Tell us how you first met? Who, what, when, where, why? Give us the dirty details.
“We met at Abby's Cabin in Avon, MN over the 4th of July 2016. Abby's family always has a huge 4th of July celebration and through mutual friends Jeremy was invited. “
When did you know he/she was the one? Was there something he/she did?, etc.
“Jeremy knew the moment he saw Abby on July 2nd, 2016 that she was the one. Jeremy fell in love with Abby's spunky, fun loving personality that day.”
Tell us about the proposal. (Did you see it coming, how long was it in the planning?, how did you feel? nervous, excited, freaking out?)
"Jeremy planned the perfect proposal for almost a year. Jeremy worked with a jeweler designing Abby a one of a kind ring. But, before purchasing the ring, Jeremy got Abby's dads permission (such a gentlemen). After Jeremy was given permission, it was full speed ahead. Jeremy planned a romantic weekend getaway in Minneapolis. The day before they left for their weekend getaway in Minneapolis, Jeremy got a call from the jeweler stating the ring was not done, oh no! So, the romantic weekend getaway was just that. No engagement happened. So, Jeremy went back to the drawing board to plan the perfect most unforgettable proposal. With the ring in his hand, he was ready to go. So, On June 23, 2018, Jeremy picked Abby up from her parents house for a "date day." Abby's parents knew what was happening, so they encouraged Abby to dress up for the "date day." Abby was stunningly beautiful when Jeremy picked her up. Abby was a chatty kathy the entire car ride with Jeremy not having much to say as he was nervous. Jeremy and Abby arrived at the Spoon and Cherry (Walker Art Center) for their date day and Abby was SO excited! She had been wanting to see the Spoon and Cheery with Jeremy since they started dating, but Jeremy never wanted to go. Abby was smiling ear to ear and could not walk fast enough to the Spoon and Cheery. Jeremy was following close behind feeling a tad light headed and sweaty knowing he was about the ask the most beautiful women in the world to be his wife. Abby gave her phone to a stranger to take a photo of them in front of the Spoon and Cherry. Jeremy kept telling the stranger to, "TAKE A LOT OF PHOTOS." As they were taking their photos, Jeremy got down on his knee and asked Abby to marry him. Abby was in pure bliss. Abby was SO excited to be spending the rest of her life with her best friend.”
Tell us the one thing you love most about each other.
Abby: "The one thing I love most about Jeremy is his ability to make me laugh and smile."
Jeremy: " The one thing I love most about Abby is how caring she is AND she is so BEAUTIFUL."
If you feel comfortable, share with us something silly or quirky the other person does.
Abby: "Whenever Jeremy is excited and/or trying to be funny he likes to wink at people, but he doesn't know how to wink so his eye twitches uncontrollably." (If you see his eye twitch, its sure to make you laugh) Jeremy: " Abby LOVES desserts. Any time, any day you can catch Abby sniffing for a good dessert. She gets all gitty and is instantly in a good mood. If she's in a good mood, that chances are she just ate something sweet."
Besides getting married - whats the one thing you are looking forward to on your wedding day?
Jeremy: "I am looking forward to seeing our friends and family. Many of my friends are flying in for our wedding, so I look forward to visiting and catching up with them all."
Abby: "I am looking forward to dancing and eating our wedding cake."
Explain why you made the decision to work with Lora & Isaac?
“We knew from the moment we talked to Isaac on the phone about possibly using them as our photographer that we wanted to hire them. We could tell on the phone how passionate he was about photography and he was very down to earth. We had to opportunity to view some of their past work and it was AMAZING! At our engagement photo session, we had the opportunity to get to know Lora and Isaac better and oh my goodness they are so kind, comforting and accommodating. Taking photos can sometime be uncomfortable,but they knew who to make us laugh and positioned us to get amazing pictures. Lora made our wedding day truly special. She is a phenomenal photographer and we cannot that her enough.”
