Wedding Wednesdays: Part II - Kristen and Jonathan's Clemson Love Story

I am more than excited to share with you these amazing photos of engaged Clemson alums Kristen and Jonathan. Kristen graduated from Clemson in 2007 with a BA in Elementary Education and Jonathan graduated in 2009 with a BS in Agriculture Education and a minor in Animal & Veterinarian Science and is currently working on his Masters.

Kristen and Jonathan actually met after Kristen had already graduated... They met at Clemson's social landmark, Tiger Town Tavern. They were introduced through a mutual friend. The friend had known Jonathan since his freshman year and introduced him to Kristen who says, "It definitely wasn't love at first sight, but after running into each other several more times, tailgating together at Clemson baseball games, and hanging out - it all changed!"

The Proposal!
After about a year and a half of dating, the two took a trip to one of Kristen's favorite places - Disney World! On the second day of their five day trip, they went to the Magic Kingdom and stayed late at the park for the fireworks. About half way through the fireworks show, Jonathan got down on one knee and proposed! Kristen says it was "...perfect: Disney World, fireworks, and a beautiful ring!" Kudos to Jonathan! How sweet and romantic!

Kristen and Jonathan will be married next weekend in Kristen's hometown of Mt. Pleasant, South Carolina.

The couple holds Clemson very near and dear to them - Kristen has lived in the area the past 7 years and Jonathan grew up and lives in the area...plus it's where they first met, so they couldn't imagine doing their engagement shoot anywhere else.

Richard Ellis of Richard Ellis Photography has generously shared Kristen and Jonathan's Clemson engagement photo shoot with us! I love how they were able to capture the love these two have for each other. And they look like they were having so much fun - Kristen is laughing in almost every photo! I also love how the notable Clemson landmarks are the subtle background of each photo with Kristen and Jonathan being the main subject. You can view this session and more on Richard Ellis's blog - they are based out of Charleston, but will travel anywhere!

So now that you know the back story...fall in love with the photos!

So...which one is your favorite?? I can't pick just one.. I love them ALL! Much love to Kristen and Jonathan for letting us share their love story...what a cute couple! We hope you enjoy your wedding next weekend and we wish you a blessed and happy marriage!

Another very special thanks to Richard Ellis Photography for the amazing photos! If you visit their blog, block off the rest of your day...you'll be spending the rest of the afternoon admiring all of their beautiful photo sessions!
