Botanic Gardens + Sandia Lakes Engagement | Albquerque, NM | Kristi + Sam

They met years ago, and Sam says he noticed Kristi as soon as she walked in the door.  He was bartending, she was out with friends.  By the end of the night they had exchanged contact info, and a few days later - their first date was planned for an evening stroll through the River of Lights.

When filling out their engagement questionnaire, Sam worded it so sweetly.  "By the end of the date, we both knew it was something special", he said.  As we walked around the Botanic Gardens and they beamed as they reminisced about that first date, I commented that their first date sounded legit.  "It was legit!  It's been a legit ever since!" Sam replied with a big smile.  I mean, can ya ask for much more?  Love at first sight, and a whole lot of legit-ness later... they're planning a destination wedding for October.  Surrounded by their closest loved ones, they'll promise to forever in Hawaii, and I couldn't be more excited for them!  

We spent the evening strolling around the Albuquerque Botanic Gardens, and the wild spring wind held out for us so kindly.  They snuggled in close, and giggled sweetly, and I loved every minute!  If it's any prelude to whats to come in Kona this fall, I sure am excited for all that pretty!!!
