Kayla + Eric {love story}

She asked him to the sweethearts dance – JUST as friends. Kayla had known Eric for about a year, and the two had tons of great memories together even though they attended different high schools. They enjoyed the dance (as friends) and after graduation went their separate ways. It had been almost 7 years before they’d connect again on Facebook. They discovered one another was single, and after a few days of chatting back and forth Eric asked Kayla to dinner. She was cheering for the Rams at the time, and with the date falling on a Monday, she preferred to watch Monday Night Football. She invited him over to watch the game instead. (Not a bad date for most men) ¬†They hadn’t seen one another in 7 years, so both were equally as nervous (although Kayla playfully is reluctant to admit it). They hung out and chatted often, and on New Years Eve they finally shared their first kiss. They officially became a couple with no expectations or pressure. If it worked – it worked and if it didn’t they’d remain friends. Luckily – it worked.
A couple years later Kayla retired from the Rams, and Eric set up a celebration for her with a smorgasbord of her favorite “cheat” meals. Chips, Salsa, Queso, Guacamole, Hot Wings, fried Pickles, and Papa John’s pizza. To this day it was her favorite meal ever. “Would you like to open your retirement present?” he asked. Kayla had been emotional that her time cheering for the Rams had ended, and she thought it was so thoughtful he got her a gift. She opened the box and inside were a gorgeous pair of Jimmy Choos! With that he asked her “Would you wear them on our wedding day?” and with that he was on one knee with a gorgeous diamond ring in the box. From then on she can’t recall everything he said besides the fact that he used her full name (Kayla Breanne Barkau) and that he wanted to propose in their home where they would build a life together. As soon as she happily said yes, they were on the phone with parents and friends who came over and celebrated to the wee hours of the morning.
Kayla and Eric are planning a April 2016 wedding! Enjoy a few photos from their gorgeous engagement session!2015-05-13_00012015-05-13_00022015-05-13_00142015-05-13_00032015-05-13_00042015-05-13_00052015-05-13_00152015-05-13_00092015-05-13_0010
