Jackie and Derek are Engaged!

Ohio Engagement Session

Jackie and Derek drove from their home in Cleveland down to Massillon, Ohio for their engagement session on Saturday. They had a rainy trip down so we were watching the forecast closely. The rain cleared up just minutes before they pulled in and the sun even came out. It was a beautiful night and we loved chatting with the two of them and getting to know them a little better.

It was November 2nd and Jackie is a fellow Christmas lover like myself so of course that was at the top of our list of conversation. She shared with us that when she was working at Disney they flipped from Halloween right to Christmas over night. That at this point in the year she had been trying on Christmas outfits for various shows and parades for weeks so it was time to celebrate the season! Jackie was a Disney princess. She was both Belle and Ariel while she was at Disney. She said her favorite was Belle and I personally would have to agree. Belle has always been my favorite Disney princess.

As you can see, these two were complete naturals in front of the camera. So full of joy and sweet smiles. We absolutely loved capturing their love and can’t wait for their gorgeous day at Gervasi. It will be full of Italian vibes complete with an Italian meal and of course some Disney songs thrown in there as well!

Jackie and Derek’s Proposal Story

I hope I do this incredible story a little bit of justice because Jackie is an expert story teller and has every detail down. So here goes, my take on Jackie and Derek’s epic proposal story. (Jackie feel free to let me know if I need to modify anything! =) )

Derek planned a special trip on his own for the two of them to fly to London and Italy. After exploring London they headed off to Italy. On one very special day of their trip the weather was rainy and cold. Jackie knew they were going for a walk along the beach so she bundled up, in a few too many layers. Derek asked her if she was sure that she needed all of them but she insisted to keep warm. So off they went for the walk of a lifetime.

Then they arrived to the beach. Derek said he wanted to take some pictures so he set up his tripod to get ready to go. Little did Jackie know that he actually started recording a video. He soon got down on one knee and asked her to marry him on the beach, surrounded by houses on mountain sides in Italy. But wait, it gets even better!

They were then picked up and taken in a private boat to their dinner reservations. I know I didn’t do this incredible story much justice but if you could only image a dream fit for a princess that is exactly what Derek delivered!
