While all of my photographer friends were boarding airplanes to attend the world’s largest photography convention in Las Vegas, I guess someone had to stay back to photograph all the weddings that they are missing out on.
Jessica and Travis met their freshman year of high school. Travis had an art class with one of Jessica’s best friends and they met sitting in the hallway waiting for class to start. Jessica made a wise crack about Travis’ Slipknot t-shirt. I think that was my favorite part of the story. Mostly because Travis does not strike me as the type to wear a Slipknot t-shirt at all. Apparently Travis used to ask Jessica about girls – whether or not she thought this one was pretty or that one? Even though they have known each other since high school, they didn’t start dating until 2006.
The proposal came in 2010 on Mother’s Day of all days. Jessica had thought she already knew when Travis was going to propose. She thought it would happen in Charleston, SC where she went to college and was planning on going for vacation with Travis, but apparently Travis couldn’t wait that long. Travis was working that Sunday, but showed up at home around 2pm. Jessica assumed he had forgotten something, or was coming home for lunch, and thought nothing of it. She was watching “How to Lose a Guy in Ten Days” and eating pretzels on the overstuffed chair in their living room while the cats napped near by. Travis came around the corner into the room looking a little flushed, and said: “I don’t think I can wait anymore…” He rushed over and dropped to one knee, saying (a little out of breath) “Will you marry me?!” Ahhh!! I heart random day proposals where there isn’t really a plan and everything can be happy and wonderful. Makes for the best stories.
Jessica and Travis got married this past Saturday at Ceresville Mansion in Frederick. They were totally lucky because it was one of the prettiest February days. They are on their mini moon now in Philly eating awesome cheesesteaks and getting tattoos. They are just too cool for me. Newlyweds – I hope you are having an awesome and totally laid back time! I am so glad to be able to call you friends!
Oh stop it, Jess. You are too cute.
I just love this one for some reason. Absolutely love.
Travis really does have some epic facial expressions.
Ha. Looks like a fail, but really it is the follow through.
Putting the bride to work!
