They were all dressed up for Christmas Eve. Why not take a few photos at the park with his sister and her family? Jesse wasn’t sure how Orie would respond to his suggestion. After all, they had taken family photos at the same park just a few weeks earlier to use for Christmas presents. But with his sister-in-law’s help, it was all arranged.
They walked around the lake, enjoying the beautiful weather, and stopped at one of the wooden decks overlooking the water. The sun was just starting to dip down behind the trees that surrounded the lake. Excited and full of energy, the kids ran a little ways down the path. Jesse knew that was his cue.
The next moment, he was down on one knee, trying to find the words to express how deeply he loved her. How much she meant to him. How he wanted to do everything in his power to take care of her and Jude and make them both happy. The words had been running through his mind for days, for weeks. She was the very sunshine of his life and he knew he wanted to spend the rest of his life with her.
Orie’s tears made it difficult to distinguish her answer. But it was a yes. It had always been a yes.
Orie & Jesse, your engagement session at the Francis Land House was the perfect way to kick off my spring engagement sessions! I cannot wait for your wedding this fall!
Is there a sparkly new ring on your finger? Booking for 2017 is now open and I still have a few dates left in 2016 too! I'd love to hear about your big day!
