We ventured into Mountains on the North Cascade Highway through the super snowy Stevens Pass and into the lovely Bavarian village of Leavenworth for Ashley & Gabe’s winter Engagement session! Not even the snow storm and ice could stop us from getting some amazing pictures for these two.
Ashley and Gabe met, crazy as it sounds, as roommates! When they both moved to Seattle for work, they didn’t know anyone else in the area so one of them took out a Craigslist add and the rest is a whirlwind of laughter and love. Like these two are brave to find a roommate through craigslist, because we’ve all heard of have that one “crazy craigslist story!”
Their proposal is such a romantic tale! Gabe planned this big long weekend trip to La Conner full of nice dinners and fun, where Ashley was sure he was going to propose but when the trip came to and end and they drove home and he hadn’t she was a bit disappointed. But that wasn’t his last surprise of her birthday weekend! When they got home he had one more gift for her, an engagement ring and the proposal she was hoping for!
We were so excited when they asked if they could bring their adorable little dog, Frannie, to their Leavenworth Engagement session, so of course without a second thought we said yes! She brought so much laughter and fun to their engagement in the snowy mountains, and even tried to steal the show a bit!
Ashley & Gabe, you two are such a sweet and thoughtful couple! Always engaging in the moment and not afraid to laugh fully! It’s one thing to connect with your clients, but a whole other level to connect over lunch about Snowboarding and Gilmore girls! We are so excited for your April wedding at the Majestic Inn and Spa!
