Devon and Andrew got married in a small ceremony several years ago… in a fake wedding with a bunch of children present. Their wedding rings were ring pops. I’m not sure they were even dating at the time – but it must have been fate because now these two are engaged. They’re preparing for their actual wedding and those same children (who are much older now) will be there to witness their wedding for real this time!
Now you might be curious about this fake wedding. Why did they have a fake wedding? These two work at the Boys and Girls Club, and during one of their summer days with the kids, this fake wedding became a fun activity for the day. The kids went all out making decorations and everything. Naturally, their real wedding day is going to be very kid friendly and I can’t wait!
Andrew proposed to Devon in one of their favorite places in the world – Peninsula State Park in Door County! Don’t worry, this time he used an ACTUAL ring instead of a ring pop! Since the place holds such a special place in their heart, they wanted to take their engagement photos there too!
These two were joined by their adorable fluffy pup, Rouge! It was quite the adventure! As soon as they showed up we heard thunder in the distance and saw lightning streak across the sky. Then the rain drops started POURING down.
We waiting out the rain and I’m so glad we did because once the storm passed, it felt like we had the entire park to ourselves! And it was so. much. fun. I’m so glad these two were up for an adventure because we weren’t going to let the rain get in our way of having a good time. Devon and Andrew have a contagious energy that can make anyone smile! No wonder they’re so good with the kids!
Thank you Devon and Andrew for making the drive in the pouring rain for these. It was SO worth it. And it made me even more excited for your wedding day next September! Enjoy a few of my favorite pics from their session!
