Harkness Park Engagement: Stephanie & Fady

Photography

The lovely Stephanie and Fady have been happily engaged since July 19, 2015! They met on an online dating site (amazing right?!) and hit it off, getting to know one another for a few months until they finally met in person. Over time their love only grew stronger, both being passionate about their faith, and the well being of her son Oliver. Fady decided to propose on a beautiful summer evening in Mystic, at Ender’s Island. The church grounds and retreat center  has beautiful gardens and a prayer walk right by the water. As there could not have been a more perfect atmosphere to ask her to be his wife; he shared his heart to Stephanie in the sweetest way, expressing his desire to continue his life journey with her, and then got on one knee! …I love it.
Fast forward a few months, and here we are at the gorgeous Harkness Park, in Waterford, CT. It was a little chilly of an evening, but the sunset was beautiful and we were all excited! Of course little Oliver came along, for he is such an important part of their relationship and soon to be marriage. He was absolutely adorable, and made their images that much more precious…

 

See, he was so adorable and full of excitement!
