Paris and Valentin’s gorgeous pre-renewal photoshoot was equal parts glamorous and classy!
The couple first met at a wedding in New Jersey but did not introduce themselves until a year later when they happened to meet again in Maryland. From that point on they were inseparable. They’re beyond excited to celebrate their 10th-year renewal this June!
This pre-renewal photoshoot told us so much about their love story and how they have been for the past decade that they have been together. They could barely keep their eyes and hands off each other…Victoria Ogunjinmi (Enchanted Events and Weddings)

Tell us about how you met and the proposal
We caught each other’s eyes across the table. Though Valentin was smitten, and we were both mesmerized, we did not speak at that moment. Fast forward a year after the encounter in New Jersey and we met again in Maryland, the rest was history. Valentin proposed over a surprise romantic candlelight dinner on our initial meeting anniversary date.
