Miami University Cincinnati Engagement Session | Natalie and Kyle

August 29, 2016  •  2 Comments

What do a couple of Miami University alums/sweethearts/ice hockey enthusiasts do for an engagement session?  Hit the ice, of course! (Duh.)  ;)

I have to be honest here in saying this was my first ever engagement session involving an ice rink. (Eeek!) I wasn't sure what to expect! But Natalie and Kyle were such pros that it was a piece of cake!  Bonus: being inside on a hot, summer day. 

And Miami University has such a beautiful campus, there are great backdrops around every corner.  Definitely a win-win. 

Here's a little more about Natalie and Kyle's love story! 

  • We first met through our mutual friends who were dating at the time. It was two months before graduating Miami University when our friends set us up on a double date.
  • Kyle proposed to me on a Friday night after work. We had a plan to play my favorite Settlers of Catan expansion (board game) once I got home. Kyle led me to the living room where he had the game all set up. He then started his proposal.
  • We are board game geeks. It started out as an activity to do together over Skype while I was in grad school in Illinois. Once I moved in with Kyle in Ann Arbor, we collected all the expansions for Settlers of Catan. We eventually got bored of playing the same game; therefore, we decided to venture out and pick a new game out once a month as a date night activity. Fast forward to today, we not have an entire bookcase dedicated to our board game collection.
  • Our favorite restaurants in Ann Arbor for date nights are The Black Pearl and Mezzavio.
  • The vision for the wedding is elegant, romantic, with a natural touch. I like to think of it as a fancy garden party from Downton Abbey. The environment is a natural feel with ivory linen, greenery, and wood furniture. The bridesmaids will be dressed in mint and the flowers will be peach/orange.
