Buckle in and get ready for the best joy-filled engagement session with two Kansas City cuties. We met up in the desert for their engagement photos in Phoenix, Arizona and had such a blast. We cheered to their favorite beer brews, listened to Yeah by Usher and took in the insane cacti-filled desert scenery. Here’s their story:
How They Met:
“Jacob and I first met when we were 16. I had just moved to Kansas City from Las Vegas, my Aunt and Jacob’s Mom are friends and thought we should “hang out”. We dated for a bit throughout high school but ultimately went our separate ways after graduation in 2006. We went off to college and lived our separate lives for years, then, in 2012 the universe brought us back into each others lives and in 2013 we were officially dating!”
“It was a Friday night. Jacob had my Mom take me out for happy hour. Afterwards, my Mom dropped me off at home. When I opened the door to our loft, all of the lights were off but candles lit up the whole space. Our dog Charlie ran up to me and I noticed an unfamiliar jingle coming from him. When I looked down at his collar he had a tag that read, “Mom, Dad wants to know if you’ll say yes”
Their Favorite Adventure:
“Our first best adventure that comes to mind was last year when we went on vacation. We were suppose to be going to Charleston, South Carolina and then a couple days before we left a hurricane hit and we had to quickly change our destination. (We both already took time off of work and really needed to get away so postponing was not an option.) We wanted to find a new flight destination that was around the same budget we had when planning South Carolina and with such short notice we didn’t have many options. We randomly decided upon Milwaukee, Wisconsin and honestly it was one of the best times we’ve ever had! It rained the whole entire time we were there but we did not care, it was a tolerable rain. We went to tons of awesome breweries, found a gorgeous little lighthouse, stumbled upon a beach. Once we started walking down the beach an airshow started! We ate so much delicious food and honestly just had a blast walking around and exploring the city together in the rain. We both loved that trip more than I can describe and will always cherish the memories we made there!
We love just being around each other, period. We love our quiet days/nights in just munching down on snack foods while binging watching Netflix, we love to cook together, taking our dog on adventures around the city, hiking, trying out new restaurants and breweries in town. As long as we’re together, we like doing it all!”
Ashley and Jacob are the absolute BEST and exude so much happiness. It’s so clear how deeply they care about each other and love living life with one another – their engagement photos in Phoenix, Arizona are such clear poof of how they feel.
I’m 100% counting down the days to their Sedona wedding this Fall!
