Thanks to Alexis Stein Photo, one of our pro-gay vendors, for submitting this summery but funny engagement shoot.
Courtney had to spend 4 months in Massachusetts because of her job and before she left, she gave Kelly her high school ring to wear on her neck while she was away. Kelly continued to wear it even after Courtney returned. Because of a promise made to Kelly’s mother, when it came time for them to move to NY, Courtney knew it was time to make that big commitment. While Kelly was in the shower one morning, Courtney replaced her high school ring with the engagement ring. Kelly came out of the shower and began to get dressed. She didn’t get very far before she noticed the ring. Courtney took it and got down on one knee and said, “Baby, will you be my wife?” Kelly said “Yes…. but I need to get dressed first.” If that’s not love, what is? : )
We met on OkCupid.com just after Courtney moved from NY to Seattle (where Kelly is from). Courtney was in NY on a mini vacation the first time she message Kelly. They exchanged e-mails for about 3 weeks before Courtney returned to Seattle to take the first walk around Greenlake with what would someday be, her wife.
