This was one of the “bloomy-est” days in Charleston this year and made for a cute and colorful engagement session with Lisa and Jared. Wisteria and Azaleas provided the perfect backdrop as we strolled Downtown Charleston.
We met Lisa and Jared through our neighbors Jenny and Dylan. We also recently did an engagement session for them. Being a good fit for our bride and groom to be’s is at the top of our priorities. It’s important for our personalities to jive for the sessions to be fun, and memorable. One of our favorite types of couples are ones that come to us after we have served someone they know because more than likely if we got along with their friend, we will probably get along with them. 🙂
Lisa and Jared met Spring of Freshman year at Bloomsburg University, PA in a Special Education Class. It’s funny how fate works. Lisa and Jared were assigned to the same group for a project and have been working together ever since. Jared was originally undeclared. After attending a class with Lisa once, he decided he too would venture into Special Education with hopes of working on many more group projects with Lisa. From Sophmore year on, Lisa and Jared have kept the cuteness going. They had a stent of long distance time until Jared followed the girl of his dreams to Charleston, SC.
Since College, Lisa and Jared shared a lot of firsts together. Their first apartment, their first jobs and now their first home! Jared decided it was time for Lisa to be the last after 8 years of sharing a lot of firsts together. Jared popped the question on Christmas day 2018 with the help of Lisa’s 20-year-old kitty Cat “Cookie.” One thing I’ve learned dating Valarie, is the way to a girls heart, is probably her furry companion.
Lisa and Jared are tying the knot on board The Carolina Girl Yacht in May 2020. Their cute and colorful engagement days will be spent lounging, surfing and soaking up Charleston’s beautiful sunshine. Lisa and Jared! We had an absolute blast walking around Charleston with you guys and cannot wait to see all the exciting times you guys will be sharing over the next few years!
