This past March began the greatest journey I’ve ever experienced this far in life as a young twenty-something: the engagement to my love and best friend. Life has been a whirlwind trying to balance work, school, and wedding planning. But I thought I would share my favorite story I’ve ever told on my blog today. My engagement story!
Cocoa Beach has always held a special place in our hearts. The second half of our first date was spent there walking along the shore for hours. That was the first and last time we had been to Cocoa together…that was, until March 12, 2016.
We spent all day in Cape Canaveral and after dinner, we drove over to Cocoa Beach and retraced the same path we wandered down back in January of 2015 (our first date!). It was near sunset (when everything already becomes a bit more magical) when Jordan got down on one knee, making that spot even more special to us than it already was.
March 12 will always be one of the best days we’ve ever had together, and a day we excitedly get to share with our family and friends because Jordan planned a secret photographer to capture our entire evening; we were even able to celebrate with a little impromptu engagement shoot right after saying “yes!” to forever.
A photo compilation of our engagement is coming soon! Stay tuned 🙂
