Kim + Bryan North Loop Neighborhood Minneapolis, MN Engagement

They met while in orientation at Regions hospital. Kim saw Bryan the minute she walked into the room lined with fold-out tables and three-ring binders full of hospital policies and procedures, and it was clear to her that the fellow nursing student needed a little guidance.

Within moments, the pair were chatting, and before they knew it, Kim had agreed to help Bryan outside of the classroom too. Their first date the two perused the mall where Kim helped Bryan pick out some updated pieces for his wardrobe, that he would later return when he discovered he didn't need to make up reasons to hang out with the driven and attractive attendant.

The two worked towards earning their degrees, and their relationship blossomed into being the foundation upon which their dreams grew. Years later, when Bryan asked Kim to join him at the beach while vacationing in California, he surprised her by pulling out a ring and asking her to spend the rest of their lives together.

Her response wasn't what the in medic had in mind when Kim told Bryan that a proper proposal included a bended knee and so much to his chagrin, with a crowd of onlookers watching on, Bryan lowered to one knee to the approval of Kim and proposed all over again. And this time she said yes!

For their engagement session, they choose the Minneapolis Stone Arch Bridge and the North loop Neighborhood. They walked hand-in-hand through the streets and later cozied up to each other in the park…
