Hollyn + Doug

St. Louis Wedding Photographers - Central West End Engagement Photos by Oldani Photography

Central West End / CWE / Forest Park

Hollyn surprised Doug with the idea to wear their St. Louis Blues hockey jerseys.  Doug is a big fan and they enjoy going to games together.  The CWE was a great place to sport the jerseys.

After a quick wardrobe change we hung out in the Central West End for a little longer.  It was pretty windy and chilly but these two kept their spirits up and we had a great time.  I think it helps that Hollyn grew up having fun in front of the camera with her sisters.

We decided we needed to get all the sun we could so we headed over to Forest Park.  I loved how Hollyn could make Doug just break out in laughter.  I think it was my favorite part of the day.

What was your first date?: St. Louis Zoo

How did he propose?: Doug came down to help me move out of my house in Rolla. Before we hit the road, he asked if we could walk around a park where we got to know each other when we both were in college. We sat on a bench by the lake, and while chatting about how excited we were to be in the same town again, he got down on one knee, proposed, and of course, I said YES!

Is there a tv show you two can't miss?: We prefer watching the live arts together (Muny, Fox, STL Symphony, etc). We don't watch too much TV.
