Laurie and Jimmy met through church- Jimmy's father is the preacher- and it only took him eight months (after they "finally" began dating) to realize that Laurie is the one. On December 1, 2013, Jimmy proposed.
Laurie says it was "the perfect moment in time" at Finnegan's Fine Firs tree farm. The couple was hunting for a tree amidst a lightly snowing backdrop complete with Michael Buble singing Christmas songs from Laurie's phone. When suddenly, Jimmy told Laurie he had their first ornament: a Zales Jewelry box! =D But there was no ring in it. =0 Eventually Jimmy lowered himself to one knee and pulled it out of his pocket. =D!
He totally knows how to pick them.
(Rings and fiancees!)
Laurie says he wasn't lying about the ornament part, and drilled a hole in the box to hang on their tree. I'm so honored they asked me to take pictures, and I have to say it was my best and most favorite shoot to date. Laurie's an aspiring photographer herself, and chose the Adair Country Inn & Restaurant in Bethlehem as the back drop. Although I'm in the works of developing a blog for MegaBug Photography, I just had to write about this. After scrolling down, you'll understand why: these two are absolutely adorable!
Jimmy & Laurie are to be married June 14, 2014.
