Planning Lindsay and Kevin's engagement session with bride-to-be Lindsay was SO MUCH FUN! Don't get me wrong, I love when brides ask me to pick out a location for their engagement session, but I also love to collaborate with the couple to find a spot that is not only beautiful, but that has meaning to them. After a few weeks of searching, Lindsay suggested Cross Estate Gardens literally the same day a friend of mine recommended it to me! It was fate! So, on the hottest evening of the year (I think it was 102 degrees!) we ventured out together to explore the beautiful Cross Estate Gardens in Bernardsville, NJ. It was magical! Beautiful gardens, lavender fields, stone steps leading to moss paths, vintage doorways leading to even more gorgeous gardens...this place was a dream! Lindsay and Kevin were amazing and kept smiling in spite of the heat. They even brought a bottle of champagne to keep cool and celebrate their engagement! They have been together for more than 10 years (high school sweethearts), so when I put them in a modified prom pose, they laughed because they actually went to prom together! I had the best time getting to know them and I can't wait for their Ryland Inn wedding next year! xo, Keri
