Lydia and Jessie
How We Met
Jessie and I are high school sweethearts! We actually were “boyfriend and girlfriend” in middle school if that even counts. He pursued me after getting my cell phone number from a boy on his school bus. Fast forward 10 years and we are still together!! We’ve been through high school, college, and the start of our careers and we are so excited to take on forever!!
How He Asked
Jessie proposed on September 29, 2018, at the beautiful Greer’s Ferry Lake in Arkansas. He had the whole weekend planned out and I didn’t have the slightest clue! On our way to go meet his parents for dinner, he told me his mom wasn’t ready yet and that we should ride up to go look at the sunset on the cliff. Jess drove me up to the top of a mountain and down a little trail where he had my late grandmother’s rocking chair on the cliff overlooking the lake with an engraved bible lying on it and Scotty McCreery’s song “This is it” playing in the background.
The moment I saw my grandmother’s chair the tears started flowing and then I looked at Jess who had the biggest tears coming from his blue eyes… the sweetest moment that I will always cherish!! To top things off, Jess proposed with a ring custom made by my uncle. I will forever remember how thoughtful our proposal was and I am so blessed to spend forever with a man who loves me more than I can comprehend!!
