Just last week I spent the evening with one of the newest Christina Forbes Couples, Brianna & Pressley! When I first met Brianna via email & during our bridal consult via skype, I just fell in love with her. For one she found me through one of my most loyal brides Hanna-Lee (ya’ll she’s blessed me with 10 other amazing brides just from all her kind words!) and I love how she shares how God truly brought her and Pressley together! I love how Brianna says, “every time I look at my beautiful sparkly ring I think of the journey God has brought us on throughout the last 4 years and nothing would make me happier than to become Mrs. Hales.
Brianna actually bumped into Pressley’s dad, Stan at the parent’s dinner for Orientation at Campbell University. Well, Stan goes to Pressley and starts describing this tall, tan, pretty girl that was just Pressley’s type and that he needed to go find her. Instead of actually getting up and searching, Pressley found Brianna’s facebook profile and with his dad’s confirmation, Pressley found just who his dad wanted him to see. Not too long after that Brianna got a message from Pressley. They instantly hit it off and even found that Pressley’s parents had just purchased a beach house on the same island as Brianna’s hometown of Holden Beach. And in Brianna’s words “after that, it felt like God purposely bumped us into each other”. Pressley asked her out 2 months later on move-in day. After spending 2 years at Campbell University they both decided that they would transfer to NC State University. Together they started their junior year and are almost about to graduate! After their May wedding, they’ll be moving to Columbus, Ohio while Pressley attends Ohio State University for optometry! GO BUCKEYES!!!
They’re both so excited to tackle this next chapter of school and life as a married couple! Here are a few of my favorites from their gorgeous spring NC State University Campus & JC Raulston Arboretum Engagement Portraits. Enjoy!!
