Fall Sunset Engagement | Ceci and Tommy


It was such a perfect evening when I met up with Ceci and Tommy for their fall sunset engagement session last November. And these two could not be more adorable together, or more in love! Plus, their love story is one of my favorites EVER! The’ve known each other since high school, and Tommy had a crush on her forever before he finally decided it was time to act on it after college. Ceci was a kindergarten teacher and Tommy brought her an apple during Teacher Appreciation Week to ask her on a date. As Tommy says “I am standing in the room I went to kindergarten in, about to tell the girl of my dreams that I want to take her out and she has no idea!” And if you didn’t catch that, yes, Ceci taught kindergarten in the SAME classroom that Tommy used to attend! CRAZY! So Ceci walks into the room, and Tommy says “Cec, Happy National Teacher Appreciation Week. I’ve had a crush on you my entire life. If you aren’t seeing anyone, I’d love to take you on a date.”

She obviously said yes! And here we are a little over 3 years later, and they will be getting married TOMORROW! I absolutely cannot wait to celebrate with them at Huntington Bank Stadium! See you guys soon, Ceci and Tommy!! XOXO
