Glencairn Garden Engagement Session: Aubree + Dakota

This Glencairn Garden engagement session has stolen my heart!  Not only are these two a gorgeous couple, but they also have the sweetest story!

Aubree and Dakota met in the 6th grade, after she and her family moved to Nashville.  When she got home from her first day of school, she told her mom that she would marry Dakota one day.  The two went to different high schools, but reconnected after graduation.  They have been inseparable ever since!

Although Dakota said he would never propose on a holiday, he worked up a plan and proposed on Christmas Eve.  He convinced Aubree that her present was too big to wrap so he blindfolded her and guided her outside.  When she removed the blindfold, Dakota was down on one knee.  All of her family was standing around and everyone cheered as Aubree said “yes” to her soul mate!

Now if that isn’t a Hallmark movie in the making, I don’t know what is!  I am overjoyed to share this part of their love story with you today and I can’t wait for their big wedding next spring!
