Snake Skin Dress
I love these two and their Salt Air Engagements! I met Abbey a few years ago at her sister Emily’s wedding!! These two have the love story that every girl dreams about. Abbey and Max grew up with their parents as family best friends. They didn’t really take notice of each other until they were about age 18 and 19. Max and Abbey started talking even though Max had moved from the state! They happened to both me in the same town for a few days and they made the most of that week spent in California. There was a spark there that they couldn’t deny. But Max headed out on his mission to Peru soon after.
That time apart was where they both grew a lot. They kept in contact, but she wasn’t waiting. When he got home, the timing worked out that she could go home to California for his homecoming talk. They were both in California for a little while and that time spent together really revealed their feelings for each other!! She loves how thoughtful he is and how he never has a bad word to say about anyone. He’s so in love with Abbey and how in love she is with life, and how it is to see life through her eyes!

A few weeks ago they went to Boston on a trip! They were there for a few days. She just so happens to work at a jewelry store, so she knew he had the ring. She had no idea what day would be the day that he would propose. Max had his own and proposed in the middle of the week to throw her off. They were on the freedom trail and sending by this pond. He got into his bag and when she turned around he was on his knee. She was sooo thrilled to say yes!!
Wison’s Engagement Ring
We headed out to Salt Air for their engagements! It was the perfect backdrop to make their amazing outfits and style pop. It was the ideal evening, and the clouds rolled in to give us some pretty pastel lighting. Abbey is a master at picking out outfits and I want her to dress me from now on. They are so classy and so in love. I loved getting to hear about their relationship and get to know them better. They were sooo good at the poses… they basically looked like hired models! We also figured out that Abbey looks just like Cassie from the Bachelor and I ACCIDENTALLY called her Cassie! I’m so glad to have gotten to serve these two for their engagements! Congrats you two!!
