How We Met

Jake and I actually met through his sister. We both worked at a gym, the same gym Jake worked out at. Once we were introduced we instantly became friends. We shared the same personality so the laughs and jokes are non stop.

We actually stayed friends for a couple years and then something changed. Our feelings for each other grew and I was smitten by him. Jake has a way of making me feel so loved and happy my smile is always big because of him.

how they asked

Christmas is around the corner so I decided to book a photographer to send Christmas Cards out to my family and friends. After being with Jake for 6 years we have never had professional pictures taken, I figured it was about time. What girl doesn’t want her pictures taken in a Christmas tree farm with her love, so magical.

We get to the farm and begin shooting with the Christmas props, so clearly I had no idea because this is exactly what we planned. Layla our photographer told us to hold hands, look into each other’s eyes and say what we love most about one another. As we told our feelings I began to cry because what he was telling me was so meaningful and from the heart.

As he continued, he thanked me for always being there for him and sticking through the tough times and asked if I would stay with him for the rest of my life. He actually apologized it took so long then got down on one knee.
