Since they first started planning their big day, photography has been a priority for Brielle and Blaine. They chose Jessica Lorren Organic Photography to capture the romance of their engagement and brought their pups, Charlie and Sophia, for a fun day at Dubois Park. The natural beauty of the area and access to picnics and walks near the beach made it a perfect spot for this dreamy session.
From Brielle: Blaine and I met in high school through a shared group of mutual friends. After graduation we both headed off to FSU where we lived in the same dorm and spent most of our days together. During sophomore year I transferred to UCF. We remained close and would see each other often.
Two years later that I realized I was falling for Blaine, but timing was definitely not on my side. I just signed up to study abroad in Ireland and he had an internship in Colorado. We both realized how much we missed each other and began to speak everyday. I was lucky enough to wake up to a quote and a message from him. He never missed a day. Thousands of miles apart, we fell in love and the moment we got back we were inseparable. I saved every note and message in a journal that I will cherish forever.
“I was one of the lucky few who fell in love with their best friend. I always knew he would make some girl remarkably happy someday. Ten years later, that lucky girl turns out to be me. ”
Blaine planned a sweet proposal for his bride-to-be despite her feeling under the weather. He surprised her with a sunrise drive to the Fairchild Botanical Gardens in Miami, found the perfect spot for a picnic and proposed over peanut butter and jelly sandwiches and bubbly. Yeah, that's pretty adorable right there.
Brielle and Blaine are planning their upcoming wedding at The Addison in Boca Raton which is also the site of their very first date. Best of luck, you guys!
