A Park Engagement Session Filled with Lots of Sparkle

Cassandra Reiher + Joseph Wolljung | Apr 8, 2018

Cassandra and Joseph met on a Thursday night when Cassandra was attending Alive After 5 in Uptown Charlotte with some friends. While at Rooftop 210, one of her friends pointed out a security guard that she thought was cute so Cassandra approached him in a wing-woman attempt. She introduced the two of them and then went back later to see what he thought of her friend. That time, she saw another security guard had joined and Cassandra introduced herself to him to which he responded with his name. They exchanged a few words before Cassandra and her friends left to go to another bar. Two nights later, she saw Joseph again working at Rooftop 210 where she spent the next hour talking his ear off before finally asking him, “Are you going to ask for my number or what?” She entered her number into his phone and the very next day he asked her out on a date! 

Cassandra knew Joseph was the one from the start and the two always talked about getting married. In September, Joseph made plans to celebrate their three year anniversary by taking Cassandra to a vineyard outside of Charlotte. They spent the day touring the grounds and had a private wine tasting complete with chocolates. After their tasting, they took a walk around the vineyards and Cassandra recalls being able to feel Joseph’s heart racing halfway through their walk saying, “It was fairly warm for a September day… I assumed the heat was getting to him!” Little did she know, Joseph’s heart was beating fast for other reasons and when he asked if they could stop for a second, he got down on one knee and asked her to marry him! To make things even better, Joseph had asked for Cassandra’s father’s permission and he had arranged for her family, his family and their closest friends to meet them back in Charlotte at a wine bar to celebrate the engagement!

Cassandra and Joseph had the most adorable engagement session with Amanda Moss Photography in Uptown Charlotte. They started off at Elizabeth Park where they twirled and kissed, enjoying a champagne picnic with each other. Afterward, they changed into fancy clothes; Cassandra in a fabulous sparkly jumper and Joseph in a stylish gray suit. They then took the shoot to a rooftop surrounded by the skyline where they continued to have so much fun celebrating their upcoming marriage!

Congratulations, Cassandra and Joseph!
