Meant to Be: Provo Canyon First Look

After years in high school never connecting, one could say that Gabby and Caden were destined to find themselves together. It all started with a New Year’s Eve invitation from a mutual friend, when the pair ended up in the same car together while traveling to a cabin party. The two immediately fell for each other, and began dating the next week.

Fast forward to a sunny May Sunday, when Caden and Gabby planned a golf outing at Riverside Golf Club. Upon their arrival, they were told that the front nine was full, but the back was wide open and beautifully scenic. On the second hole, Gabby’s shot veered to the side, and as she ran to get it, Caden quickly stopped her in the cart (feigning that the area was off limits), and they headed to his ball on the green.

What Gabby didn’t know was that Caden was hiding a surprise: a beautiful setup of blankets, florals and photographs preparing for a proposal. At first, she thought the surprise was for someone else and was in a hurry to be on their way. It wasn’t until Caden got down on one knee that she realized the proposal was all for her. No doubt in her mind, she said yes!

A few months later, ahead of their wedding day, the couple posed for an intimate first look in Provo Canyon. In a black suit, Caden waited for Gabby to approach in her hand-laced sheer bodice gown with tulle bow details and a sparkling train. See more of the emotional moment:
