jessie & kristen

"it's  weird to say, but I have known I was going to marry this boy from the time I was 10 years old. He was my first crush, my first boyfriend, my first kiss, and my first love. Every
childhood/teenage memory I have involves him. We may have spent time apart for a few years after high school, but we both knew that wouldn't last long. He is my soulmate." - Kristen

he is my soulmate.

The Proposal:

"We had a trip planned to California. We were staying in LA, but we were going to drive to San Francisco for a few days. Once we got to San Francisco I was exhausted so I took a nap and told him to look up places for dinner because I was going to be starving when I woke up. Little did I know he had bigger plans then dinner!

After we got ready we left and sat in traffic for what felt like an eternity! He told me to close my eyes because he had a surprise at the restaurant and didn't want me to see just yet. I didn't think much about it so I closed my eyes while we drove for a few more minutes. We pulled into what I thought was the restaurants parking lot. He then backed the car in so I couldn't see the view or where we were. 

everything was perfect.

When he opened my door and I got out of the car I immediately realized what was going on. There were pictures of us from when we were 10 in gold frames on the ground overlooking the Golden Gate Bridge. I will never forget how happy I was in this moment. Seeing Jessie's teary eyed face as he promised me forever was one of the best moments of my life. Everything was perfect." - Kristen
