{Engaged!} Peter & Arwen | Elon Wedding Photographers

They have history. Three years worth of it. They met shredding fabric for the theatre department. They don't know why they shredded this fabric or what it was used for. But it didn't matter. It brought them together. 

He rescued her from a terrible ballroom dancer. A ballroom dancer who dared to yell at HER when HE stepped on her toes. But then Peter showed up. And gave her someone new to dance with.

He proposed. Over appetizers. I wish I'd heard the whole proposal tale but just knowing that was enough. It's a love story. And it's sort of, well, epic.

Thank you so much, Peter & Arwen, for giving us the opportunity to photograph your engagement! You guys were a lot of fun and fanTASTic models! And Arwen, trust me when we say, the Evenstar necklace? Not cheesetastic at all. :-)

We took photos on the gorgeous Elon University campus. They were/are both students there so it worked out perfectly!

I love the photo on the left - Beautiful book of Shakespeare poems, and the box that held his mother's engagement ring...which Arwen now wears. *sigh* loooove the romanticism of it all.

My favorite part - the Evenstar necklace! Arwen was actually named after the Elven princess in Lord of the Rings, so while she thought it might be a little too cheesy, we told her it wasn't at all and was sure to incorporate it! It's beautiful isn't it?
