MEET meredith

Love is a beautiful journey that deserves to be celebrated, cherished, and remembered for a lifetime. Lexi and Noah, a couple deeply in love, recently embarked on a memorable engagement session at the enchanting West Virginia Botanic Garden in Morgantown, WV. Amidst the lush greenery, vibrant blooms, and a serene ambiance, their love story unfolded, creating a captivating experience that will forever be etched in their hearts.

How they Met

Lexi and Noah’s love story began with a chance encounter at a beloved fast-food restaurant, Chik-fil-a. Fate brought them together as they stood in line, waiting for their orders. Lexi, captivated by Noah’s infectious smile, struck up a conversation that would change their lives forever. Over shared laughter and friendly banter, their connection deepened, and they discovered a shared love for adventure, family, and, of course, delicious chicken sandwiches. Little did they know that their fateful meeting at Chik-fil-a would lead them to the breathtaking engagement session at the WV Botanic Garden, where their love would bloom like the flowers surrounding them.

How they Got Engaged

Their love story took an exciting turn when Lexi and Noah ventured to Las Vegas for a memorable trip. Noah was attending a conference in the vibrant city, and Lexi planned to join him a few days later for a well-deserved vacation. Little did she know that their time in Las Vegas would become an unforgettable chapter in their journey together.

Noah meticulously planned the perfect proposal, a surprise that Lexi would treasure forever. He informed her that he had won a dinner at the renowned Top of the World Restaurant in the Stratosphere Hotel. With excitement and anticipation, they made their way to the restaurant, unaware of the surprise awaiting them.

As they arrived, a friendly worker greeted them and escorted them to the top of the Stratosphere, where an awe-inspiring view awaited. The vast desert landscape and the glimmering lights of Las Vegas stretched out before them, creating a breathtaking backdrop for Noah’s heartfelt proposal. With a trembling hand and overflowing love in his eyes, Noah got down on one knee, asking Lexi to spend forever with him. Overwhelmed with joy, she said yes, and in that moment, their love soared to new heights amidst the desert skies of Las Vegas.

The engagement in Las Vegas became a pivotal chapter in their love story, where they celebrated their commitment surrounded by the dazzling lights of the city and the vastness of nature’s wonders. Their journey together had taken them from a chance encounter at Chik-fil-a t to the vibrant streets of Las Vegas, solidifying their love with a proposal that would forever remain etched in their hearts.

The WV Botanic Garden Engagement Session

Nestled in the picturesque hills of Morgantown, the WV Botanic Garden provided the perfect backdrop for Lexi and Noah’s engagement session. The garden’s sprawling acres showcased a symphony of colors, with various botanical wonders blooming in harmony.

We met on a beautiful overcast evening and thankfully the rain held off for us! Their genuine affection and radiant smiles created an atmosphere filled with joy, love, and anticipation. The meandering paths and terrace location provided the couple with charming locations to explore, while the garden’s serene aura added a touch of tranquility to their engagement session.

Lexi and Noah’s engagement session was not limited to the garden’s vibrant flora. The WV Botanic Garden now includes a modern venue called The Terrace at Tibbs Run where Lexi and Noah will say their vows in 2024. The terrace venue offered a picturesque landscape and more modern backdrop, allowing the couple to both embrace nature’s beauty fully and present an elegant atmosphere as well.

Lexi and Noah’s engagement session at the WV Botanic Garden was a captivating experience that epitomized the beauty of love and nature coming together. The garden’s vibrant blooms, tranquil landscapes, and serene aura served as the perfect canvas for their love story. As Lexi and Noah embark on their journey towards a lifetime of togetherness, their engagement session will forever remain a cherished memory, immortalized in photographs that capture their love, joy, and the enchanting beauty of the WV Botanic Garden.
