Meeting Doug and Marie for the first time for me was like we had been friends for years! These two are the sweetest couple you will ever meet! We had the most beautiful fall evening for our session on a farm where Marie played as a child.
Marie and Doug have been in each other's lives for years....11 years to be exact! Marie was still in high school when she met "DW" through some mutual friends. In her first year of college they started dating...nothing serious....and they ended up parting ways, but found their way back to each other in 2011 and they have been together ever since!
Doug proposed to Marie on Christmas Eve last year and Marie tells me that it was a total surprise....but I will let her tell their story.......
"DW" proposed on Christmas Eve last year. It was totally unexpected. We never open presents before Christmas morning and that night he had said he had a gift he wanted me to open. I thought it was weird because again, we have never opened gifts early. I did start to wonder at that point what was going on but proceeded to go in the living room where our Christmas tree was and I sat down on the couch. He handed me a box and asked me to open it - inside was a silver star ornament that he had engraved “Will you Marry me?” with the date 12-24-2016 on it. As soon as I saw/read the ornament he got down on one knee and pulled out the ring!"
Doug and Marie you are so much fun and I can't wait until June when you two get married....love you two already!
