While we’re still very much snowed in here in Charleston, this Florida engagement session is making us wistful for warmer days. The Ganeys captured this session at Vizcaya Gardens which has no shortage of beautiful backdrops and greenery. Read even more about this couples love story below!How did you meet? We met at a pretty lackluster bar in Chicago on April 4, 2013. Complete strangers, not even 3rd degree connections on LinkedIn, he was out being a wingman for one of his friends while I was at a friend’s birthday. The catch 22 being that I wasn’t even going to head out that night knowing it would be my grandmother’s last – but my mom convinced me staying in would do nothing. Indeed that night was her last, but I know she secretly brought us together as soon as she became an angel.What is your proposal story? Steven’s a bit of an idea guy and tried to make quite a few elaborate ideas come to life, each one meeting road block after road block. Eventually he “settled” by renting a private boat for the morning to cruise around Miami. It was such a fun day with perfect weather. Secretly, he had a good friend sneak into our apartment to set up the proposal. When we got back from our fun adventure, he had set up pictures everywhere of all the various places we had traveled to, champagne and roses – and got down on one knee!
