Engaged : Eric + Jessica

Jan. 21, 2013 | Engagements

I have been friends with Eric for quite a while so naturally I was sad when he moved from our home town in Southern California all the way to Massachusetts.  I had exclaimed to him "What the heck is in Massachusetts... I mean really, where even IS it!?"  This is coming from someone who found out two years ago that the North Pole is a real place.  Don't judge me.  Little did I know that there was something amazing in Massachusetts.  Something that was about to come over Eric that he couldn't fight.   It would make his feet lift off the ground and his heart beat faster.  And no, I'm not talking about chocolate covered donuts.  It's a little something called "love."  It's in this far, far away place that Eric unexpectedly met Jessica, the girl of his dreams.  And after impressing her with his California moves they soon became an item. 


Eric called me a couple weeks ago and told me he was planning to visit and he wanted to bring this mystery girl, Jessica.  He went on and on about her and how beautiful she was... how happy she made him.  How every time he walked in the door from a long day at work she would greet him with a huge smile as she jumped on him, wrapping her legs around him as tight as she could.  How she was constantly happy and uplifted Eric, making him feel like a better person.  How he would promise her time and time again, "I'm gonna marry you one day..."


Well during their recent visit Eric wanted to fulfill that promise.  He wanted to take Jessica off the market for good.  To "lock it down" as we say.  And I must admit, I have never seen him so happy... he was ridiculously giddy and clearly captivated.  I could finally see why.  Wanting to document his proposal but trying to keep everything a secret Eric asked Jessica if she'd like to have some pictures taken and of course, being a girl, she agreed.  So we headed out to Newport Beach to get the party started. 

These are the exact same outfits these two wore during their very first date. There is quite a funny story behind Jessica's dress but for fear of embarrassing her I will spare you, internet. During their wardrobe change Eric had an opportunity to grab the ring. I love how she still had no clue, haha!
They are officially engaged! I know this shot is out of focus but for some reason I adore it. It's probably my favorite.
