Barrett and Hannah are both Cornellians, people who are studying/have studied at Cornell. It's where they met and fell in love and it plays a HUGE part in not only their courtship but their engagement as well. As Hannah tells it, she and Barrett never had a relationships on their mind, but when they met, all that changed.
Hannah was, like most freshman, unsure of her feelings towards all the new change college can bring. Being a freshman can be hard and sometimes lonely and what often brought Hannah comfort were the famous chimes that would ring throughout Cornell's campus. These chimes played a huge part in encouraging Hannah during those first few months at Cornell.
Barrett, who is very musical, was also drawn to same chimes that brought Hannah so much joy her first year on campus. Through his time at Cornell he became involved in the very selective team that plays the infamous bells (he's currently head chime master!). Well, when Hannah found this out she was immediately drawn to Barrett and saw it as a sign. Just as the chimes played a huge part in her first year on campus, Barrett was about to play a huge part in the rest of her life. Ahh, ivy league love;).
While Barrett and Hannah live outside of New England much of Hannah's family still reside in the area. Both Barrett and Hannah love the old charm of New England and especially love the fall here. Fittingly, Hannah wanted to take what she loved most about New England in the fall and turn it into an engagement session. So with a little bit of inspiration and the help of Brooksby Farm we created an ode to all things fall in New England. Hot apple cider, a cozy blanket, the changing leaves, a wool scarf. I absolutely loved how adorable these two are and how each hand picked item helped to pull the session together.
So without further adieu I giver you two Cornell lovebirds and their quaint and cozy orchard inspired engagement session. Enjoy!!
