Sometimes you meet someone, and you know they are ‘the one.’ This was the case for Donnie and Jamie. They had their first date in Boston on June 27, 2012 and they have been together ever since. In August the following year, Donnie and Jamie were planning a trip to San Francisco and Napa, CA. Donnie had no idea that Jamie had bought a ring and was planning to propose.
Jamie had planned for a limo to take them early in the morning to Napa for a hot air balloon ride at sunrise, then breakfast at Auberge Du Soleil. Unfortunately, the winds did not cooperate and they were not able to go on the hot air balloon. Some quick reshuffling of plans with the limo driver, and they were off to watch the sunrise over the vineyards of Napa, and on to breakfast. At breakfast Jamie asked the Host if he could have mimosas brought to their table in the champagne glasses he had made for the occasion. One said “Marry” and the other said “Me”. Minutes later, they were engaged!
Donnie and Jamie had discussed many different options for their special day. Both love to travel and thought a destination wedding would be ideal. The only complication was that their ceremony would not be recognized in many places. As both are from Massachusetts, recently celebrating 10 years of legalized same sex marriage, they chose a place they both loved but was also a destination…Provincetown!
Here is what Desjar Photography had to say about their session:
“Since I was driving to the Cape from Richmond VA, Donne and Jamie decided to do some fun engagement portraits the day before their Wedding in Provincetown, MA. It was a gorgeous day and we started at the Provincetown Inn, where their ceremony and venue were going to be, before venturing out to the beaches, with their pup Tucker in tow. The sun was setting, ocean in the backdrop, sand on their feet, laughter in the air, and you can clearly see through these images how much they adore one another and how excited they were to be married the next day!”
