Today’s fabulous featured engagement comes from Arden Prucha Photography a Dallas/Fort Worth, Texas based wedding photographer. Does her name sound familiar? It should!

Arden has been so sweet and accommodating to GSS and we have truly enjoyed working with her on this feature. FYI- This is one of the sweetest proposals ever!
Shasta and Lance are to be married on February 5, 2011. Shasta was kind enough to answer a few questions for us:
How did you and Lance meet? We met through mutual friends. I was finishing school and waiting tables and he came in with some friends. I blew him off on our first date haha. Then we finally went out and I was in love.
How long did you date before the proposal OR How long have you been together? We will be together two years in April. He proposed on March 20th, 2010.
Have you set a date yet? We are getting married February 5th,2011 in Playa del Carmen, Mexico!
Have you picked your venue? If so, what made you choose this location? We chose a destination wedding because we wanted a smaller intimate setting of close friends and family. Also we had our first vacation in Playa and it was unforgettable.
At what point did you know that Lance was “the one”? After about two weeks of dating we were completely inseparable. He truly is my best friend.
Besides getting engaged, what is your favorite memory as a couple? We took a trip to Mexico with another couple and had so much fun together just relaxing and laughing the entire time.
How did Lance propose? He got his mom and sister to come kidnap me for a day of shopping. I arrived home that night to a long stem rose on the door with a note. I opened the front door and there were over 200 candles and flowers everywhere. Took my breath away. There was a trail of Hershey kisses throughout the house with long stem roses and letters about why he loved me so much that he had hand written. I walked into the bedroom and he was on one knee. I started bawling. I couldn’t tell you what he said I just remember holding his face in my hands because his sweet voice was shaking
Were you surprised? Very much so!
What made you choose Arden as your photographer? We have a ton of mutual friends on facebook and I added her. I began to look at her blog constantly even before we were engaged. Her work is absolutely breathtaking. I was amazed by her use of color and her way of bringing out the inner beauty in people. Her family is so picture perfect. Love you Arden!

We hope your wedding is everything that you have ever dreamed of and wish you and Lance a lifetime full of love, laughter, and happiness!!! May every day be better than the last!
