Jessica and Dillon
How We Met
On the night of May 13, 2017, I was celebrating the marriage of my best friend Kayla and her husband Nathan. We went out dancing after the reception to continue celebrating the two. We were all out dancing and having a good time, and then walks in this guy who starts dancing like “Magic Mike.”
My friends noticed him looking at me and pushed me towards him. I was very nervous, so I turned away and he grabs my hand and pulls me in. We spent the rest of the night dancing and talking. I knew then and there this was the start of something good.
How He Asked
Last year in November, me and Dillon planned a photography session with my cousin Christy for when he got back from deployment. We wanted to have some pictures made for ourselves, family and I wanted some for wall decor. So, we planned this session in hope to get some family photos with the puppy and of ourselves. Little did I know, he was planning on proposing to me. We went through two outfits for our photo session and towards the end, my cousin was taking some portraits of me then asked me to stand in this one spot because it was “perfect.”
As I turned around to get in that one spot he got down on one knee! I was so shocked, no idea this was going to happen! From my photos, you can probably see how shocked and excited I was! He had this planned for weeks!
