Marissa & I have been friends for aaaagggesssss. Eighth grade sticks out in my mind. I’m pretty sure we were those friends who had a special notebook that we passed back and forth with all of our boy gossip. If I looked, I MIGHT find that notebook in my closet.
Marissa & Jordan have been on a wedding planning ROLL since they got engaged. I’m so honored to be a part of their plans! Jordan told me that as soon as they got engaged, Marissa said, “At least we don’t have to worry about a photographer — I need to call Shalese.” I MEAN. I just floated on home after hearing that!
So, to celebrate how much Jordan adores Marissa (it’s PRETTY obvious, even roughly 20 seconds after meeting him), we headed back to their first date spot, Joe’s Inn. It was a blind date, you guys! They were brave enough to go on a blind date set up by a mutual friend, and BOOM, we’re taking their engagement photos there. You never know when your soulmate is just around the corner. 😉
Also, you never know when a gorgeous blossoming tree with a white picket fence is just around the corner, too.
Look at this little nugget!! Marissa adopted Batman from Richmond Animal Care & Control, and he is such a little lover.
Look at that little grin!!
It was hard to stop smiling and joking long enough to get a good “GQ face,” but DAMN IT WAS WORTH IT. Look at these models!!!
And of course, we ended the day by . . . twirlin’ on em. 😉
Marissa, Jordan, & Batman,
Thank you for being so FUN and fabulous! It was so great to get to see one of my dearest old friends SO HAPPY with such an awesome guy. Also, thank you for bringing such a killer entourage. 😉
