{engagement} amy + jared

There is something so sweet about today's engagement session from {Blest Photography}. For the first 
time in P&P history we have the groom-to-be share how they met. "To summarize: when Amy and I first met on the plane down to Mexico City, she was reading my favorite book of all time, Les Misérables. More or less, what went through my mind at that point was, "In a world of Twilight and Nick Sparks, it is extremely  unusual and refreshing to see such a pretty girl reading such a stellar book." And the plane rides to and from Mexico City were the beginning of a budding friendship over the following months."

"During those months, we talked a lot about books we liked. It is rare to find someone who will admit to a love of reading, and I really enjoyed talking with Amy about books, because while we shared some favorites (like Les Mis), she also really expanded my reading palate. To be quite honest, I started borrowing books from her just so I'd have extra excuses to come see her at her apartment in Boone. In fact, the day I asked her out I was returning The BFG, by Roald Dahl. (On a side note, she had just woken up from a nap when I returned the book to her place, and I judged it to be unwise to ask her out while she was only mildly coherent. I called her later.)"


"So, in a nutshell, reading and books have been and continue to be a fun and integral part of our relationship. You'll find on that website some detail about the book I made her to execute "the Proposal."  (Click HERE for more on the proposal.)"
