Megan and Chad were first introduced when Chad’s brother and sister-in-law set them up on a blind date!
So they officially met at the Lucky Dill…which actually turned out to be pretty lucky!! They dated for a year and a half! Chad made it a point to ask Megan’s father if he could marry his daughter because having his blessing is very important to him!
Jon and I thought that was so cool because so often, you don’t hear of that happening! Jon asked my dad for his blessing as well so that’s always been very important to me as well!! So many props to you and your chivalrousness, Chad!!
During a family session they had this past October (at Philippe Park), Chad got down on one knee and asked Megan to spend forever with him while it all was captured in photos!! Smart man!! So, since that’s where they got engaged, Philippe Park holds a special place in their heart, so we went right back to where it happened, under the gorgeous (and very large) tree by shelter 7! When you scroll through the photos, I’ll point it out!
It was beautiful weather for a February session, not too hot and tons of golden sunlight!! We started at Philippe Park, almost got attacked by the little neon green worms that hang from the tree’s this time of year(also pictured below!) and finished in Downtown Safety Harbor! By the end of their engagement session, Megan and Chad were being treated like celebrities! People even wanted their picture taken with them! (I made sure to add one in the post!!) Jon, myself and the boys had a blast with these two! There are so many favorites to share and we are counting down the days until their July wedding!
Okay…the tree below, to the right of the tree trunk under the arching branch, that’s where Chad proposed!!
And these little guys almost ended up in my hair..thankfully Jon saw several of them and pointed them out!
These ladies wanted their picture with the happy couple!!! haha It was so great and one of the couples in their group has been married for FIFTY years!! That’s a huge accomplishment!
You’re gorgeous Megan!!!
