Engagement Wednesday: Helen and Kevin
We are in love with today’s couple, they are so cute! Helen and Kevin met 3 years ago when starting their jobs at USIS, they have been together every since.
The couple traveled to PR and had Gabriel Gonzalez Photography capture their love with some amazing shots in Old San Juan.
The Engagement….Knowing that he wanted to marry Helen was the easy part. Being patient until finding the perfect location was the hard part. A vacation to Germany booked for September 2012 would provide the necessary stage. Kevin carried with him the ring in his camera bag as he and Helen began their road trip in the northwest metropolis of Cologne. From there, the two made their way south on the second day into German wine country. Following a great day of sightseeing, the two arrived at their accommodations for the night, the Hotel Auf Schoenburg, a converted castle overlooking the vineyard town of Oberwesel on the Rhine river. It was roughly 6:30 when both were done getting ready for the evening. With a dinner reservation at 7 and the sun falling quickly in the sky, Kevin rushed Helen to a castle garden for pictures. Kevin set up his tripod and set the camera to automatically fire a shot every two seconds. He told Helen to get a few pictures looking out over the vista onto the town of Oberwesel below. Kevin took the ring out of his bag and walked over to join Helen with the ring now behind his back. Helen claims to have felt his heart pounding before the moment, but needless to say, Kevin knelt and got the answer he was hoping for! An excellent dinner followed in the castle keep, with glasses of sparkling wine from the neighboring hillsides.
