happily ever after!
