Engagement shoot in European inspired gardens

MelanieGabrielle_PaigeEngagement_1

I admit when I first saw this venue – VIZCAYA MUSEUM & GARDENS – I thought I was looking at a shoot from somewhere in Europe, certainly not in the U.S., however this beautiful Spanish inspired venue is right in Miami and offers the most elaborate European style gardens you can imagine. MELANIE GABRIELLE captured this stunning and lush engagement of Devin & Justin. And now I’m off to go and buy a tulle skirt like this!! (gorgeous right?)

From Devin the bride-to-be: “My fiancé, Justin, and I met in New York when he was visiting a mutual friend. We embarked on a long distance relationship for just three months until I relocated and joined him in Miami.

Like most couples in a long distance relationship, when we had the opportunity to spend time with one another, we wanted to really make it count. One of the first special places for us was Vizcaya, a historic museum and garden in Coral Gables, so when Justin planned a Sunday afternoon there for us this past spring, I was certainly on high alert!

It was a beautiful day in late March, and as we explored the grounds, I noticed that Justin had become uncharacteristically quiet. I suggested we move out to the gardens, and as soon as we stepped outside, Justin exclaimed, “There are so many people out here!” Now I thought that surely he was working towards a proposal… and I started getting so nervous! I just kept thinking, “It’s happening! It’s happening! Don’t fall down these stairs… It’s happening!” We reached a secluded fountain, and as we circled it hand in hand, we gushed to one another how happy we made each other and how much we were looking forward to all of our future adventures as a couple when Justin paused and got down on one knee to pop the big question with a Paige family heirloom.

We were so over the moon that we completely overlooked snapping a few pictures to capture the occasion. When our photographer, Melanie, asked us our thoughts on engagement photos, we knew immediately that Vizcaya was the perfect setting for our story!
