If ever there were a mirror image of my husband and I, it would certainly be Jessica and Hensley. The day we sat down to meet the lucky couple, it was hard to ignore the feeling of reconnecting with old friends. My usual 60 minute consultation ended up turning into a 5 hour double date.
Here’s why I love this couple …
Hensley proposed to Jessica one evening during a dinner party in front of family and friends. But this wasn’t your average proposal and it most certainly wasn’t your average dinner party. Hensley, masterfully organized a “Chopped” (*gasp* 😮 MY FAVORITE Food Network Show) themed dinner party where he secretly plotted to pop to the big question. A full cook off, a secret ingredient and a camera crew in tow. The family had been in on the scheme all along, but Jessica had no clue about how her life would change that night. After the final tasting and judgement, Hensley had a very important question for his future wife. Everyone wins! The best part is they’ll always have footage of this very special spectacle to remember for ever.
I was and still am thoroughly impressed with their elaborate surprise engagement story. This is a couple that truly cares about making lasting memories. And their ideas for their engagement session were no different. Jessica and Hensley have a story. They most certainly have style. And they wanted their official images to reflect who they are and will be as a couple today and forever.
Count down to your wedding day guys!! I can’t wait to witness your “I Do”‘s and make more memories for you two!
