Paige was good friends with Jared’s twin cousins in high school and graduated with his sister. After graduation the girls talked her into joining their family at Lake Of the Ozarks for a getaway. It didn’t take long for Paige to fit tight in with their family and become close with them – like a second family. A couple days in she was warned that Jared would be joining them. She was 18 and overconfident – she was in no way wary of a strong personality joining the mix. However when Jared showed up, Paige was in trouble. It was instant. They followed one another around the entire weekend and never grew tired of flirting.
When the returned back home life pulled them different directions, but any time she would hang out with his family there was still that spark between them. They lit up around one another every single time. Everyone could see how meant to be these two were, so Jared’s mom took control and decided to invite Paige on their family trip to Jamaica. The two knew that their hearts belonged to the other, and have been together ever since.
Paige had been trying to have “the talk” about their future but Jared was having none of it. He continued to blow it off, making Paige a little worried after investing her heart and 3 years into Jared and his family. While she was feeling tense about him not wanting to commit, he was apparently feeling sick after dinner and went back to the villa. She hurried on a golf cart with his mom to make sure he was OK and upon arriving saw Jared on their balcony overlooking the ocean surrounded by candles and a bottle of champagne. “You know what this is” he said and dropped on to one knee and asked her to marry him (all while his mom captured the entire moment with her camera). As the moment sank in, Paige was filled with a deep sense of elation, love, and honor – and they continue to feel that each and every day that they spend together. It was the best day of their lives.
The new best day of their lives will be in April 2016 when they say their “I dos”. Enjoy a sneak peek at Paige and Jared’s AWESOME urban engagement session!!!!
