I love, LOVE repeat offenders on the blog. By repeat offenders I mean vendors who come back to showcase their work. Today, we have a sweet engagement from Digna Toledo Photography with coordination from Emma with Prestige Affairs Events. The duo has done it again..this collaboration is so much fun to see. Candace & Drew met through a mutual friend, she purchased a milk shake for him and the rest is history.
From the Coordinator:
Having met over a decade ago at Fairleigh Dickenson University, Drew and Candace have been madly in love ever since. Their mutual friend, Shelton Cleaves, introduced them in 2003 and they hit it off immediately. ‘I brought him the best milkshake ever,’ says Candace, ‘and the rest was history. By 2012, the couple had been together for nine happy years and in that time they’d been blessed with a beautiful son, Master Aiden. Come Christmas Eve of that year, Master Aiden presented his mother with an early Christmas gift, a jewelry box. Candice smiled, thinking it was the pair of earrings she’d been asking for, but once she opened it she realized the box was empty. When she looked up in confusion she found Andrew bent down on one knee before her, asking for her hand in marriage. The couple’s engagement session was captured by the phenomenal Digna Toledo of Digna Toledo Photography. The milestone event was coordinated by the couple’s Wedding Coordinator, Emma Pierre-Louis of Prestige Affairs Event Production, and in collaboration with Digna the pair came up with a memorable concept for the shoot. They decided that it was important that the couple’s personalities be incorporated into the photos, along with things that were of significance to them. ‘We decided to go with a couple of places throughout NJ to incorporate all of the elements that captured the couples Sweet, Classic, and Adventurous love.’ says Emma. The ‘Sweet’ reflects the milkshake Candice presented Andrew with on their very first meeting, the ‘Classic’ is a representation of Coco-cola Classic bottles, these bottles never change just like their love, and the ‘Adventurous’ symbols Andrew’s passion for motorcycles and the adventurous side of the couple’s love.
