Today’s Gibson Island engagement session is just too cute! Not only is it a fantastic backdrop for photos, but it is also the spot these two lovebirds will tie the knot in a summer wedding with A. Dominick Events. Will and Caroline met handing out candy on Halloween in 2016, thanks to the wonderful matchmaking skills of Will’s sister and her best friend. The two had been talking about setting them up for years, and finally decided to make it happen. The night went smoothly, and at the end of the evening, Will called an Uber to drop Caroline home. He purposefully took the long way back to DC to have the chance to talk to her a little longer. He snagged her number and asked her to dinner the following week.
Fast-forward to July 2018, Will and Caroline traveled out to San Francisco. They were planning to visit his sister and brother-in-law over July 4 and spend an evening away in Napa Valley. Will planned to propose on their first stop, Stags’ Leap Vineyard. On the drive over, Caroline was not paying attention to the directions and they got lost. Caroline noticed her navigation error seemed to fluster Will more than usual, but did not think anything of it because they made it just in time. After the tour concluded, Will suggested that they walk around the vineyard, and because grapes are Caroline’s favorite food, she excitingly agreed. Right as they reached the outskirts of the vineyard, Will got down on one knee and proposed! To top off day, they went to Thomas Keller’s restaurant, Ad Hoc, and were seated right near Jimmy Kimmel. How fun is that?!
