We just can’t resist a couple that throws the Wedding Rule Book out the window and does something truly unique. We love when couples take advantage of their engagement shoots and have them represent the essence of them as a couple. Celia and Aaron bonded over stiff cocktails and breakfast food when they met their senior year in college. Can we be best friends? They continued to date for the next four years, even when Aaron’s job took him to North Carolina for a one-year-stint.
Celia describes herself as an old soul who has found her counterpart in Aaron. She sometimes likes to think that in past lives they still fell in love with each other. Her obsession with vintage things (again, can we be roommates?) somewhat rubbed off on Aaron throughout their courtship. They began to enjoy period shows together while museums and historic bars were frequent dates. No surprise that when Aaron did pop the question, he did it with an authentically vintage ring circa 1930’s-1940’s (swoon) from Victoriana Antique & Fine Jewelry.
And as for their engagement shoot? Well, it’s from a different time…literally. Celia donned a 1960’s inspired high-neck circle dress from ASOS with shoes from ALDO. Aaron looked dapper with a sharp navy suit. They took these gorgeous photos at the hand of the incredible Hardy Klahold Photography at the gorgeous Cooper Lounge in Denver Union Station and the lobby of the historic Oxford Hotel. Celia used the insanely talented, Lauren Rennells, for her authentically vintage hair and makeup. Honestly, martinis, big hair, classy suits, and beautifully preserved historic venues? What else do you need in life, let alone a fabulous engagement shoot.
