“I love you very much, probably more than anybody could love another person.” —H
In December of 2016, Darnelle and Trevin traveled to Manchester, UK to celebrate a big work accomplishment for Trevin. Their next stop was London, which happened to be the most magical time of the year to visit; with lots of festivals and Christmas celebrations! They were both extremely excited since it was their first time in Europe. There was so much to see and do. One of the many places they visited was The Shard, one of the tallest buildings in Europe. Just moments prior to making it to the 72nd floor, Trevin had a tough time making it through the metal detectors. He looked stressed. Darnelle was confused and had no idea was about to happen. Two sets of elevators and a few flights of stairs later, the panoramic view of the city was breath-taking. The 360-view covered all sights they visited earlier that day (London Eye, St. Paul’s Cathedral, the Tower of London, Houses of Parliament, Buckingham Palace and more). It was an open–aired observation deck with hedge walls with blooms in the center and turf floors. It was perfect.
Trevin wanted to give a toast but she immediately started talking as usual. Darnelle congratulated him on winning the Top Award with his global firm! She continued and began to share how proud she was and just how much she loves him. Trevin smiled and gave her a hug. He thanked her for being so supportive and expressed how much he also loved her. With a serious face he paused, he asked “Do you really love me? Can you see yourself with me forever?” Darnelle was confused again, but of course her answer was yes! Suddenly, she noticed a crowd began and Trevin holding something, but before she could ask what was going on. Trevin got down on one knee, and said “I cannot go another day without asking you to be my wife, Darnelle will you marry me?”
Darnelle was shocked; she could not believe this was really happening… she screamed “Holy Crap” followed by “Jesus” all in the same breath. Her emotions took over and she was overwhelmed with joy. Trevin may have been on one knee for at least two minutes before Darnelle could recover her thoughts and answer his burning question. “Yes, I will marry you Trevin Melton”.
And the crowd cheered, it was clear to her that all of his anxiousness and this perfect day was the set up for her picture-perfect proposal.

Being in the wedding industry, it was extremely hard to decide on a wedding photographer. We looked at every aspect of the art, creativity and service to help make our decision. We decided on AJ Shorter! Our experience thus far has been nothing short of what I expected. He is professional, creative, and personable! He is a great photographer!
We decided on The Ritz-Carlton Bal Harbour and Fairchild Botanical Garden as our locations for the engagement shoot. They allowed us to set the tone for formal outdoor wedding in June of 2018.
