They had technically “known” each other for a while. They went to the same small high school but were in different graduation classes, and then they went off to study at different colleges. She was to become a special education teacher and he was to become an electrician.
Completely different path.
Completely different states.
But somehow…it would all end up happening just at the right time.
Justine graduated college and came home. She had a friend that kept asking her to be a “sub” for the a volleyball league that she was a part of. She finally said yes once…and well it was a good thing she did! It was there, while she was subbing in a volleyball game that Sam first laid eyes on her! Her subbing turned into more regular playing and Sam knew with every time that he wanted to ask her out. But he kept chickening out. 🙂 So instead, he Facebook messaged her his date request.
He pressed the send button and waited. Little did he know that she was busy tutoring some students and wouldn’t see the message for quite awhile. So after four LONG hours of waiting…Sam finally received the message back from Justine. They arranged to go out for coffee. Only this time, he didn’t leave the first coffee date without asking her out again! He wasn’t going to lose the opportunity this time (or chicken out!)
The rest as they say…is history. After taking her for a hike to enjoy the outdoors, he had a picnic waiting for them. Out in the middle of nowhere (or what seemed like nowhere!), they had a picnic and the label on the wine bottle asked her that very important question!
He got on one knee and of course….she said YES!!!
Justine & Sam are so good together. And you can just feel the love being around them! I think you all may agree after you see this preview of their engagement session! Enjoy! 🙂
Love these pictures and this girlie 🙂
