Livingston Mississippi Engagement Session
Christana + Andrew’s Livingston Mississippi engagement session at the Town of Livingston was such a dream to edit!! I just love how my associate Whitney captured the love and joy these two have for one another perfectly!
I first connected with Christana + Andrew after publishing out a blog post of their friends Victoria + Drew’s engagement session! Christana was in love with the images and already wanted to connect even before she and Andrew were officially engaged!
Fast forward to Victoria + Drew’s wedding day where Andrew was a groomsman, and I was so excited to meet this joyful couple! At one point in the day when Christana was not around, Andrew shared his proposal plan with me! It was so fun to hear how he was planning to pop the question MONTHS before the proposal took place!!
Keep reading for more of their story, and to see my favorite images from their Livingston Mississippi Engagement Session!
How they met…
Andrew and I met through mutual friends. Andrew was a part of Mississippi State’s BYX chapter, and I was a coworker with one of his friends, Max. Max invited me to a date party where I was able to meet and develop friendships throughout BYX. Andrew and I did not officially get to know each other until my junior year (his sophomore year) when we were in the same chemistry class together. He was also living with a group of BYX guys that I would always hang out with.
We started hanging out more and wanted to get to know each other more after Thanksgiving. Our friendship grew stronger from Thanksgiving through the end of the school year. After our chemistry final, we celebrated with Cook Out milkshakes and driving around North Farm. That was when we found out how we felt about each other. We continued to get to know each other over Christmas and into the start of the year before he asked me at a basketball game to be his girlfriend.
How he popped the question…
Over Christmas break when we wanted to get to know each other even more, Andrew visited me in Georgia. Because neither of us have really ever toured downtown Atlanta, we decided to make it a day trip. We visited the World of Coke, road the Skyview Atlanta ferris wheel, and walked around Centennial Olympic Park. My mother bought bricks for my family during the 1996 Olympics, and they were hidden somewhere in the park. So, Andrew and I went on a hunt to find the bricks. My mom has never been able to find them, so we told her that we will all visit the bricks some time in the future.
Fast forward three years later, Andrew and I were visiting my mother for Christmas. Us three along with my mom’s friends all went downtown for the day. We showed her the bricks, and Andrew proposed at my family’s bricks in the park. He was worried I would see it on the way there so he also hid the engagement ring box in his sock. It also was the day of the Clemson-Oklahoma game so we had a lot of cheers going on during the moment. We even had a security officer ride around us on a bike helping film the moment.
My prayer for you…
Christana + Andrew, it has been such a joy to get to know you over the past year, and I am so excited for your upcoming wedding!
I am not only praying for every detail of your wedding day to come together perfectly, but I am also praying for your marriage. You both radiate the JOY of the LORD, and I pray that you are always reminded that The Joy Of The Lord Is Your STRENGTH! Hard times will come, but He is faithful to see you through!
