Paige had a vision for her engagement location that included an old mansion and garden scenery. Since most of the locations on Long Island that fit this description require an expensive permit, I found a way to make it work for her without breaking the bank.
The first place that came to mind was my old school, Dowling College. The only problem was, I was not really sure if we were technically allowed on the property, because the school closed in 2016. Luckily, the security guards watching the grounds were nice enough to let us use the property.
This location was actually perfect for their love story as well. Brett and Paige met on their first day of college. They lived across the hall from each other. I love their story! When you start college you are entering into a world of new beginnings, friendships and relationships. Who would have thought Paige would have met her future husband on the very first day of their new start.
When Brett decide to propose to Paige, he brought her back to the college where they first met. He asked her to marry him in the place that started their relationship. I love that I was able to connect their engagement pictures back to their love story.
Congratulations on your engagement, Brett and Paige!
I cannot wait to celebrate with you two in September. After being in your company, I know this is going to be an exciting wedding!
