It was a rainy day and we were lucky and grateful that we had picked a greenhouse for Stephanie and Victor's engagement session. One of the Rawlings Conservatory's building was built in 1888 and it's so crazy beautiful. It has 5 different 'environments' for all sort of different plants. Tropical, desert, mediterranean, you name it. It was an incredible experience to explore all the rooms with this awesome couple. When we stepped outside, the rain had slowed down and we were feeling adventurous, so we went and explored some more. The rain mixed with fog gave that mystic feel to their engagement that I love so much.
Stephanie lives in Maryland and Victor in Texas. It has been challenging to plan a wedding being that far apart but they are nailing it and cannot wait to get married in October at Ceresville Mansion.
