Jessie and Jake

How We Met: Jake and I met in English class our freshman year of high school. Our two best friends happened to be dating, so we hung out all the time. It wasn’t until the end of senior year that we wanted to date each other but because of college it was “too late”. We lost touch for a year but sparks began to fly again in college and we have been dating ever since!

How He Asked: We were originally supposed to go to St. Thomas for Christmas but our flights were cancelled the day before. Instead we went to Chicago and after dinner one night, Jake asked if we could take a carriage ride to see the lights in downtown Chicago. About halfway through the ride, he turned to me, and asked if I would do the honor of making him the happiest man by becoming his wife!
