How We Met

I am proud to announce that we are getting married on September 27th, 2014!

July_2013-002We met at the LA Dream Center while Jesse was an intern and I was part of the Leadership School. While at the Dream Center, we became friends and created a lot of special memories. Our relationship didn’t really blossom until a few weeks after I graduated. That was just the beginning of our wonderful journey!

We decided that our courtship would be at least a year and during July_2013-077that time we’ve grown closer to the Lord and each other in so many amazing ways. We both were able to get our first jobs, experience working with youth and I was able to get my driver’s license!

As we gaze into each other eyes, we both look back and see how much we’ve accomplished as a couple. We look forward to the future and all of the exciting new things the Lord has for us.

In creating this page, we wanted to allow you to be a part of this journey by contributing towards our future together here.

Our Engagement

I still get butterflies thinking back on May 3rd of this year when Jesse finally popped the question.

A week before Jesse’s birthday, he planned a small trip to the beach for us and a couple of our close friends, Tim and Whitney (who ended up being our secret photographers). Obviously, because it was so close to his birthday, I was totally oblivious to everything on this day and figured we were celebrating his birthday early.

After a day of making sand castles, digging random holes, walking the beach to look for May_2014 064shells, enjoying a delicious lunch filled with laughs, and enduring a freezing cold swim, I figured this day couldn’t be any better. I was wrong. While we were gazing at the beautiful sunset, Jesse looked at me and offered to go on a walk on the beach and I said yes. I was already excited, because I had always wanted to walk on a sunset beach with him.

I , of course, said YES and we are now planning a wedding.
