Leah & Jonathan : Jungle Gardens Engagement

May 19, 2014

I can’t tell y’all how excited I am to have had the pleasure to meet these two. They are SO fun together and the afternoon was full of jokes and laughter, which makes any shoot that much better 🙂 I can’t wait till their August wedding!

Jonathan chose to propose last May on his mothers birthday, who passed away when he was young. And this is how the day went,

“I was studying for the auditing section of the CPA exam & in full panic mode because my test was that Monday. He left for “work” but really drove to Baton Rouge to pick up my ring because it had just came in the day before. After eating lunch at the Subway where Jonathan and I had our first actual conversation (we had a class together but I never noticed him) and getting my nails done with my mom, I came back home to a note saying to go meet him and Lola, our dog, at the park. When we drove up, he was waiting by the water with Lola in a wedding dress. I thought that he had actually gotten me another dog because I had been wanting a boy – hence I thought she was getting married (dumb moment, I know. But I was studying and never once thought he was proposing)! He then got down on one knee, while holding Lola and asked…and after laughing at my dog while crying at the same time I managed to squeak out a “yes”! My mom yelled and then that’s when I realized that he had his dad there and his step-mom was hiding taking pictures of the whole thing!

He literally organized the whole thing. From including Lola to having mom bring me to lunch at Subway and getting my nails done so when Mrs. Karen took pictures they would be pretty (because he knows me well lol). It was wonderful. He had a poem that he had written that included his mom but he said he was too nervous so he forgot it hahaha!!
