From their adorable wellies to the tandem bicycle, this couple is cute as apple pie. I opened up the engagement session, sent our way by A Simple Photograph, and with the first glance of the two of them in a field, I knew there was nothing simple about it. Two people whose lives have continuously crossed paths, from the time they were young, finally engaged. And planning a fabulous wedding in Tuscany. Can it get any better than that? Here’s to hoping they include us in their intimate Italian affair next summer! Click here to see more.

Tim and I grew up together in a small town. We spent every Sunday together in Church and passed each other in the halls of the local high school. We each knew that the other existed but we didn’t really know each other until much later, when our friends became friends. As our friendship became stronger over the years, we both thought to ourselves, there may be something more here. We decided to go on a few dates, to see where things might go. That was four years ago and after years of long distance, multiple job changes, and moves, we are now, finally, living together back in the same small town of our youths. One late night close to Christmas, while working together restoring our old Victorian home, we became engaged. We are now excited to be married and to start the rest of our lives together.

We are planning a small intimate wedding in Tuscany, Italy. I fell in love with Italy slowly over the years, during a few trips I took there with my family. That love was cemented when I spent a summer semester during law school living in Florence. Tim and I took a trip there together two summers ago and Tim became equally smitten. When deciding where to marry, we knew we wanted to spend the day with our close friends and family members in a place that we both love. San Gimignano is a magical walled city in the heart of Tuscany. We will be married there, in the Palazzo del Popolo (the People’s Palace) in June of 2012.
