Golden Ohio Fall Engagement Session’s Story from bride-to-be Hannah:
“Jesse and I grew up in the same youth group. Of course, me being a couple years older than him, I only knew him as a funny little fourteen-year old. I never thought that I would end up marrying him – he had other plans. His humor kept us friends as we grew up in youth group together, and as we got older his character and love for Christ made me see him less and less as a boy. When he was around sixteen, we started to hang out as friends and his family would invite me over for dinner and movies. I can’t tell you exactly when we started “dating” because I think we both knew we would end up together the more time we spent with each other. I always say our relationship was a matter of fact- I think we knew we loved each other and would end up together long before we said “I love you.” The next few years were filled with graduation, starting college, and more dating. Jesse is the funniest guy I know – his humor still keeps us friends but his character is what makes me choose to love him each day. I think Eastlyn’s session captured us perfectly- always laughing and full of love.”
