Light & Airy Winter Engagement Session at Stonewall Farm

Merrill and Scott traveled all the way from NJ!  And they did so for their Light & Airy winter engagement session at Stonewall Farm.  Every session with every couple is different.  But I can say that one thing is the same.   Each couple loves each other immensely- that it makes my job pretty easy.   What’s great about engagement sessions?   It’s a great way to really “let your hair down” and have a fun date night.   You get to dress up, (or down depending on your style) and you get to make amazing portraits showcasing your relationship.

These two are pretty fun!  They were very “go with the flow” and went with it.   So now I’m going to turn the story over to them.  You can read the answers more about these two below. (And sprinkled througout the post!)

Our first date was over drinks after work…Scott somehow got the date wrong and thought Merrill stood him up! But luckily she gave him a chance anyway.

Tell us about the Proposal!

Scott proposed at the MET Cloisters, a hidden gem of a museum dedicated to medieval art and architecture – the building itself is constructed from original French monasteries, shipped to America , stone by stone. The Cloister’s contemplative gardens, overlooking the Hudson River, provided a romantic setting for Scott to ‘pop’ the question!

What do you guys do for fun? (Both together and as individuals?)

Scott and Merrill enjoy snowboarding and skiing, and love taking quick weekend trips outside of NYC. Fall activities are also a favorite, along with cooking, baking, and decorating their new apartment!Light & Airy Winter Engagement Session at Stonewall Farm- with Evergreens in the background.

Do either of you have any funny quirks that drives the other one nuts?! (HAHA)

Merrill: I’m definitely more of a planner and very particular about being ‘on time’ for things – Scott is more laid back, so we can sometimes butt heads when I insist on sticking to a detailed timetable!

As a couple who is currently planning their wedding-  what is your biggest piece of advice?

Merrill: Lots of research – I probably contacted over 200 wedding venues, which seems crazy, but it allowed me to feel confident that the venue we ultimately chose was the right one for us.
Scott: Focus on small tasks and try to simplify things where possible.

Anything else that you can share that is interesting, funny, etc?

We both work in NYC and our offices are only a couple of blocks from one another in midtown. We love how easy it is to meet up for coffee during the work day!

How are the wedding plans coming along?  What are your wedding day visions?

Since our venue in southern Maine will be a ‘destination’ for many of our family and friends, we really hope people will embrace the idea of a New England wedding and see it as opportunity to explore the Seacoast! We hope for a breezy, light summer day!
