I had the absolute best time meeting Taylor and Nick (and their sweet pup Frankie) for their engagement session last week! We explored Hoover Reservoir together on the most perfect fall day. The park was bursting with color and the day was filled with sunshine and cool fall air. Taylor and Nick are the kindest of souls and were such a joy to spend the evening with.
Nick and Taylor met 6 years ago in college at The University of Findlay. They were set up on a blind date by Taylor’s roommate at the time (who will now be one of her bridesmaids). They both never dated in high school and were new to the whole dating world when they met in 2014. After being around each other for a few weeks, they knew that they were both serious about building their relationship and commitment to each other. And the rest is history!
Taylor is originally from Louisville, KY and the Kentucky Derby is always an exciting time of year for her. This year, due to Covid, the Derby, which is always the first Saturday in May, got pushed back to September 5th. Taylor was pretty bummed but then realized it was alright. May ended up being super busy for them since they had just bought a house. As September approached though, they decided they wanted to be in Louisville for Derby even though it was not going to have any spectators.
Little did Taylor know what Nick had planned. On Sept 5th, the day of the 146th running of the Kentucky Derby, they planned to go apple picking with Taylor’s mom. When they got to the orchard they found out the apples didn’t make it…huge bummer! But these two were determined to make the most of the trip. Instead they walked through the sunflower fields and ended up back at the pond they have on the property.
Then Nick got down on one knee and proposed with a beautiful ring. Taylor of course said YES! She couldn’t have been happier and more excited to start the rest of her life with Nick. They were so happy to tell their families. It meant a lot to Taylor that Nick decided to do it on such a special day to her with her family all around. Isn’t that the sweetest proposal story?
