Playful Engagement Session

I really love this playful engagement session—the video made my day (that and the donut bar)!

Here is what Carlene of Naturally Yours Events said about the day: “When designing this engagement shoot, we wanted to focus on the playfulness that the newly engaged, Chelle and Dave, share in their relationship. They are truly kids-at-heart and their love is so genuine! Many of their first dates and most memorable moments was picnicking near lake Michigan– like when Chelle and Dave got stuck in the rain under a viaduct on their second date. So, we took the idea of a picnic a step farther as they built a home out of blankets, right off lake Michigan complete with skyline views.”




We added a lot of fun and whimsical colors in the different stuffed animals, pillows and sheets that were used to build the fort. They laid down the carpet and unpacked some of their favorite boardgames and toys. Since Chelle loves sweets and Dave can’t get enough cereal- we created a donut bar with some of their childhood favorite cereals as toppings.




Their little vacation home wouldn’t be complete without a sod porch, tin can herb garden, a gnome (one of Chelle’s childhood favorites), and handmade mailbox with their initials. It was super sweet when they read each other the handwritten notes they wrote. They then snuggled up to play some board games and build their next dream home- but the next one will be out of legos!
