When you propose with a plane and a banner in the sky, you better have some pretty fabulous engagement pics as well. And these ones from Erika Brown don't disappoint. With smiles, sips of champagne and a sunset view, these pics are pretty much perfect! From Erika Brown Photography... This engagement was by far one of the sweetest to date! Lianne and Tom could not stop smiling and neither could I! They had the most perfect sunset and setting... and not to mention Lianne's outfits... jaw dropping! I'm so excited to share their beautiful and sweet session with SMP! From the Bride-to-be... How We Met: I was living at the beach one summer, working, while Tom was stationed in DC. We knew of each other through mutual friends, my sister! On his days off, he would come to visit “friends,” I can’t say I minded too much! Proposal: My family tradition started many years ago in the Outer Banks of North Carolina. We hadn’t vacationed there in many years, so when we planned our trip for September 2016 I was not only excited to go back, but more excited to share my favorite family tradition with Tom. My dad had made one request for the whole trip, a family photo on the beach. So here we go, down to the beach to take what I thought was a family picture. The first picture was of my sisters, mom, favorite fur sister, Luna, and myself. As soon as we cooperated for a decent picture, they began to walk away and look back at the ocean. By the time I decided to turn around and check out what all the commotion was, I saw a plane flying over the ocean and a banner floating in the salty air that read “Lianne will you marry me?” Before I had time to process all that was happening, I turned around to find Tom kneeling down with a royal blue box that held a sparkly oval solitaire. Of course I said YES! Wedding Details: Fall 2017 in Lancaster, PA at Excelsior! Our wedding style is simple yet chic and eclectic! We decided on shades of grey with some navy, complemented with neutral tones and lots of greenery! I am most excited for our ceremony on the garden terrace and dancing to our awesome band! Tom is excited to be with his closest friends and family celebrating our big day!
