Weddings are all about bringing two families together into one new family. And if there’s one thing that true about the American family, it’s that no two are alike. When Susan fell in love with Tim he was the total package, complete with two boys overflowing with energy and love. Susan clearly adores these two little fellas as much as the big one and they adore her right back. So it made total sense when Susan and Tim mentioned bring them along for their Mount Falcon engagement session.
I first met with Susan and Tim at Logan Coffee House (they had coffee and I had a big ol’ breakfast burrito because, hi, #foodobsessed). We talked about how they met, their vision for their Lyons Farmette wedding, and what it’s like to parent two boys. When they mentioned bringing them along to their engagement session and making it a family affair I wasn’t at all surprised. I gave them my recommendation on how to get the best from all of us.
“We should plan an activity,” I told them, “something that will give them a direction and an outlet for their excitement and energy. Something that’s more than just, ‘Stand here and smile.'”
We talked about all kinds of activities. I think the list I gave them was around twenty suggestions. Apple picking, a carnival, even cutting down a Christmas tree. Susan said that hiking was an activity they all enjoyed together already, so it was the perfect choice.
Mount Falcon is obviously beautiful in the early fall (though it felt more like high summer, oof!). But it has a totally different look in the winter! If you’re curious about its winter face you can check out Earin and Andrea’s Snowstorm Engagement!
This Mount Falcon engagement sure packs a bunch of yummy golden light, amiright?! Not just from the sun either – it’s shining out of all of these beautiful faces.
Weddings are a beautiful opportunity to celebrate the making of a new family. Susan and Tim are clearly making a special one together. I could not be more excited for their wedding next June!!
