Jon & Melissa Engaged

Blitheowld Mansion Engagement Session

Their engagement story is like something straight out of a Bachelor episode, something only tv magic could make up. But yet it wasn't, it was very much real and very much planned by Jon, Melissa's thoughtful fiance. During an annual trip to St. John's last year, Jon planned the ultimate surprise proposal for Melissa. Waking up early one morning Jon and Melissa sneaked away for a snorkel trip to a secluded island only to find that they had to swim to the beach. It was there after a lovely stroll through the sand that Jon got down on one knee and asked Melissa to marry him. A trip to the Virgin Islands, a surprise sailing excursion, a swim to a private island and one BEAUTIFUL engagement ring all make for an amazing and unforgettable proposal!! Reading their story just made me swoon (and then wish I was on a Caribbean beach sipping a cocktail;)). 

This August I'll be joining these two for their nautical inspired wedding but first we had to have an engagement session!! I met up with Jon and Melissa at the beautiful grounds of Blithewold Mansion the and we explored the expansive and property together! Enjoy their garden inspired session!!
