Erin Wilson Photography & Cinematography

Northwest Arkansas couple Ryan Lewis and Hannah Hirschfeld are tying the knot! The lovebirds found each other through a dating app and immediately hit it off. After two years of dating, Ryan and Hannah took a trip to Kiawah Island in South Carolina to spend the Fourth of July with Hannah's family. 

After dinner, the whole family went out to walk on the beach at twilight. Ryan dropped down on one knee and asked Hannah to spend the rest of her life with him. Her immediate response, "Oh my word, you're actually doing it!" Quickly followed by, "Yes, yes, yes!” The two will return to Kiawah Island to say their I Dos on April 14, 2019.

In the meantime, we're obsessing over their sweet engagement sesh by Erin Wilson Photography at Philbrook Museum of Art in Tulsa, Oklahoma.

Ellie + Devin's Gorgeous Fayetteville Engagement Sesh

Raegan Buckley Photography

Ellie Childress and Devin Dupree met at a small group leader retreat for Cross Church Fayetteville in the fall of Ellie's junior year of college. Ellie lost her keys at the retreat and Devin stayed behind to help her find them. When she finally left after finding the keys in her bag, she remembers driving home and thinking about what an incredible guy Devin is. 

"Devin has been my best friend ever since," she says. "He's intentional, kind, intelligent, and somehow still offers to help me look for things I've lost with a smile on his face. I think it's pretty safe to say I'd be lost without him."

Here's their proposal story in Ellie's words:

"The morning Devin proposed, he took me out to Lake Fayetteville. We'd had our first date in this same spot over a year ago, eating food truck fried rice and watching the sunset out by the lake. Devin had strung lights over the bridge to our spot and hung pictures of us through the trees. We walked over to a table he had made for us and engraved in the side was "Dev + El, 11/11/18, " the date he proposed. He prayed over us and our marriage, then got down on one knee and asked me to be his wife. The rest of that day was filled with surprise brunches and parties he had planned for our friends and family. November 11 currently holds the record for being the happiest day of my life until July 6, 2019!"

The two will tie the knot on Saturday, July 6, 2019, at The Grandeur House. We can't wait to see their big day!

Elizabeth + Brandon's Wintery Surprise Engagement

Miles Witt Boyer

Springdale natives Elizabeth Williams and Brandon Buccheri are tying the knot! We just loved their sweet surprise engagement and Elizabeth's reaction. Miles Witt Boyer was on the scene to capture each love-filled moment. 

Here's their love story in Elizabeth's words:

"Brandon and I have been together for five years, since I was 15 and he was 17. Miles Witt Boyer texted Brandon and I on that morning in a group message asking us if we could model for him for a Holdfast photoshoot. We showed up to the shoot, modeled the camera straps, then Miles asked us if we wanted a few couples photos. We started cuddling up for the first photo and being my awkward self I said, 'I don't know what to do!' Brandon said, ' I have an idea...' and then he asked me. It was so special and I can't wait to spend the rest of my life with my best friend!"

Hannah + Hunter's Sweet Proposal Overlooking Downtown Fort Smith

Erika Ryan Photography

Hannah Meadows and Hunter Cabe are tying the knot!

The two met when Hannah's best friend invited her over to Hunter's apartment for a party. When she walked into the party, the only seat open was Hunter's leather chaise lounge. She was too nervous to move the decorative pillows, throw and books, so she sat on the very edge of it. A couple of months later, Hunter and Hannah started dated and he told her that he fell for her the moment he saw her sitting on that chaise lounge.

Here's their engagement story in Hannah's words:

"After a little over a year of dating, Hunter had hired a photographer to take pictures of us on my birthday. The last location was on the roof of a building downtown. Once we made it up all of the stairs, the door to the roof wouldn't open. A few phone calls later and we made it onto the roof! Up there, we were able to see all of downtown Fort Smith from a new perspective. A few moments later, Hunter told me he couldn't wait to spend the rest of his life with me 'starting now.' After I said 'yes!' we went back to his apartment and took a couple more photos on his chaise lounge — where it all began."

We can't wait to see their wedding at The Clayton House on Saturday, October 5, 2019.

Congrats, you two!
