Libby & Kurt’s DC Ranch wedding photos are a something out of a dream! I had been anticipating this wedding for months… Libby designed all the paper goods and signage and posted little sneak peeks throughout the year and I just knew this wedding would be off the hook. Their colorful floral elements and gold accents tied into every aspect of the day–from the invitation suite, to the signage, to the linens and cake. But the real stars of the day were Libby & Kurt and their incredibly sweet love for each other, and the genuine support from their family & friends. It was truly an honor to be a part of their day and one that I won’t soon forget.
These two high school sweethearts are from Nebraska and now live out near the Big Apple. They had a gorgeous destination wedding in Scottsdale with all their closest family & friends. I asked Libby to tell me about how Kurt proposed:
It was December 11th, 2015. We were heading off to get in the Christmas spirit by going to see the Rockettes in Rockefeller Center with my parents, who had flown in for the weekend. The show ended at about 11 p.m. and as we were walking out, we started walking over to see the Christmas tree in the center of Rockefeller. Kurt and I started making our way towards the center of the tree to get the perfect picture. As we found the perfect spot among the masses of the people, an area where we were standing had cleared out. My parents started snapping picture after picture.
When we had finally taken what felt like our 50th picture, Kurt took my hand and said, “How about we take a picture like this?” and then got down on one knee! I instantly started screaming, jumping up and down, and crying as he said, “Will you be my better half?” In the midst of my uncontrollable emotions I screamed “YES!!!” Kurt then stands up, throws his hand in the air and screams “SHE SAID YES!!!” …our nearest and dearest 5,000 friends started clapping and screaming… what a magical moment!
So happy for you two!! Congrats and best wishes!!
