On October 2, I met Meredith and AJ for their engagement session at Shelburne Farms in Shelburne and Oakledge Park in Burlington, VT. Both of these locations were really special to this wonderful couple, and I was so honored to help them make more memories here.
We went to Oakledge Park first. This is the place they walk to nightly from their house. I had never been, so it was fun to explore it with them. We discovered this awesome treehouse as we were getting ready to head to the farm.
Next, we went to Shelburne Farms, where Meredith & AJ got engaged. AJ got thwarted in his attempts to propose a few times but eventually got Meredith to the Inn at the farm where he proposed in the garden. He carried the ring in his pocket, and we both agreed that someone would make millions if they made a flat box to safely carry the ring.
Meredith and AJ are just such a fun, warm couple that are so easy to be around. They met while they were students at Connecticut College and have been together ever since! Meredith is studying to be a nurse practitioner and hoping to specialize in pediatrics (in fact, she is interning at Norah’s pediatrician!) so we had fun talking about babies and Norah and different stages.
They are getting married at the Omni Hotel on Mount Washington next year on August 15. Meredith’s beloved deceased grandfather’s birthday was 8/14/1914, so they chose their wedding date to mirror that: 8/15/15! I can’t wait to see them again on their special day!
