Seems like engagements are back in full swing! So thankful to finally be meeting our couples in person at their sessions. Jeff + Chelsea have been on the schedule for quite a while and their Barclay Farmstead engagement session in Cherry Hill, New Jersey did not disappoint! They brought their little puppy, Combo, who is a little nugget of cuteness. Jeff + Chelsea also brought their A-game and completely rocked their portraits! Their session was so much fun and filled with endless smiles and laughter. It made us even more excited for their destination wedding in Mexico next February!
Chelsea: Jeff proposed on our third anniversary, February 9th, 2019! He arranged for my youngest sister to come pick me up for the day to go shopping. My sister Becca & I spent the day at the Promenade in Marlton, NJ while Jeff, my other sister (Melissa), and mom decorated the entire downstairs of our house. He pulled out all of our favorite pictures, decorated with tons of proposal decor, and sprinkled 5000 red rose petals from the front door to the dining room. When I got home, I heard our favorite song (Die a Happy man) playing. I followed the rose petals to find Jeff down on one knee in the dining room! His proposal was so sweet & I’ll never forget how special he made me feel! The room was filled with pictures of us, decorations, balloons & champagne. Then we partied the night away with an awesome engagement party! I was super surprised & very, very happy!
Chelsea: My advice for future couples is to plan the wedding that the both of you have always dreamed of! It can be difficult to put aside others’ opinions, but it’s important to plan your special day the way you want to plan it. At the end of the day, your wedding should be a reflection of your love for each other & the start of a new chapter together!
We cannot wait to celebrate with you both in Mexico next year! It is going to be such an incredible wedding, but until then, we hope you love just a few of our favorites from your engagement session at Barclay Farmstead.
