Here at Cake and Lace, we love unique engagement shoots, and this baseball engagement session certainly falls into that category!
Here’s a quick Q&A with this gorgeous couple:
Tell us how you first met?
Momma’s know best! Our story began thanks to Alejandro’s Mom who’d I’d often see at church, and she mentioned to Alejandro that she thought I was single because she always saw me alone.
She later found me on Instagram and told him to follow me. Shortly after, he direct messaged me and introduced himself. He also mentioned that we attended the same church.
Alejandro had left to play baseball in North Dakota the same year I started attending this church, hence why we never met. However, after talking on social media, he came down, and we met for our first date…to Chipotle, haha!
I couldn’t believe I was on a date with someone who sent me a DM. I always told myself I wouldn’t do that, yet he sounded too good to be true. We went on 3 dates. However, we didn’t properly start dating until a year later.
He claims I was playing hard to get, I claim it was worth the wait.
When did you know he/she was the one? Was there something he/she sais, did? Etc.
We both knew fairly quickly we were meant to grow gray and old together. We both grew up surrounded by family, shared the same beliefs, hobbies, and both had personal goals.
I think that’s why we always spoke about building things together and realized there wasn’t anyone else who compared to one another, in so many aspects!
Tell us about the proposal?!
A diamond is a girl’s best friend! As a former softball and baseball player, we’d always love to go play catch and talk baseball. To us, there’s no better view, atmosphere or game like being on the diamond. So what better birthday trip than to go see our favorite team in their home state.
Alejandro planned to travel to Boston for his birthday because he’d never been. He invited my parents, his parents, and his sister. At first, I became suspicious since my family, and I had already been to Boston and visited Fenway Park.
However, I didn’t give it too much thought because the trip was specifically for his birthday.So we boarded the plane the day after his birthday and made it all the way to Boston. After 3 days of strolling through the city, game day finally arrived!
We arrived at Fenway Park for batting practice before the game. As we watched our team warm up, he put his arm around me and said: “You know this trip was really all for you.”
He then got down on one knee and asked me to spend the rest of my life with him. Now we can really say it all started with and on a diamond!
What’s the one thing you love most about each other?
Priscilla: It’s all about the details! I love how he’s very attentive to detail, he’s a great listener and always looks out for my best interest. He takes care of me and never forgets the little things. He’s the definition of a true gentleman.
Alejandro: I love how she always worries about me and makes sure I’m fed and taken care of, she’s very attentive to my wants and needs. She never fails to surprise me. Her drive for success attracts me most to her, and she always exceeds her goals. She honestly makes the happiest man alive.
Besides getting married – what are you looking forward to most on your wedding day?
As a young couple, we look forward to building our lives together. Having someone to share memories with, by traveling and spoiling ourselves. We hope to look back in a couple of years and see how far we’ve come and how much we’ve grown in many different aspects.
