Jason and Christine met in middle school. For the past 13 years they remained friends, but both dating other people. It was the kind of friendship where no one was surpsied when they actually said they were dating becasue that’s how perfect they are for each other. It’s a great story of God’s timing and changing their hearts for each other. After 13 years, and 6 months of offically dating, Jason decided to get down on one knee.
How it went down:
If anyone knows Christine, they know that she loves her birthday. Jason decided that instead of celebrating her just one day of the year, he would make it a birthday week. Each day she would recieve a voucher. These vouchers were things like flowers at the front desk at work (we all work together), dinner, movie night, and the like. Her voucher on Friday was for a STUNNING piece of jewelry (no, not the ring…). Christine thought it was just a great vintage piece that Jason found along the way. Her voucher on Saturday was for coffee and a walk to the national mall. They got coffee, walked to the mall and Christine got annoyed because she didn’t walk down the entire mall beacsue her feet her, but just wanted to look at it. But Jason and I had planned out a special spot so I can capture the moment, so they had to walk down most of the mall. Sorry Christine : )
When they got to the designated spot, Jason said he had one more voucher for her, and Christine replied, “A BONUS VOUCHER?!?!?!?!” Something like that : ) He then handed her a letter that explained that the necklace she got the night before wasn’t just any necklace, but a necklace that belonged to his godmothers that was given to him to give to his future wife. I think this is when she went in to shock, and Jason started giggling. He then went on to explain how much he loved her and wanted to spend the ret of his life with her.
I was so blessed to be able to watch this moment, as I have been praying for these two since they started dating. I hope you enjoy the photos as much as I enjoyed being there!
