It was cold. Very, very cold. Yet, Ben and Debbie hardly seemed to notice. They probably did notice the icy wind carving a frigid edge through the air, but they were more focused on each other. Back at the very spot where Ben had gotten down on one knee and asked Debbie to be his wife, perhaps it was the memory of the last time they were there, with much warmer autumn air and the excitement of the proposal that was keeping them warm. Or perhaps just the opportunity for a few stolen moments of holding each other close.
The Botanical Gardens in St. Louis, MO provide a most beautiful backdrop to pictures anytime of year. Still . . . afterward we warmed up at one of our favorite coffee shops! It was so nice just relaxing, enjoying something warm and getting to know Ben + Debbie as a couple.
Congratulations on your engagement! We can’t wait for your March wedding!
Debbie’s engagement ring is beautiful, isn’t it?! Good job Ben!
