I just have to preface this blog post by saying that I had such a wonderful time exploring with Laura & Matt for their Chippewa Falls engagement photos. For months we had planned for their engagement photos to be in the golden November light, and as luck had it it wasn’t warm November light but very, very cold! You would never know it – and I’m so very much looking forward to their wedding this coming year where they are using all local vendors to the Chippewa Valley. I can’t wait to share more of that this fall!
But, first I have to tell you about these two & share their engagement images! Though Laura & Matt had gone ring shopping, and Laura had a sneaking suspicion that Matt would be proposing soon what she didn’t know was that the night he ended up proposing that Matt had to keep changing his plan because she was ruining his surprises.
It started out that Matt had planned a date night for the two of them, which got Laura thinking that just maybe this would be the night because Matt doesn’t often plan their date nights. So as it happens they started off to get an oil change on Laura’s car… and she thought it definitely wouldn’t be the night that he proposed if he was taking her to get her oil changed… RIGHT?
After that, they headed to a restaurant that she had been wanting to try, Theresa’s in Minneapolis. It was after dinner that Laura & Matt took one of Laura’s favorite walks where you can see the entire Minneapolis Skyline. It was there that Matt became suspicious that she knew what was in the cards – so he changed his plans and they ended up heading back to her apartment.
At that point Matt still knew that he wanted to propose that night, so he coaxed Laura out of the apartment on the ruse of visiting their favorite brewery, Surly Brewing. They grabbed a table outside & had a drink and it was there just as they were waiting for their Uber near the fountains that Matt found the perfect place to ask Laura!
