Cail and Jordan. Engaged.
Cail, the first thing I notice in the photo on the left… how happy you are. The second thing I notice.. your man’s hiney. Good catch. 🙂
COLOR. LOVE. LAUGHS.
Geez, how I love the fall. Football, leaves on the ground. And then lay two lovebirds in that mix and you get this beautiful creation…
Go Bucks. And cute people. I like cute people, too. Go CUTE PEOPLE!
The light, on this VERY COLD evening, was freakin’ tooooooo die for. Thank you, Cail and Jordan, for braving the temps, for trusting me with your ever-so-important engagement and wedding photography. I hope you love these photos to the moon and back. I can’t wait to forever be a part of your lives. XO, friends!
When and where is your wedding?
We’re getting married on May 9th, 2015 at NorthPointe Hotel & Conference Center in Lewis Center, Ohio
How did you meet?
Jordan and I met when we were in middle school through a mutual friend and started dating in junior high. I was in 7th grade and he was in 8th! Who would have thought 9 years later we would be getting ready to get married?!?!
Tell us about your proposal!
On Sunday, August 10th my family told me that we were going to downtown Columbus for a meet and greet event with the Columbus Blue Jackets through my dad’s work. Jordan had told me that he had to go into work and would try and meet me there later, but couldn’t guarantee he would be off work. He showed me a text from him boss the day before asking him to come in, and my dad had shown me a made up invitation to the event we were going to. I got dressed, did my hair & makeup (thank God!) and went with my family downtown. As we walked towards the Nationwide Arena I was totally oblivious to the entire scene happening across the street. It took my mom saying “What that?!” for me to turn and look at the handsome man standing in a suit on the lawn by the Union Station Arch. I cried like a baby! I mean I knew I was emotional, but that reaction took even me by surprise! After a moment I walked down an aisle way lined with tulle and bouquets of roses as a trio
played classical music. Although, to be totally honest, I hardly noticed any of these things until after the proposal was over (I was in shock.. obviously). When I reached the end of the aisle, I hugged Jordan as my hands were shaking. He got down on one knee and popped the question, and of course I said “YES!” –Finally As he stood back up the crowd that I was so oblivious too cheered. I realized that our families were both there and some very close family friends! It was perfect, and SO beautiful!!!! After a photo-op and a champagne toast Jordan and I headed off to a romantic dinner at Martini. I couldn’t have asked for a better proposal, nor dreamed up one that good for myself! I can’t wait to spend the rest of our lives together and so glad that I’ll forever have this incredible memory – I think he’s a keeper!!
What’s your favorite thing about your significant other?
Cail – My favorite thing about jordan is how positive he is! He always knows how to brighten up any situation, and never struggles to see the good in life. He definitely keeps me grounded and is the calm to my crazy. He’s very laid back goes with the flow
Jordan – My favorite thing about Cail is her selflessness. She never hesitates to help me out with anything and does so without questioning or complaining, and I love her for that.
What makes you guys unique?
Jordan and I have grown up together, we’ve gone to junior high, high school, and college together. We’ve done the long distance thing, and through all of our different phases of life, we have grown closer together. Now, I am so excited for the next chapters in our life together, getting married, our first apartment, starting a family, and growing old together. I wouldn’t want to share this life with anyone else.
