Yevelina + Arthur Proposal

Weeks leading up to the proposal, Arthur and I were going back and forth with ideas and planning on how to make this perfect. Since Yevelina’s favorite season is fall, Arthur definitely wanted to propose at a park with the changing leafs all around and wanted to make it simple and romantic. The biggest issue came to be is how we were going to get Yevelina to the park without it being weird or suspicions. Yevelina’s mom brought up a great idea. Yevelina always wanted to have senior pictures done but never had a chance to hire someone. So this was perfect! Yevelina and I go out, take some senior pictures around the park and slowly make our way to the pre-planned spot where Arthur will propose. She will have no idea!

The morning of, Arthur and I went out and walked around Frontier Park and went over how all of this was going to happen. Later on, I pick up Yevelina and our first stop was at a coffee shop to get some pictures before heading across the street to the park. While walking around the park, Yevelina didn’t suspect a single thing. Thinking that this was a senior session that was a gift from her mom, little did she know that very soon the will have the biggest surprise ever. When arriving to the big tree at Frontier, I had Yevelina face me, and when I gave Arthur his cue to come out of the bushes, he flipped a switch that turned on a lit heart that Yevelina was standing in the middle of. When Yevelina turned around seeing Arthur, she was completely shocked! Especially since Arthur is from Idaho. After saying a few sweet words and reading a self-written poem, Arther took a knee and asked Yevelina to married him, which obviously she said yes!

Sylwia + Andy Married | Ambassador | Wedding Photographers Erie Pa

Sylwia….

So, the day we met….I’ll never forget.

We had a couple of mutual friends in high school, although we went to different schools. We have 2 cute twin friends. One of which went to school with me and the other with Andy. We went to one of their many parties a week before we started college. I spotted Andy across the room & he spotted me. My Best friend told me to go talk to him as he was talking to one of my very good friends from High School. And So our Dear friend, Patton, introduced us. I’ll never forget he had to leave early that night and when he was leaving, he turned back and looked at me and smiled and I was the only one looking. It was like something out of a movie, something I’ll never forget. I knew then that wouldn’t be the last time I’d see him. It took us a while to start seeing each other. But we actually started talking on AOL Instant Messenger ( I was super shy then…What happened?!?!?)… Sweetsylver67 & Abomb521. Oh those were the days. We spent many evenings talking to each other and emailing each other during the day when we were busy in college and finally we went on our first date.

Sunday, June 30, 2013 is when Andy proposed. Well, it’s kind of embarrassing and let’s just say I spoiled the surprise!!… Andy travels for work and my big 3 0 was coming up. He had warned me a few weeks before that he may have to be out of town for a project the week of my birthday. It has happened before.

So Sunday, it had hit me that he would miss my big birthday. We had just gotten home from a cook out at my parents and he talked to my family about not being home for my birthday, so I got really upset and went right to bed and started crying. So we laid there and I cried, he was quiet. I was upset he would not be here for the actual birthday, but then asked if he would be there for my party a couple days after my birthday and he said he wouldn’t. So I cried even worse! (Pathetic, I know). He was really quiet and left the room. I thought, “Wow!!!” He came back in the room a couple minutes later and says, ” Get up “. With my back turned towards him, I said “NO!”. He says “GET UP!!” And I could tell he was smiling. I then thought, something is up! So I turn around, wipe my tears and sit and he’s smiling and shakes his head (as in, you managed to spoil this). I didn’t see anything in his hand though. He said, I couldn’t do this to you and see you this upset all week knowing I was gone, so I wanted to give you your present early and brings out a pretty, gray Vera Wang  box with a big white bow. I opened it and in it was a Gorgeous ring and he asked me to marry him! ….He was planning on surprising me and coming home early and asking me to marry him  before my family & friends on my birthday and he  (like he does from some of his work trips). And I was ok with it. At that point I didn’t care. I waited long enough;)

Amanda + Thomas Wedding | Erie Ambassador | Erie Pa Wedding Photographers

Amanda… Tom and I met in college at Edinboro University! We met in 2009. We had mutual friends and a few classes together. Tom and I were both Criminal Justice majors in college, which brought us together! We had class together the fall of 2009, which is when I started falling for him. It took a couple tries to get him interested in dating me, but I hooked him in February of 2010. And here we are today. Tom is not only my fiance, but he is my best friend and soulmate. I am the luckiest girl to have found such an amazing man!

Tom and I were the first two to start out our parasailing adventure. As we were getting lifted off the boat to start our 10 minutes of flying over the Gulf of Mexico my sister yelled at Tom “Hey, why don’t you propose up there!” I didn’t hear my sister yell this to him as I was to busy looking at what was around me…As we got lifted higher and higher…Tom says to me ” Amanda, did you hear what you sister said to me?” my reply was “No.” Tom then says ” Will you look at me.” As I turned away from looking down at the Gulf and looked at him, he spit a ring of out of his mouth and asks me to marry him!!! I was in the state of shock…of course I said YESSS!! and then told him to put the ring back in his mouth before he dropped it into the water!

Erin + David Married | Erie Ambassador | Erie Pa Wedding Photographer

Erin and David met through mutual friends at Allegheny College, where they both attended as Biology majors and Psychology minors. While it’s hard to pinpoint exactly when they first laid eyes on eachother, Erin recalls being Dave’s Microbiology TA and always thinking he was pretty cute. The couple didn’t officially start dating until November 14, 2009 where they had their first date over a plate of french fries! It was love at first bite! After that night, the couple was inseparable.

David surprised Erin with a stop at Allegheny College on their way back to Pittsburgh from a visit with Erin’s family after Christmas. The couple loves to stop at their alma mater, when they can, to take walks around the beautiful campus and reminisce about their time spent together there. It was a perfectly clear, starry night, with a fresh layer of white snow on the ground. Absolutely stunning. The couple strolled around campus talking of all that has changed since their time at Allegheny and about all of the exciting things that would be to come. As they walked down the brick path, towards Brooks Hall, David got down on one knee and proposed, completely surprising Erin! After a few happy tears and a joyful, “ARE YOU KIDDING ME!?”, Erin said YES and Dave made her the happiest girl in the world!
