Engagement: {Katie & Matt Part 2}

Katie has been working at skating rinks since before she was even a teenager and in 2006 Matt began working at the same rink with her.  They started dating soon afterward.  Matt knew he wanted to propose in a unique and personal way.  With the help of Katie's sister, he was able to completely surprise her!  After not being able to get a hold of Matt, Katie was surprised to find him in their bedroom on one knee with a ring in his hands.  He had hung pictures and sayings about the two of them from the balloons and printed out the lyrics to their song and hung it on one of the walls.  And right in front of her on the main wall it said "Will you marry me?"  Katie, of course, cried and said yes and they celebrated afterward by having dinner and their favorite restaurant.  

Since Katie and Matt had met at a rink, instead of doing an outfit change at our first shoot we decided to do another shoot at the skating rink that they work at.  We were able to get the place to ourselves and it was a blast!

Katie and Matt - I can't wait for your October Hartford City Hall wedding! It's going to be so gorgeous and a ton of fun!
