It’s not every day I get to be present when a young man asks his love to be his wife. That was just what happened a couple of weeks ago! Cory contacted me a few weeks before and asked if I could help him out with something. Although I had some idea, I was a little surprised when he told me he wanted to pop the question and to know if I could be there and capture the event. I was surprised because I have known Cory literally since he was a little boy running around kicking a soccer ball and keeping us all in stitches with his funny personality. He was quite the cute little boy and is now a handsome young man. Beautiful Jessie came into his life about 6 years ago at church youth group and I do believe it must have been love at first sight, at least for Cory. It may have taken a little longer for Jessie’s feelings to grow. Time went by and little Cory grew up and captured the eye of Jessie. Eventually they began dating and …well, you can see for yourself! You can see the joy and happiness jumping out of these images. What a blessing to be present for their special time and now they want to share it with you too! Enjoy these images! (By the way, she said YES!)
These next two tell the story and their smiles say it all!
I think he is pretty proud of himself right about now!
God Bless you, Cory and Jessie! My prayer for you is that the joy you feel today will stay alive until you have celebrated your 50th wedding anniversary
and that there will be many more years after that! As long as you remember who is the source of your love and
joy and seek to live for Him, I know you will live happily ever after! Thanks for letting me help with your surprise!
