Creative Firefighter Themed E-Session by Natarsha N. Wright Photography: Chintil and Kevin

When Kevin proposed to Chintil, it was a sweet surprise. Chintil returned home on her birthday to find Kevin suspiciously moving around in the kitchen. He told Chintil he had a birthday surprise for her and then instructed Chintil to close her eyes and follow him.  When she opened her eyes, Chintil saw a beautiful birthday cake with the words, "Will you marry me?" written across the top! This couple celebrated their engagement by planning a creative e-session, which celebrated their love and highlighted Kevin's career as a firefighter.  The fire and chemistry between this couple was captured by Natarsha N. Wright Photography.

  • Bride: Chintil Lynch- Employment Advisor/Advocate
  • Groom: Kevin Gilmore- Firefighter

How They Met

Kevin and I have always know of each other because we attended the same high school. We reconnected 10 years later over Facebook.

The Proposal

THE CAKE- April 27, 2011

I returned home after going for a little pampering for my birthday. I was met at the door and asked to stay away from the kitchen. I laughed because I found it weird, but I agreed and got settled. Kevin approached me and asked if I was ready for my birthday present, I said, "Sure!" He took me by the hand and asked me to close my eyes and follow his lead. When we finally stopped he told me to open my eyes. When I opened my eyes there was a beautiful birthday cake that read “Will You Marry Me?” Shocked and surprised (hand covering mouth) I immediately started to cry! He asked me to turn around and when I did he was down on bended knee with the ring and our dog Major by his side. Overwhelmed with nerves and excitement Kevin asked me if I would make him the happiest man in the world and be his wife…….after I gained my composure I said YES! The rest is history and we've be inseparable ever since!

You Make Loving You So Easy

From the Groom...Kevin loves everything about ME! It's an amazing gift to find someone who knows all your flaws, differences and mistakes, yet still love everything about you!

From the Bride...I love Kevin's heart for me! I've never encountered a man who loves me the way he does! I feel safe in his arms......he's my heart's hero!
