Today I’m taking a quick break from Sally’s Cookie Palooza to show you something special.

Let’s rewind to January 26th 2013. Kevin and I took a trip to Deep Creek Lake, MD to get away from real life for a weekend. We stayed at Haley Farm Bed & Breakfast, a cozy little spot on a farm. Deep Creek had a snowy blizzard earlier that week.

We planned to take a trip to Swallow Falls State Park to snap some pictures of the snowy waterfall.

Kevin got down on one knee and the rest is history.

Our wedding is September 20th, 2014 and we’re getting married in the suburbs of Philadelphia, PA where I grew up. Even though I begged, Jude is not allowed to attend. :(

I show a picture of the bridesmaids dress in this post and the lace of my wedding dress here. My maids of honor are my two older sisters, and my bridesmaids are Kevin’s two sisters and my best friend Amy.

Megan Beth is our incredible wedding photographer and we had our engagement photos taken last month in Queenstown, MD. I’m thrilled to share a few of them today!  Thank you so much, Megan, for capturing this very special time for us!

    Congrats, and thanks for sharing these beautiful photos-I wish you the best!
    Enjoyed the Deep Creek photos too- brought back decades-old memories of a holiday family stay at a B & B and hike in the same snowy park, and the fun of warming up in a wood-fired hot tub with snow drifting down….

      Deep Creek in the winter is truly a magical place. I will always, always love it and hope to travel back there this winter! Thank you for the kind wishes, Anne!

    CONGRATULATONS! You engagement photos are stunning. I too love the fall and what a beautiful backdrop! I am engaged also but we haven’t set a date yet I am leaning toward to the fall because of the colors. Our song is “Honey Bee” and I want to base our theme on that! I lost both my parents this past year so that put things back a bit. My daughter is having brain surgery in the next few months and she recently got engaged too! I wish you the best of luck and a lifetime filled with love and happiness!

      Rosemary, congratulations to you during this special time with your groom-to-be! I am so sorry to hear about the hardships you’ve experienced lately, but the human spirit is strong and I wish you nothing but happiness in the years to come. Best of luck planning!

    The last photo is definitely my favourite, such a gorgeous couple… your photographer did an amazing job. Aaron and I have been married for just over two years now, seeing your photos makes me remember how exciting, frantic, beautiful and memorable the months leading up to the wedding were. SO happy that you and Kevin are on this pathway together now!!! September 2014 will be here before you know it (ah, so excited for you guys!) xxx

    Being a Marylander, you may be surprised that I didn’t make it up to Deep Creek Lake until August of this year for an extended weekend anniversary trip. I can see why it’s one of your favorite places in the world! We loved it too.

    All of the photographs are stunning! What a gorgeous backdrop in Queenstown and your ring? Wow!

        Oh, goodness, no. If we were real life friends I’d be fighting tooth and nail to have Jude there. It’s YOUR wedding. I’ve never had a pet or kids (or even a real wedding! :( ) but I imagine not having your dog there is like not having your kid there. Not cool.

        But on a brighter note, I just made your peanut butter cookies! YUM! 😀 Will write a review soon!
