Romantic Engagement Outfits

Armen Poghosyan Photography @weddingchicks

This beautiful engagement session came together to create a fairy tale shoot. Engagement sessions are the perfect opportunity for you to get to know your photographer, and more importantly, for your photographer to get to know you and your fiancé before the big day!

This gorgeous session included a stunning gown from BHLDN and a fun and flirty dress from Free People for an all around lovely day. See more images of these romantic engagement outfits in the full gallery here, captured by Armen Poghosyan.

get to know your photographer

Our engagement session was so fun and turned out exactly how we envisioned it! Armen Poghosyan did an amazing job capturing every detail and especially our love for one another. I was very particular when looking for a photographer that captured the soft, romantic feeling that I desired. He was able to give us a few examples of pictures and locations and we knew we found our right match. I’ve known my fiancé since I was 5 years old. We grew from little kids, to best friends, to soul mates. Cant wait to marry the one my heart belongs to!

Self Professed “Simple Girl”

From Moana Events: Meaghan, the bride, also happens to be our Director of Events for Moana Events. As much fun as she has planning the gorgeous and often elaborate weddings of our beautiful clients, she is very much a self-professed “simple girl”. All her and Zan wanted for their special day was to be surrounded by the people they love most, with a few of their favorite things sprinkled in!

A Special Venue

Zan’s family history in Hawaii goes back 5 generations, when his ancestors travelled to the islands as missionaries in the 19th century. They lived in the houses which have now been converted into a historical landmark and museum. It was the perfect venue for their dream “backyard” wedding.

Coffee + Brunch

They decided on a brunch wedding, not only because it was budget friendly, it also just fit their “style”. Guests sipped mimosas while playing lawn games. There was a coffee bar with all of the necessary “trimmings” (the couple are HUGE coffee lovers).

The menu consisted of a variety of their favorite breakfast treats including mini pancakes and sugar glazed bacon. And they thanked their guests with a doughnut bar.
