Rachel + Brent | engaged

We’re so excited to be a part of Brent + Rachel’s upcoming wedding. Here are some of our favorite images that we photographed on the farm where they got engaged. It’s such a beautiful location; I can’t wait to revisit this fall for the wedding! Here’s a little bit about this couple, in their own words:

Where did you meet your fiancé?

Brent: We met at a tacky Christmas party through the introduction of a friend. It was basically a setup.

Rachel: I purposefully didn’t wear anything too tacky because I knew I would be meeting him that night….dress to impress philosophy!

What was your first date?

Brent: My favorite restaurant in Memphis, Boscos.

Rachel: Its our “go to” date spot now. We sit at the brick oven bar watching the chef toss the pizza dough and drink wine (beer for Brent).

Was it love at first sight?

Brent: I was definitely enamored with Rachel. She was leaving Memphis the next day to visit her family in Chattanooga, and I didn’t pass up on the opportunity to ask her if I call her over the break and take her out on a date when she returned to Memphis post-holidays.

Rachel: I could never fall in love at first sight – but I thought he was handsome and there was definitely a connection. It was probably love at “first month” though. I knew pretty early that he was the man for me.

Where did you get engaged?

Brent: We got engaged on Rachel’s family farm. Rachel’s dad proposed to her mom on the Dyer farm, and I wanted to propose in a similar way because I thought it would mean a lot to her. We also had spent lot of time together at the farm. It is our happy place, you could say.

Rachel: My dad proposed to my mom at a tree in the woods on our farm, carving “Kate Will You Marry Me” into the tree. The tree fell a few years ago from a tornado that hit our farm, so Brent couldn’t carry on the exact same tradition but wanted to propose in similar way. He proposed to me at the “Saddle Tree” which is loved tree on our farm that my sister and I have always love to climb.
