Captured by O’ Bryan Photography, this Bolivar, Missouri engagement session captures a truly adorable couple surrounded by beautiful nature and open fields. Brett and Abbi are set to wed on June 4th of this year with a great big love for each other, and even bigger plans for their happily ever after.
Meeting two summers ago at the St. Louis project where both of their churches served together, Brett and Abbi became mutually interested in each other. They kept in touch after the St. Louis project and became friends over the following year. During the next summer, they both went on separate trips to Peru. They shared stories of their adventures abroad and spoke to each other often. Before they knew it, they had spoken everyday for an entire month and became even more intrigued with one another. These two love birds have enjoyed a beautiful relationship ever since. Now that you know how these two met, it’s time to hear the proposal story. I know you’ve been waiting for that part.
Abbi’s favorite place in Bolivar, Missouri is The Cliffs. Brett and Abbi had gone there several times and they both love to climb to the top. So when it came time to propose, Brett knew the perfect place to ask the love of his life a super important question. One fine afternoon, Claren, Abbi’s close friend, took her out to the cliffs and climbed to the top. As she turned the corner with no idea at all, there was Brett to her surprise waiting to propose! He said, “Abigail, today you have been my girlfriend for 11 months and 11 days, and now I would like to ask you to be my wife.” Abbi speechless, as many of us girls are in such an iconic moment, squeaked out a yes!
