It was a sweetest of engagements. Gilbert proposed to Lauren on the eve of the new year. Overlooking the river and the skyline of Jacksonville, Gilbert got down on one knee to pop the question. Without a doubt in her mind she accepted.
We embraced their favorite places in Jacksonville, revisited their favorite date spots, and captured new memories for their spring engagement session. From bike riding to Bold Bean Coffee Roasters and enjoying a cup of coffee we headed to their favorite park for a picnic breakfast Lauren had packed including a scrumptious Maple Street Biscuit. Lauren pulled out the classic game of checkers where once again they played and as always (from what I am told), Gilbert won. (Though let’s be real, I’m sure Lauren was distracted with me taking photos.) The perfect cup of coffee, picnic in the park, and with a quick wardrobe change the engagement session was topped off in the best of ways, at The Candy Apple & Cocktails, the most scrumptious Engage and fabulous candy shop in town. Oh it was sweet in every way.
Now that you’ve heard the story, enjoy the photos. Their love is radiant and their love for life shines through. Here’s to love and sweet dates!
Now that you must be craving all of this wonderful food, you must add these places on your “to visit” list. You won’t be disappointed! And let’s be real, a photoshoot and amazing food? Yes, please!
