Remember that Parisian-chic engagement party we had up on 100lc not too long ago? (That now-famous naked cake oughta jog your memory.) Well today the ever-stylish bride + event designer Samantha Dapper is back again to share her + fiancé Kyle’s engagement photos from their session with Alyssa Marie Photography at the ever-lovely Parker Palm Springs. Shall we?
Love this couple’s style. Did we mention this bow playsuit is on MAJOR sale at ASOS right now? Only a few sizes left!
Samantha + Kyle’s proposal story, via our bride-to-be…
Kyle and I met while we were both in high school, we started dating in college and were engaged last April, while on vacation in Oahu. On the day of our engagement we spent the day beach hopping, trying to chase the sunshine on a cloudy day. On our last stop I was trying to get some sun and he told me that he would be right back. I remember him taking too long and when he finally came back he told me to stand up and needed to tell me something. WHY was my immediate response, I knew something was up. He then got down on one knee and asked me to marry him. It was amazing, the two of us alone on the most beautiful beach. It was perfect.
A fairy tale bouquet by Shindig Chic, who also did the florals for their party.
Srsly adorable shot.
The big day will be in Palm Springs so it made sense to have their e-sesh there too. They were sure to incorporate the mid-century modern influence and as Samantha puts it, the drama of the desert backdrop. She tells us, I think the photo shoot really represents what our wedding style will be; fun and formal! Alyssa Marie Photography captured it perfectly! I have known and worked with Alyssa for years and I feel so lucky to have a friend document such an important time in our lives. We can’t wait for the big day!
We have a hunch we’ll be peeking at those photos, too! Congrats guys!
