Sarah and Brad’s engagement session was at Shaker Village in Harrodsburg, Kentucky. They had a beautiful spring day for their session and a gorgeous glowy sunset at the end. We loved walking around the grounds at Shaker Village, getting to know Sarah and Brad, and hearing all about their love story!
Sarah and Brad matched on Bumble. Sarah noticed on Brad’s profile that he grew up in Fort Worth, Texas, only a couple hours from where she grew up in Longview, Texas. So Sarah’s first message to him was about how it was great to see a fellow Texan in Lexington!
They first met on a Sunday afternoon at Blue Stallion Brewing Company. They learned so much about each other, including that they both moved to Lexington from Texas in the same year (2013) and while in college, they both studied Spanish in the same town in Spain (Salamanca). They also realized their paths had crossed a couple of years prior when they both attended the same 80s party in Lexington.
After hitting it off during their initial meeting, they had their first “real” date the following weekend. They went to the Distillery District and did axe throwing at Battle Axes, followed by dinner and drinks at Elkhart Tavern. Over the next several months of dating, they were drawn to each other’s authenticity, kindness, and intention – and fell in love.
Together Sarah and Brad like to travel, visit museums, aquariums, tour distilleries/breweries and try new bourbon and beer, go to UK sporting events, cook together, make brunch every Sunday morning, and spend time with their dogs.
On the day Brad proposed, they were able to spend the whole day together. They went to a morning workout class, enjoyed lunch, and watched a matinee movie, followed by drinks and dinner at ItalX. Sarah thought this big day was to celebrate her new job, so she was so surprised when after dinner, they walked across the street to Limestone Hall, where Brad took Sarah up to the front, got on one knee, and asked her to marry him! Of course, she said yes 🙂
