It was about 5 years later these two got engaged! They had moved to North Carolina a few months back and Pat decided to surprise Erika with a Valentine’s Day photo session with their pup Bentley so they could fill their walls with pictures. Pat had also worked with Erika’s best friends to pick out her engagement ring which was also custom designed. After picking up the ring the morning of the engagement session, it was time for Pat to propose to Erika. They walked around and took cute photos with one of the prompts leading into Pat getting down on one knee. They made their way back home to celebrate the occasion at Erika’s favorite Asian fusion eatery. They were met by both sets of parents as a delightful surprise, with Erika’s mother even making a long journey of 16 hours from Japan to partake in the celebration!
I am so delighted to celebrate with these two next June in the beautiful town of Charleston at Lowndes Grove!! The countdown is on!!
