ALLISON + BRIAN | KELTON HOUSE ENGAGEMENT MINI, COLUMBUS OHIO WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER

HAPPY WEDDING DAY TO ALLISON + BRIAN!!

Your day is finally here and we couldn't be more excited! Check out their awesome engagement session and stay tuned for their wedding previews. 

For Allison and Brian's shoot we decided to try out the Kelton House and were not disappointed!! I had been texting Allison for months and had never even met her, I was so excited to finally put a face to the name...and all the texts really. When I finally spotted her she was wearing the cutest dress, heels, and was rocking her curly hair. I instantly knew the shoot was about to be awesome!

I asked Allison to send me their love story and I found myself smiling while I read. I think you will too. 

ALLISON + BRIAN'S LOVE STORY

We met working at JCP in the children’s department. I was a seasonal employee working while I was on break from college. He was hired on and I helped train him on what to do on the floor. Brian made working retail fun and there was no denying that we enjoyed each other’s company right from the start. One day, we were closing up the department for the day when I snuck up behind him and hit him on the back with a shirt covered in glitter. Well, that had done it…from then on, anytime there was a glittery pile of shirts in the department, you could bet it wouldn’t be too long before there was a full on glitter war!

When it was time for me to go back to school, Brian made me promise to keep in touch. I didn’t. I was determined that he would remain just a work friend. We went months without talking. Ok, the truth is Brian would message me on Facebook and I would ignore him...for months…oops! I didn’t realize he would later turn out to be the love of my life!

Finally, summer came and I was back at Penney’s in the children’s department. I was so happy to see all my old work friends again. I had just assumed Brian didn’t work there anymore. Then during one of my shifts, he showed up, and we hit it off like we had in winter…glitter fights and laughing as we worked. Brian finally convinced me that I should let him take me on a real date (something more than buying my lunch at the food court in the mall). What followed was not just one date, but a whole summer full of fun and laughter. It was the best summer I’ve ever had, complete with hiking, zoo trips, cave exploring, mini golfing, and getting lost on long car rides.

After that summer, I of course needed to go back to college to finish my degree. I didn’t ignore Brian this time. He would come to visit me at school and keep me company while I studied, or take me out for a good meal to give me a reprieve from the cafeteria food. It was only after months of “dating” that I finally agreed to be his girlfriend. And months after that I finally said “I love you.”

PROPOSAL STORY

Long story short, we dated all through the rest of my college years. By graduation we knew we wanted to someday get married, but I made Brian promise to not propose to me until I graduated…then until I lived on my own for a while…then until I got a job…then until I got a promotion. He patiently waited until I felt I was finally ready.

The day he proposed was magical…literally, we were at the Magic Kingdom at Disney in front of Cinderella’s castle (my favorite place in the whole world!). He got down on one knee and all he had to say was “will you?” All I could muster between my surprise and tears was “of course!”

And here we are, happily engaged, excitedly planning our wedding, and ready (finally after over 4 years) to be Mr. and Mrs.!
