Japanese Gardens and University of Illinois Campus, Urbana, IL


Happy Friday, everyone! Today I am super excited to share on of my favorite engagement sessions, maybe ever! Kaitlyn + Tom met up with me in Urbana to explore a bit at the Japanese Gardens and end directly on the University of Illinois campus, right where Tom proposed!

Kaitlyn + Tom went for an evening stroll around the campus where they both went to school together. As they walked, they came upon “the spot” where Tom asked Kaitlyn to be his girlfriend almost four years ago. When they approached the quad Kaitlyn noticed the christmas lights strung all around. Tom asked Kaitlyn to clap three times, and when she did, the lights lit up and a song played. It was the same song that they shared their first dance to, and in the middle of the quad, they danced once again. As they dance he told her how much he loved her and that he wanted to spend the rest of their lives together and as the song ended he got down on one knee and proposed.

I love stories like this. Bold. Romantic. Grand. I am so excited for these two to tie the knot this December!
