With the classic red and white barn and open field as their backdrop, we are getting all the rustic Texas vibes from Maddy and Nick’s adorable Howell Family Farms engagement shoot captured by AR Photography! We love that Maddy and Nick included their fur baby into the shoot, and just can’t get enough of this stylish and sweet couple. Read on for their story!

While attending the University of Arkansas, Maddy and Nick met at a mutual friend’s apartment who happened to live next door to Maddy. Six years later, Nick had a huge surprise in store for her! When Maddy decided to tag along with Nick on a work trip to Oahu, Hawaii, Nick began planning the big surprise immediately. On the second day of the trip, the couple had an early morning hike and planned to watch the sunset over the city of Kailua. During their hike along the beautiful mountainside, Nick suggested they take a hidden path down a trail. Maddy suggested otherwise, but complied, unaware of the big moment to come. A few minutes down the trail, Nick asked Maddy to turn off her GoPro, he told her how much he loved her, reached into his backpack to pull out the ring, and got down on one knee! Maddy says she recalls being so overjoyed and surprised that she doesn’t remember saying yes, only “Really?!?!” before jumping into his arms!
The wedding is set for April 2018 at Howell Family Farms – a very special place to Maddy as she visited the family friend’s barn many times during her childhood. With tones of taupe, beige, and ivory, and a special touch of sparkle, Maddy and Nick’s special day is sure to be a rustic wedding dream! Cheers to Nick and Maddy, and happy planning!
