When it comes to selecting the perfect location for your Virginia wedding engagement, you might want to go down Ally and Fernando’s choice: where they met! These college sweethearts returned to the George Mason campus after a few gorgeous shots at Burke Lake Park with Stephanie Messick Photography. And get more excited because Ally is here to tell us their cute proposal story, too!

From Ally:  Fast forward three years later in our relationship. It was my first time in Brazil, and I fell in love with Rio de Janeiro as soon as I left the airport. Towards the end of our long trip, we went on an early hike (which is not abnormal for us). When we got to the top of the mountain, you could see all of Rio- it was breathtaking. Next thing I know, I’m being whisked away to a more private area on the mountaintop. And then he popped the question! I was in complete disbelief. After I finally gathered myself enough to say yes, Fernando opened his backpack and pulled out champagne! We soaked in the moment for a good while before hiking back down.
