So initially, Andy’s sister was the one that reached out to me about his proposal idea. “This is for my twin brother’s engagement!” And of course my response was a resounding, deeply-moved YAAAASSSS!!! I mean who doesn’t love love??

Andy was so thrilled by his plan, and I was right there with him. 

“This was the easiest decision I’ve ever made in my life.”

I grabbed a car, and drove upstate to meet Andy  in Glen Spey, NY. If you don’t know this spot, definitely check it out! What a gorgeous getaway from any city’s hustle and bustle.

THE PROPOSAL: PART ONE

Andy and Jen would be spending time at Jen’s family’s bungalow on Lake Loch Ada (the gorgeous lake in all these pictures.) I drove up early on their last vacation morning, and Andy snuck me over to the proposal site; a sweet little pocket off the lake.

THE PROPOSAL: PART TWO

Andy went inside to grab Jen, and take her out for a morning boat ride. After a short row, (it was a little bit chilly that morning!) He paused in this little bay, and pulled out her great great Uncle Irving’s handmade ring. (He was a jeweler in the diamond district in Manhattan, so cool!)

Pictured above: Camps on the opposite shore of Lake Loch Ada. Fun fact: Jen’s grandparents actually met at those camps growing up, back when it was called Camp Brookwood. It is now known as Brookwood Camps, and is still fully functional today! Talk about *gorgeous* ~ Check them out!
