It was so nice to get out of the desert heat, and travel up north for Cherry & Eric’s Jerome engagement photos. For you locals, if you haven’t been to Jerome, you really need to take a day trip up there. The views are incredible and the winding roads up the mountainside can’t be beat! It’s a sleepy little town that used to be an old mining town. Now I’d say it’s known for bikers and tourists, but there are so many cute little shops and stores to enjoy.
We started out the day at Caduceus Cellars, one of Cherry & Eric’s favorite spots for wine tastings. Most of the wine is made from grapes grown in Arizona. Who knew Arizona could make such great wine? We enjoyed a flight and some cheese, then headed out into the streets of Jerome for our afternoon of fun. Cherry & Eric are also getting married on “pi” day, so they brought along some pies to commemorate it!
I asked Eric how he proposed to Cherry:
“We got engaged on May 10th of this year. We were living in Austin and I made a promise to myself that if we were to move back to Arizona, the first thing I wanted to do was marry Cherry. I knew that music was a big part of how we met and it continues to be a big part of our relationship. So continuing with that theme, I decided to propose at the live music capital of the world. We enjoyed an evening of great food downtown, followed by a stroll in front of the Texas Capitol building, where I got on one knee and asked her to marry me. Cherry started crying as soon as she saw me get on my knee and after some time said ‘Yes I’ll f***king marry you!’ “
Love it!! You two are so adorable I can’t even handle it. So excited for your wedding!!
