Jenn did her practicum with my older sister at Assurance Care for Women. Jenn is so sweet, very compassionate. It seems so fitting she’d want to help others get through hard things. Because my family is my biggest fan club, Jenn quickly learned that I was a photographer. We decided to meet at Main & Maple coffee house in Nicholasville. It was at that meeting I also met her fiance Jason. Through that conversation about their wedding, what they were looking for in a photographer, etc. I discovered Jason also had a green thumb-like me. It was a quick mention of my peanuts that I’m growing that lead to him telling all the different vegetables in his garden. Jenn and Jason are perfect for each. They are both wonderful people and so excited to start their lives together.
I asked Jenn to share a few words on how they met:
Jason and I met at Applebee’s. He and his friends would come in about once a week to hang out and I had always noticed him because I thought he was cute. I came to find out that he noticed me too because his friends asked another server about me. I was seeing someone at the time, so I didn’t entertain any thought of going out with him. About seven months later, Jason came in to Applebee’s with just one of his friends. It was a slow night, so I was sitting down at a table near by. I smiled at him like I always did and he waved back. After a little bit, he got up from his seat and came over and started talking to me. At the end of the conversation, he asked me out. I wasn’t seeing anyone, so I said yes. And I’m so glad I did! He’s wonderful! We had been dating for a year and 3 months when Jason proposed to me. We planned a hiking trip to Natural Bridge. We brought a blanket and some food for a picnic. I brought my camera because Jason said it would be cool to get pictures of our hike, and I had wanted more pictures of us anyway. On the hike, I took pictures of the scenery and several pictures of us together. It was a beautiful day. After hiking, we settled in a little picnic area where it was just the two of us. As we were eating, Jason got out this beautiful Japanese puzzle box. He said he had wanted me to take pictures because it would make for a good memory and we could put the pictures in this box. It took a little bit for me to figure out how to open the box (Jason had to help some). When I opened it, there was a little black velvet box sitting inside. That’s when Jason told me he loved me and asked me to marry him. I kissed him and then said yes! It was a perfect day.
