We're welcoming Diego and Christi to the blog today! We absolutely loved getting to know them during their engagement session earlier this Fall. It really was the most beautiful day to be on an adventure with these two at the edge of the picturesque Columbia River Gorge!
If you don't already know this cute couple, heres a little bit about them. Diego and Christi met on social media! Their love story began when Diego hit up Christi on the DM’s and since then the communication never stopped. However, Christi was a little hard to get at first and made it difficult for Diego. But after 5 months Diego’s hard work paid off, and he conquered Christi’s heart and asked her to be his girlfriend,…and she said yes! Their love for each other has grown more and more each day.
7 months later this happened: What Christi thought was going to be a normal girls night out, turned out to be her engagement party! Diego planned a beautiful outdoor surprise engagement at Grateful Vineyard in Parkdale, OR. All of their closest family and friends were there to witness a surprise engagement go down! Diego made a “Will You Marry Me?” setup among the vineyards and with Mt Hood in the background, using flowers and Christi’s favorite color everywhere.
Everything seems to point to these two being made for each other! Christi tells me that they are very, very similar to each other! It’s more than just having things in common. They agree on so many things, if not, on most things.
These two are so much fun! Diego makes Christi laugh a lot, and memes make Diego laugh a lot. They love to eat, dance, see new places, try new cocktails, go to concerts, hiking, art galleries, and talk for hours and hours!
Enjoy our favorite portraits of this genuine couple!
