Sally & Drew’s Downtown Newberry Engagement

Sally and Drew go WAY back…all the way to middle school in Newberry, in fact! I think Sally told their story perfectly in her own words when she said, “Naturally, our relationship went the way of most middle school relationships– we dated for about a month and decided it’d be best to ‘just stay friends.’ We thought 8th grade was the end of our relationship as more than ‘just friends’, but we began dating again in college!”  A decade after their middle school romance, they were in San Diego for Drew to attend job training, and he surprised Sally by popping the question! Of course, she said yes, and now here we are!

This past April, as an early birthday gift for Sally, Drew got the sweetest little bulldog puppy you would ever want to meet, and they named her Ellie. Ellie was a joy to have in their engagement photos, and I have to shout out to Drew’s parents for helping out with her on a SUPER hot day downtown Newberry!

Thank goodness Half Full Coffee & Wine Bar was open so they could cool off and enjoy a drink before sunset!

Once it got a bit darker outside, we headed to the courtyard between the Newberry Opera House and the Firehouse Conference Center, where Sally and Drew’s reception will be held next May!2016-07-31_0022 2016-07-31_0023 2016-07-31_0026 2016-07-31_0027 2016-07-31_0028 2016-07-31_0030 2016-07-31_0031 2016-07-31_0032 2016-07-31_0034 2016-07-31_0035
