Colonial Williamsburg, Williamsburg, VA- Melanie and Chris, Part Two

These two adorable history lovers make Colonial Williamsburg look so good! Due to rain, we rescheduled their formal engagement session. (If you missed their rain shoot, check it out here!) We talked, and picked out a new date and it couldn’t have been better! The sun was out and Chris and Melanie made DIY Save-the-date items! Love it!

Oh, and wait to you hear part of their proposal story!

Ahh! Look at that light!

I got Melanie to write out their proposal story for me, and it was just too sweet not to share a little piece of it,

I looked up and saw him standing at the base of the stairs wearing a full suit – tie and dress shoes and all – with something behind his back. My heart dropped to my stomach and started beating frantically. I froze. Chris’ mother sitting next to me had to push me to get up. I walked towards him but my hands were already shaking and and my insides were very quickly freaking out so I stopped a few feet short. He came towards me and started to say something but at that point, I had already blanked out. I can’t remember for the life of me what he said! Not one word. He could’ve been speaking pig-Latin or something and it would’ve all sounded the same to me. He handed me a little box, which I opened to see not a ring, but a small piece of paper that read “always and forever”. I smiled and started to cry. When I looked up from the box, he was already down on one knee, with a smaller box in his hands, the prettiest ring I had ever seen inside, and from his lips came my present “Will you marry me?”
Now, if this had been a movie, I would have cried “Yes!” and we would’ve kissed, slowly fading into the credits. I’m much too awkward for movies. Tears were quickly falling and I attempted to cover my face with my hand while at the same time trying to say yes, though I am told nothing actually came out of my mouth. I then tried to nod, but only succeeded in looking like a circus seal. It wasn’t until my father said from somewhere behind me “Melanie, you have to say something” that I partially regained consciousness enough to where a solid yes left my lips, my hand fell to receive the ring,…-Melanie

These two just melt my heart!

Aren't these cans such a cute idea?!

These two were so much fun to be around that we all (Daniel included) got dinner afterwards! We now have a new spot for Philiy Chesse Steak sandwiches and chessy fries! yay!
