“I have found the one whom my soul loves” Song of Solomon 3:4
Congratulations to Jake and Cora on their engagement! They will be celebrating their love this coming fall, and I absolutely can’t wait!
Let me begin by sharing my love for Cora. Jake is awesome and now part of the big ol’ happy family, but I’ve literally known Cora her entire life. Church brought us together and her family is amazing. I remember when her mother was pregnant with her and seeing that precious blonde baby at church! My husband and I grew up in the church and when we were married, Cora was our flower girl at 3 years old! Then, as time went on, I babysat her and her little brother, so I’ve watched her grow up and fall in love with the best man. The fact that she asked me to capture this sweet moment in their lives, is beyond an honor. It means the world to me and please don’t mind me as I am the photographer crying on the side at the wedding! I’ve already warned her mom!
Jake and Cora’s love story began on the same county road, in the same little town, and the same public school district, but only different years. They lived miles apart on different ranches, but they had no idea that they would one day fall in love and get to spend the rest of their lives together!
Cora shared the story and expressed that she had a major crush on Jake from the very beginning! He was that tall, dark, and handsome basketball and baseball star! She smiled as she explained that that 8th grade crush literally became a reality years later when he asked her on their first date! One date led to another which then led to the proposal!
Jake proposed in the most special way at our home church while she was preparing for a Sunday school class she was teaching. He brought his family in and got down on one knee for all to witness! His nephew and wingman, Ace, helped to make the proposal perfect! And she said YES!
From that moment on, they’ve had great adventures and beautiful glimpses of their future! Cora said that life is better with Jacob Wayne by her side!
Jake and Cora, I am so excited for you two! Thank you for asking me to capture these special, life-long memories!
