McGill Rose Garden Engagements: Jodi + Logan

This was my first trip to the McGill Rose Garden and I fell in love!  Jodi almost chose this as her wedding venue, but decided to use it as the engagement session location instead!  She loves the garden vibe so this was perfect!  It might have been rainy, but it sure was beautiful!

After making our way through the garden, we headed out on the street for some city shots!  Jodi’s outfits were amazing and she looks like a goddess!  I think I can speak for everyone when I say, we’re all captivated by her beauty!

Jodi and Logan’s families have know each other for over 12 years, but they didn’t start talking until 2 years ago.  He lived in Charlotte at the time, but was staying at his parents’ Shelby home temporarily because he had just broken his leg.  I tell you that because when they finally went on their first date, Jodi had to drive because he was still wearing a boot from his injury.  It was a first date they’ll never forget!

Logan proposed on Jodi’s birthday while they were vacationing at the beach.  Jodi wasn’t expecting anything so the proposal was a huge surprise!  He asked for her hand with his mother’s ring that she wore for the first 20 years of marriage, which made it extra special!

After photographing these two at a styled wedding last year, it’s so fun to be a part of their real wedding festivities now!  I can’t wait for their big day in August and I’m honored to share their engagement session on the blog today!
