Caren and Aaron are one HIGH ENERGY couple!!!! Caren’s energy was immediately apparent, as she bounded down the sidewalk towards us with a vivacious smile, waving energetically. Aaron’s energy is definitely a little more reserved, but within a few moments of chatting with him, you realize he would stop at nothing for the benefit of his students, friends, and especially, Caren. Perfect example – the super sneaky proposal that he planned!
Aaron looped a friend into the plan, who told Caren she was coming to town and let Caren make all the plans. Meanwhile, with Caren occupied, Aaron was making his own plans. He rented a gorgeous suite at the Mayflower Hotel, decorated the entire thing with rose petals, and EVEN – this is the impressive part – planned an engagement party for all their friends!!! The night of the proposal, Caren and Aaron’s friend called with a last minute minor emergency. Of course, this took the trajectory of the evening off of Caren’s plans and onto Aaron’s. Not only did Aaron pull off an incredibly romantic proposal, but he also surprised Caren with friends near and far. The celebrated far into the night…. definitely a foreshadowing of their wedding, I’m sure. It’s going to be so fun to be surrounded by all that energy!!!
Apart from their high energy, the other thing that is so clear about Caren and Aaron, from this story and also from what they’ve shared with us, is that they deeply value their friends and family. Nothing is more important to them than other people, and nothing is more important in their wedding planning than creating a great experience for their guests to connect with one another. We just can’t wait to be there!!!!! It’s going to be amazing!
When we stopped by Caren and Aaron’s apartment, we both commented on how much we like Aaron’s jacket. Caren decided to grab her favorite leather jacket, and I love that she did – it just gave her such a confidence and edge. We thought these photos were so full of their personality!
Congratulations, Caren and Aaron!!!
