They were both abroad in Europe at the same time several years ago. Their paths might have crossed, but they had never even met.

This is Sam and Cassie.

I know Cassie from our college days. We both studied psychology at Missouri S&T. Sam was also there, studying history. It wasn't until after Sam and Cassie returned from their separate trips to Europe that they met for the first time at college. It's funny how sometimes the world can seem so small.

Sam and Cassie share a love for travel and adventure. In late 2016, they ventured to Ireland together to explore and see the sights, but Sam had additional plans. One morning, they were hiking one of the mountains in Ireland to see the sunrise. Sam was planning to propose to Cassie at the top, while they took in the breathtaking sights. "I soon realized that I forgot the ring in the hotel room." Sam explained. Cassie added, "It would have been perfect too! The view was amazing!" Once they had came back down the mountain and made it back to the hotel, Sam handed her the ring, a beautiful custom set sapphire engagement ring.

I loved getting to see Sam and Cassie together during their engagement session. I haven't seen Cassie since college five years ago, so it was a blessing to be able to catch up! As you can see, Sam and Cassie are just the most perfect, giggly, happily engaged couple ever! Their August wedding will be here soon!

Enjoy, Sam and Cassie!
