The definition of a dreamy summer evening date night! No, seriously. I often tell my couples to think of their engagement session as a sort of date night. It’s a one time event that includes quality time together celebrating the excitement of getting married, a chance to dress up and a great reason to go out to dinner after!
(Or in this case, ice cream!) It was the best!
