One of our favorite things at Apple Brides is hearing how couples got engaged. It’s always such a happy reflection of a duo’s personalities, and we love how unique they all are! So, when this gorgeous light-filled Leavenworth engagement came across our desks, we we’re immediately smitten. What’s not to love?! This gorgeous couple has a super sweet story and matching Converse, to boot!
From the photographer, “She had no idea what was in store that January afternoon when he asked her out to lunch at the local Bonefish Grill. In fact, a proposal didn’t even cross Jordan’s mind when putting on her nice blouse and jeans to head out for her day date with Dyllan. All through lunch Dyllan sat nervously anticipating the big moment that was soon to come. He was secretly hoping no one in the restaurant (especially not Jordan), would spot the lump in his pocket which held the ring. After lunch it had seemed as though their thoughts aligned perfectly, as Jordan suggested going to the bench that they frequented often. A place that held special meaning in their relationship. Little did she know that Dyllan had planned this exact idea out weeks ahead of time.
As they started drawing near to their spot, Jordan’s heart sank as she noticed a person sitting in the direction they were headed. As they drew near, the person on the bench casually turned towards them revealing her identity and leaving Jordan with the biggest grin on her face. Kate, Jordan’s best friend had flown all the way from Chapel Hill, North Carolina for this moment, one Jordan was still not clued in on. As they hugged, Jordan noticed out of the corner of her eye that both her family and Dyllan’s were heading towards their exact location. Both curious and excited, she asked Dyllan what was going as she knew in her heart something had been orchestrated without her knowledge. As their families approached, it was at that moment that Dyllan got on one knee and asked Jordan to be his wife. And the rest my friends, is history.
While I know I say this often, it must be said that Jordan and Dyllan truly have a chemistry that is incomparable to any movie I’ve seen or book I’ve read. Anyone whom is in their presence, can attest these two are soul mates – as it’s so clear to see in the way they look and talk with one another.”
