Ariel & Keith’s Rustic Engagement

We are excited to share with you a rustic, vintage-inspired engagement shoot by Mariana from Kismis Ink Photography through Two Bright Lights.

Here’s their story:

Keith and I met in 2008 thanks to ultimate frisbee. At the time I was very into the sport and would set up games all time and had a ton of contacts. One of my friends invited him to play with us and at first I played hard to get and ignored him so many times! But he was very patient with me and continued being a great friend. He always was wanting to hear how I was doing, and we would talk on the phone for hours. I felt like he actually cared, which was big for me. The summer of 08 was the summer we fell in love, literally. We would go to the beach and skim almost everyday and hang out. Eventually I gave in and admitted I had a crush on him, but more than that I had a deep friendship as well. He is my best friend and my lover. He asked me out on September 7th of 2008, we “dated” for 2 years, and on our 2 year anniversary he proposed!  He is truly the love of my life and we are both so excited to be able to share our special day with all of our family and friends!

Their wedding will be in a ranch with rustic colors and feathers throughout. Ariel found her e-session dress at Goodwill and had a vision for what she wanted. With the help of her mom, she created her perfect dress. They also decided to bring a few items they’ll be using for decoration at their wedding to their e-session to incorporate the same whimsical feel and style. Keith created the wooden signs and had his mom paint the words on to include in the e-sessionso that they could creatively use the images in their Save-the-dates and invitations. Keith’s ALDO shoes were a special gift from Ariel and are a true representation of the groom’s vintage style.
