Each week I look forward to sharing another amazing proposal, engagement, wedding, or anniversary story. The submissions we are receiving each week have blown us away, all the different creative styles and emotional stories captured. We found Alyssa Alyssa McGuire Photography on Instagram and were immediately drawn into each of her images. The angles, emotions, and sincerity to each photograph was very unique. Trust me, you’ll be happy we shared Alyssa McGuire, a photographer based in Omaha Nebraska. Thank you for sharing a lovely engagement story for Marriage monday!
Shelby & Jarod’s Story: “Jarod and I graduated from the same high school. Jarod graduated a few years before me so I knew of him but he didn’t know me. I remember him being a great athlete and a “stud” in the hallways. His parents and mine were good friends so I had been around them more than him at the time. I remember once in the high school hallway asking God if he could get him to look my way but I figured it was a long shot. Years went by and the summer we met I turned 20 and he had just turned 24. I had finally decided I wanted a more serious relationship. On my way camping, my best friend told me he was bringing his cousin, Jarod Dendinger. I was immediately thrilled but once again figured it was a long shot that he’d see as more than his cousin’s friend. Little did I know God had another plan for me. I believe God has three answers for everything, yes, no, and not yet just wait. I believe meeting Jarod was one of those “not yet just wait” responses from when I was younger. On God’s time, Jarod and I were supposed to meet that weekend and shortly after, become the love of my life.”
