I am so excited to introduce Audra and Reade on my blog!! We spent a sunny (and chilly) Sunday afternoon in Downtown Asheville, NC for their Engagement Session! As we walked around, I learned that Reade is a board member for Asheville Downtown Association. ADA has their helpful hands in everything from events to advocacy for the city, residents, businesses, and visitors. He knew everything there was to know about this amazing city!
It is crazy how technology can make the first connection of two hearts! After learning about each other first through Bumble, then communicating, Reade made a spur of the moment decision to drive from North Carolina to Tennessee to meet Audra. After their first date, they knew they had a connection and were going to be together!
Early in their relationship Audra joked that she would like to be traveling abroad when Reade proposes. Of course, she doesn’t remember this, but Reade reminded her after he popped the question in Paris on the Eiffel tower! He asked Audra’s Dad for Audra’s hand in marriage months earlier, but was waiting for the right moment and the right place! For their trip, they traveled all over from Switzerland, Germany, to France. Reade hadn’t told anyone he had the ring so everyone was so surprised and so excited when he got down on one knee!!
They’ll be celebrating with friends and family from all over at Point Lookout Vineyards next June!! I’m already excited about being surrounded by those beautiful mountain views!!
