Ian knew right away that Roxie was the woman he wanted to marry. It took Roxie a couple of years to figure it out. “He still will not let me live that one down!” Roxie days.
On Christmas morning as Ian and Roxie were celebrating with their family, Ian went to check on the wood stove and came back dressed as Santa. “He had a huge bag with gifts for our whole family, and he gave everyone their gifts but me,” Roxie says. He eventually presented her with a huge box. When Roxie opened it there was a smaller box inside, and so on and so forth. While she was opening the very last, tiny box, Ian took off the Santa beard and hat and got down on one knee.
The couple had their engagement photos taken by Michelle Garner Photography along the banks of the Kenduskeag Stream in Bangor. “It’s beautiful, and different from other engagement pictures we have seen,” Roxie says. The colored powder added an extra element of fun!
