Carl and Paxton found each other 5 years ago when they were Freshman at Albion college in Michigan. Both come from big families with lots of siblings and lots of cousins.
Growing up, Paxton was always sweet with a side of serious, always ahead in her studies. Family often wondered who could be good enough for her when the time came for her and love.
It wasn't long after college started, the family members found their answer. The first holiday gathering Carl had swept the family away. From grandma to the littlest second cousins, everyone wanted to know more about Carl and could they keep him!
It was only a matter of time; her cousins kept saying that they all knew Carl was a winner and he had Paxton's heart.
Carl was meaningful and romantic when it came to proposing.
For over a month and a half he knew he would ask Paxton to marry him. He joined forces with her friends and co-workers to draw her to a special place they had many memories.
It was a hopeful day in July that Carl lead clueless Paxton to their old college stomping grounds and proposed on their special bridge, where she said "I do."
They decided to venture their way to North Carolina to visit family and take advantage of a mountain top Engagement session.
It is easy to feel on top of the world at the rock face of Stone Mountain. Just a camera and these two can be pretty powerful. It was refreshing to see them together. The mountains in the distance, mirroring the solid foundation these two are building their relationship upon.
Paxton & Carl, I am so happy to be joining you in Michigan for your wedding next summer! It is always my pleasure to capture something so real.
