Emily and James met like many people do, in school. Well to be more specific, they were both in college at the time, but actually met first at a pizza restaurant while eating and drinking beer. Beer has been a trend lately with my engagement sessions. I’m not complaining by any means, just thinking out loud. Emily and James were both involved in debate teams, so after a year and half of debating, they finally decided to start dating.
For their engagement we decided on Chattanooga, Tennessee, since that was a pivotal location and important part of their story. Both Emily and James love traveling and decided to take a trip up to Chattanooga for a weekend. As they waited for dessert at the Terminal Brewhouse, James pulled out a poem he had written for Emily about them and Chattanooga. She started crying as he read and at the end pulled out a white box and popped the question!
That brings us back to the Terminal Brewhouse and Choo Choo Hotel where they stayed. Like all great engagement sessions, we started off with beer! I mean we were at a brewery. The staff were super awesome and let us do whatever we wanted. Luckily it was real mellow when we started. By the time we left it was getting packed. We headed over to the Choo Choo Hotel for a quick wardrobe change and then made our way down to Coolidge Park to take advantage of the amazing weather.
We failed to realize it was prom and ended up drowning in hundreds of puffy, colorful dresses bedazzled with more bling than Little Wayne’s mouth. Fortunately, for us, most everyone was too lazy to walk a good ways down the paths, so we were able to secure ourselves a number of relaxed areas. Here are just a few of my favorite photos from our trip.
