Kinsee and Eric wanted to feel as if they escaped the hustle and bustle of the city, so we located this beautiful hidden paradise in North Georgia as center stage for this amazing engagement session! The couple has chosen their wedding theme to incorporate a woodsy rustic glam style. When locating Hightower Falls, we knew that the location would be a perfect blend of nature and rustic charm!
The couple wanted to incorporate a little glam and fashion during their intimate engagement session to include photos near the cascading waterfall, the mill ruins that have attracted people for over 150 years since 1850 and to top it all off, a little Pittsburgh Steelers Love! Kinsee made sure to have a new shoe for every outfit change, and you just have to love a bride who comes prepared in the woods with four different pairs of fabulous shoes!
Let’s start at the beginning. How did you two first meet?
We met through a mutual friend at work. We’d known each other for years, but never got to talk until a friend invited us to dinner. The rest is history….
What makes your relationship special? What makes your relationship unique?
We are epitome of opposites attract. However, we have a common pillar of faith in God. We love to travel, adventure outdoors, create projects together, and watch Steelers Football. If we had to sum up our love from a movie line, it would be God, Family, Football (Best Man).
How did you know Eric was the one? When did you first know this in your relationship?
I knew he was the one when my mother told me “Don’t let that man man get away, they don’t make them like that anymore”. It was a confirmation of my exact sentiments! He is patient, loving, and easy to please.
Give us all the details about the proposal. How and where did it happen? Was it a surprise? What was the planning process?
I planned my 40th Birthday Party for months. My family and friends were there with me to celebrate. Apparently, Eric had been doing some planning on his own. After all the guest had arrived and were all on the dance floor, he interrupted the party and told everyone tonight was the night. He told me how much he loved me and could not imagine his life without me. He got down on one knee and asked me to marry him. Of course, I said yes!
We’re all about the bling… Tell us all about that ring!
My ring is a 1.3 carot princess cut diamond with a platinum band. It is a perfect touch of class and elegance.
Are you excited to start planning your wedding day? Do you have any ideas in mind yet?
Our wedding date is set and it is an industrial, rustic, romantic, chic theme. It fits our old school, outdoorsy lifestyle. It will have tons of romantic flair with candles and wood accents.
