Pope Farm Conservancy Madison WI Engagement
When we chatted about their engagement session we could have gone to all the iconic Madison locations, but we all thought it would be awesome to go somewhere different. Kimberly and Kyle have never been to Pope Farm Conservancy – and it is so beautiful in the fall. It is especially perfect for a session with a 12-week old puppy! OH, my gosh did this puppy steal my heart! I am going to say it again – if you bring a pup to your session I will be in love, instantly! You’ve been warned 🙂
I am going to let them tell their rad story of how they’ve met:
We met unexpectedly on spring break in Florida in 2010. Neighbors in a condo where our groups of friends hung out together. We text all the way home on our rides back from spring break. We planned that our first visit would be Oktoberfest in La Crosse, Wisconsin which was approximately six months away. Kyle ended up visiting Kim within the month and the seven hour long distance relationship was established.
We alternated between long-distance and living together throughout the next 6 1/2 years going from 7 hours apart to 4 hours to 1 1/2 hours to half an hour than living together and back to 3 1/2 hours long distance, then 4 hours and finally living in the same city in 2015. We moved in together in July 2016 and coincidentally got engaged in September 2017 at Oktoberfest in La Crosse Wisconsin, which was originally going to be our first visit post spring break. The rest is history 🙂
You need to hear when they knew they loved each other – it’s like a movie:
Kyle: I knew from the moment Kim left my arms on spring break that there was something different about her. I knew she was worth the extra effort, and boy am I glad I put the effort in. Although Kim questioned whether or not I meant what I said, I knew I felt something special. Something about the way her smile and laughter fills the room. Her infectious personality made it easy to fall in love.
Kim: I knew I had fallen during a visit to Kyle’s campus, Purdue University. We were out dancing our hearts out at a local piano bar with some of his friends whom I recently met. I remember looking at him in his happy place with his friends and myself… Thinking this was love. I told him I love him that night.
A Spring Break that changed their lives forever! I am serious when I say that they could have someone write a screenplay of their story and make a box hit! Now, who would play them?
