Inspired by one of the most iconic couples, John Lennon and Yoko Ono, this free-spirited Bride and her handsome edgy Groom have stolen my heart with their bohemian-loving ways. Hello, gorgeous blooms, floral crown and peace sign from Posh Floral Designs! And did you see those adorable signs?! It’s all boho perfection in the form of this pretty gallery from Jennefer Wilson.
From Meggie Francisco…When I first met Amber and Clinton, I fell in love with their adoration for each other – and with their style! Amber is such a boho babe with an incredible fashion sense, and Clinton has more edge, more rock n’ roll. He’s actually a traveling Videographer for DJ group Caked Up! Their chemistry immediately reminded me of one of history’s most iconic and romantic couples: John Lennon and Yoko Ono. We took this inspiration and ran with it, pulling out all the stops with modern “protest” signs, a tribal bohemian picnic in the middle of the hills, and a moody creek setting (which inspired some seriously steamy shots!). It was so much fun to watch these two celebrate their engagement and I can’t wait for their wedding in October at the Dallas Arboretum!
From The Bride…Clinton and I first met in elementary school. I thought he was the cutest little baseball player! We “dated” while I was in 4th grade (he was in 3rd). I don’t even know if we had even held hands! We just knew we liked each other and each of us thought the other was cute. I remember he gave me his baseball card with a sweet little note. We stayed friends throughout elementary and middle school, and then parted ways while he went to Sachse high school and I went to Rowlett high school. Our mutual best friend, Katie Wynn, reunited us in spring of 2009. We were both single and things just clicked immediately!
On our 4-year anniversary, Clinton had the whole night planned. We went to dinner at Kobe steak house in Addison and then stopped at the Nylo Hotel downtown to drop off our bags and have a drink on the roof top while watching the sunset. We ended up “running into” our photographer friend Cagle up on the roof top. He said he was supposed to shoot a model, but she had totally bailed! He asked if he could grab a couple of pictures of us just for the fun of it since it was our 4 year anniversary. He started posing us, and while we were laughing and being sexy for the camera, Cagle asked us to do one last pose that he “always does with all of his couples.” He told us to put our backs to each other for a few shots, and then asked us to turn back around. When I turned, there Clinton was, on one knee, asking me to marry him! I was speechless and completely shocked. Of course, I said YES!
