Recently engaged Julie McCutcheon and Justin Burgoon first met and eventually fell in love while working at a Sonic Drive-In in Flemington. Which is why, when it came to do their engagement shoot, the fast-food chain made perfect sense to serve as the backdrop.

“Since that is where they met, worked together and fell in love, it made sense to me,” he told Us Weekly. “They told me they met at a Sonic. They told me it was kind of over the love of tater tots … I suggested that we should incorporate that in their engagement session. They loved the idea and were totally on board.”
