Raisa & David’s Engagement!

Happy Wednesday, friends!!  What a beautiful fall weekend it’s been!  My husband and I loved celebrating our anniversary in Vermont!  The rainy days that brought out the coziness of fall and its beautiful golden colors reminds me of this sweet engagement session with Raisa and David!

I met these two because they were planning an engagement session in the Finger Lakes in the fall!  They live and met in Philadelphia, but Raisa’s family is in the Finger Lakes area and these two love to travel.  We have been planning their Ithaca engagement session for months, and from the first time I met Raisa and David I fell in love with the sweet kind hearts they both have!

We met at the Cornell Botanic Gardens, which were so beautiful!  Even on the cloudy day, the colors were so vibrant!  We loved taking a walk through their smaller gardens, gates, and the building that looked English Tudor style!  I loved capturing the joy and love that these two shared :)

Then, the weather turned a little bit more rainy as we headed toward Buttermilk Falls State Park.  But our clear umbrella and the beautiful scenery didn’t disappoint!  We got to play in the leaves, and enjoy the beauty of the waterfall.    But most of all, I loved seeing how these two had a love that overcame the day and shone through every moment.  I know this love will make their marriage beautiful.

I hope you enjoy Raisa and David’s sweet story!  And I wish them every joy and love in their life together!
