Courtney and Jacob

Courtney and Jacob 's Engagement in The Peabody Hotel, Memphis TN

How We Met

Jacob and I met almost 6 years ago when we both worked together, I was actually his boss at the time. We worked together for a few years before he left the store. We had mutual friends and kept in touch, we decided to meet and catch up one day and the rest is history! We’ve been together for 3 years and couldn’t be happier.

How They Asked

Jacob really pulled off a surprise engagement. It was my 30th birthday and Jacob told me that we had reservations at this amazing French restaurant, Chez Phillip, at The Peabody Hotel in Memphis TN. I was excited because I had never been to such a fancy restaurant but was feeling less then glamorous since I was 8 months pregnant at the time, but I got ready and we headed downtown. Since I had never been to The Peabody Jacob suggested we go to the roof because it had amazing views of the city and the Mississippi River. Once up on the roof we took in the view and some cliche selfies. It was starting to get chilly and I knew we needed to go because we had a reservation and suggested to head back inside. Jacob told me we had time and the reservation was actually later then he told me earlier. We walked to a quite space on the roof, Jacob was so nervous I could tell something was up. He started to tell me how beautiful I looked and how he knew I didn’t feel great but that he was happy I decided to go out for my birthday. He took my hand told me how much he loved me and got down on one knee!! I was totally shocked! He asked me to be his wife! How could I say no! It was perfect, we spent a few more mins up on the roof taking it all in before heading to the most amazing dinner.
