Winter Engagement Photos in Sedona: Rhea & Andrew

Rhea and Andrew are getting married in February at Desert Botanical Gardens and The Showcase Room.  This wedding is near and dear to our hearts as Rhea and Andrew are very close friends of ours and we couldn't be more excited for their upcoming nuptials.  

They got engaged last December in Hawaii and upon returning to Arizona, they headed up to Sedona for their engagement session with aMaes Photography.  Check out some of their gorgeous photos...also, the bride was kind enough to share their whole engagement story with us, below...

"In only 2 short years of dating, Andrew and I decided to take a week-long trip to Hawaii in December 2014.  I went on the trip having absolutely no expectations, other than just exploring the island with my best friend and no lingering thoughts of a possible engagement ever crossed my mind heading into the trip.  After arriving on the Island of Kauai, we spent our first day on the island just wandering the local beaches, eating a sinfully delicious brunch at the St. Regis, and taking dozens of pictures on the new camera he had bought me as an early Christmas present.  As the day came close to an end, we decided to go back to the room, change into our swimsuits and hit the hotel pool.  I found Andrew flipping through the pictures from the day, and happily joined him in reflecting over the beautiful picturesque beaches.  As he scrolled to the last photo, a picture of a diamond ring came across the screen.  I looked at the camera and then at him in disbelief.  “What is that?  Is that real?” is what I think I said, though I may have had a minor heart attack as I became swept up in emotion and can’t remember his or my exact words.  As he placed the camera down, he pulled a ring box out of the night stand, got down on one knee and asked me to marry him.  I don’t think a millisecond passed before I shouted out “YES!” Words will never be able to describe the feeling of pure joy, knowing that I was going to spend my life with not only the love of my life, but my best friend and we spent the rest of our week vacation celebrating life and love."

We can't WAIT for you both!!!
