Louise & Jarrell | Engagement Session
St. Stan’s Carnival in Sayerville, NJ
How did we meet?
In 2006 we both attended Katherine Gibbs school but for different majors. We ended up having one class together called career development. We NEVER talked, just exchanged smiles when passing each other in the halls. I found him on MYSPACE!!! And requested him as a friend. I used to drive a red Mitsubishi Eclipse that I had crashed a few years prior to meeting, but notice he drove a black one at the time. So, I used that to start a conversation. Some corny pick up line.. “I see you drive an Eclipse, I used to have the same one”… It WORKED! We started talking and he was HOOKED!! Lol.
How did he propose?
As tradition my family and I went to our annual Breakfast with Santa at the Jumping Brook Country Club in Colts Neck, NJ. The year before I sat on Santa’s lap and told him what I wanted for Christmas.. a beautiful engagement ring!! So, on December 6, 2015 a year later Santa called me over, sat me down and asked if I ever got that special gift? My response was “Not yet, I’m still waiting!” Next thing I know, Jarrell, my now fiance, asked Santa if Christmas could come early? and Santa said “Of course!” So, Jarrell got down on one knee and asked “Will you marry me?” I was in shock, at that time we had been dating 9 years and I had no clue he was planning this beautiful moment with family, friends and Santa all gathered around.
My favorite memory together?
There’s a few…
The day we got engaged of course! The day we moved into our first place together and the day we got our adorable fur-baby/puppy Gizmo.
What is one thing your significant other does that always makes you smile?
Whenever I take my engagement ring off to shower, cook or whatever, if he sees it off my finger he gets down on one knee and proposes all over again.
What makes him smile?
Watching me sleep. Lol.
Favorite Activity together?
Going to the carnival and getting cotton candy. That’s why we chose the carnival theme for our engagement shoot.
