Today we’re excited to share these lovely engagement photos from Soiree Bride-to-be Emera and her fiance John. These two love birds will tie the knot on October 24th of this year in Phoenix, Arizona and we are so lucky to be a part of it! Their engagement shoot is a true representation of their style and we can’t wait to share the details of their amazing warehouse wedding we are helping plan.
We love the desert setting they chose for their photos, combined with such chic elements and that DRESS! Kudos to Monique Hessler Photography for capturing these beautiful moments…And just in time for Valentine’s Day we thought it would be perfect to share not only their photoshoot but also their sweet engagement story. Big thanks to Emera for sharing the love. Enjoy!!
“John and I planned a couple’s getaway to Maui last October of 2013. The weekend before
our trip, we hosted a dinner at our home for my family. My mom came over with enough food to feed
our entire neighborhood, which should have been a red flag, however being Filipino we do not cook
less than bulk! In the middle of dinner, John excused himself from the table but never returned. From
our back yard, I heard “Need You Now” by Lady Antebellum playing and I instantly knew what was
about to happen! What I did not know is that John had invited a few of our close friends to be a part of
our proposal! Holding candlesticks, as well as tears, we all listened to my wonderful soon-to-be fiancé
express his love and ask me to marry him! Those close to us who lived far away were able to watch
the entire proposal via Facetime. My now maid of honor also put together a video for us which
incorporated messages from other friends and family sending their well wishes. I could not have
dreamt of a more perfect proposal!” – Emera
