Monica & Chris’s Engagement Session Lancaster County Parks Lancaster PA
THE ENGAGEMENT SESSION
It was a really brisk day, but the sun was shinning and Lancaster County Parks has so many beautiful picturesque spots. Plus, the love between Monica and Chris warmed the day right up! We had so much fun talking and laughing throughout the entire engagement session. Their wedding will take place on November 11, 2022 at Running Deer Golf Club in Pittsgrove, NJ and Shay Scala Photography is so thrilled to be a small part of their love story!
HOW THEY MET?
Monica first noticed Chris at work, he’s a guard at the nuclear plant where she works. He was always so friendly to everyone and stood out to Monica because of his inviting smile. After many years of saying hi in passing Chris sent Monica a friend request on Facebook. She recognized him as soon as she saw the request and accepted. About a month and a half later Chris private messaged her and said “I didn’t know you were a cancer survivor, I am also a cancer survivor”, so they shared their experiences. He was so easy to talk to that she never wanted to stop. After that first message they texted all day everyday. Chris played it cool and waited almost a month before asking her out (and only because Monica used her mom knowledge to help him find a Tee shirt for his son). The date was perfect in every way and they didn’t want it to end.
HOW THEY FELL IN LOVE?
Monica knew pretty early on that she was in love with Chris because he is the most caring and thoughtful person she’s ever met. She loves that they are a team and they work together to make life easier on each other. That’s huge because they’re both single parents, who work crazy hours.
HOW DID HE PROPOSE?
Chris took Monica out to an amazing dinner and when they got back home he stopped Monica on the porch where they had their first kiss. Chris told Monica that he loved her and asked her if she remembered that was at that very spot they shared their first kiss (She definitely did!!!)? He then got down on one knee and asked her to be his wife!! It was so sweet and romantic, and then he took her to get ice cream.
WHAT ARE YOU MOST EXCITED ABOUT WITH PLANNING YOUR WEDDING?
“It’s all super exciting to be planning our wedding together. I love that we’re both equally invested in making it a beautiful and unique event that will be very much us. Even down to finding vintage glasses for the reception at various thrift stores and antique shops, because we both love and appreciate the history of them.”
