I had the absolute best time photographing this sunflower inspired engagement session in Central Park of Morris County! Vittoriana and Marcel are the absolute sweetest couple and we had so much fun exploring the park together.
The Love Story
Vittoriana and Marcel met on Twitter! They are both avid Twitter users and had a lot of friends through the app that shared a connection through music. They made so many friends through Twitter because so many mutual followers would attend the same music festivals and they would meet up and go together! Vittoriana said Marcel was so personable and funny right from the beginning. After they started following each other, the two began talking on gmail. Eventually one of their mutual friends invited them for a drink in Hoboken. They were so excited to meet face to face and become friends face to face. They started going to concerts and music festivals together and started dating!
Vittoriana and Marcel have been together for 5 years! They just celebrated their 5 year anniversary in August. On their first official date, Marcel made plans to take Vittoriana to a cute little French Cafe called Tartinery in Nolita, and then we walked to Little Italy for gelato. However, prior to their date, something out of the ordinary happened! Marcel went to pick Vittoriana from her house. Vittoriana thinks her dog was marking his territory, because as soon as he saw Marcel, he began to pee on Vittoriana! Needless to say, this automatically broke the ice between the two!
Mohonk Mountain, NY Proposal
Marcel proposed to Vittoriana after over 4 years of being together! The year the couple got engaged, they had traveled all over the world including places like Montreal, San Diego, Barcelona, Amsterdam and Tel Aviv. She said she was disappointed the proposal didn’t happen in any of these locations and was beginning to wonder when it would happen after being together for so long! It turns out, Marcel was waiting until October 20th in order to propose on the anniversary of the date they first said “I love you”. He took her on a hike to Mohonk Mountain where he had a photographer ready to capture the moment! Both families were waiting at the house in order to celebrate afterwards! Needless to say, it was an amazing day!
Central Park of Morris County Engagement
Vittoriana and Marcel’s Engagement Session was a Sunflower inspired session, which was perfect for summertime! The shoot was planned by Cameron Slade who is an aspiring event planner and one of my 2021 brides! We had the beautiful sunflower bouquet and flower crown made by Lindsey Vandevier at Rosaspina Florals. If you’re considering bringing a bouquet for your engagement session, DO IT!! You will absolutely not regret it!
I am so excited to share some of my favorites from Vittoriana and Marcels beautiful sunflower engagement shoot at Central Park of Morris County!
