Beth Beattie and Lawson Aschenbach’s engagement session was the epitome of Florida: effortlessly romantic.
The photos are also a reflection of the couple’s wedding theme, romantic glam on the Gulf. “I envision a day filled with love and laughter with our friends and family to celebrate Lawson and I,” says Beth. “Rosemary Beach is such a sweet town, and we look forward to dancing the night away. Our reception will be tented on the lawn beside the white sandy beaches of the Gulf at sunset.”
Beth’s Story: A family friend set me up on a blind date with Lawson, and there was immediate chemistry. We talked and talked and had a great lunch before he headed out of town. I thought he was so cute and sweet, and we had a lot in common. He called me as soon as he got back, and we have been inseparable since.
When I was little and dreamt of who my husband would be, I couldn’t have wished for a more perfect match. Lawson is my rock. We enjoy life’s happy moments together and are there for each other through the challenging times. Last October at one of my favorite places, Soho Beach House in Miami, with both of our families there, he asked me to marry him. It’s true–he could hardly get the question out before I blurted “Yes!” It was amazing to share that special moment with our families. I’m so excited to soon be his wife and continue our lives together.
Lawson’s story: I still feel like it was just yesterday when Beth and I sat down for a blind lunch date. I knew right away she was someone special and someone I wanted to get to know more. Almost 5 years later I was able to ask my best friend if she would marry me. To be honest, she said yes before I could even get the words out of my mouth! We’ve been through some ups and downs, some highs and lows, but one thing never changed: our love for each other. I’m looking forward to our life as a married couple, and there is no other person I could imagine spending the rest of my life with.
