We are so very excited to announce the winner of a free Bridal Photoshoot from the Premier Bridal Show. Those who stopped by our booth and signed our guestbook were entered into a drawing and today we get to tell everyone who the lucky winner is.

The winner was picked at random and the winner is………

Jamie King!!

We have been talking with Jamie and we are all looking forward to her photoshoot. I wanted to share more about her and her fiancé and she was kind enough to answer my questions. I never get tired of hearing stories of how people meet, fall in love, and get married. I guess I’m in the right business because as I read Jamie’s answers I got all excited. So here’s another great love story that we get to share to the world.

What is your fiancé’s name?
Daniel Brennan

When/how did you meet?
We met in college (UTC) in 2004

How long did you date?
We started dating in January 2005 when he invited me to his fraternity formal event. We have been dating a little over five years now.

Anything special you’d like to share about dating him?
We were both pretty young when we started dating and we have had the opportunity to really grow up together. We are best friends and we share everything together, including our love for the outdoors, camping, hiking, and our beautiful German Shepherd, Zeus.

When/how did you get engaged?
We got engaged during Christmas. But, there was a mix-up with the jeweler and my ring did not come in on time. He wouldn’t tell me what he was getting me, but I knew it must have been something pretty big because he was so worried about it. So, on the 28 of December, he took me out to dinner and then asked me to marry him!

Were you surprised?
I sort-of knew it was coming (he’s not very good at keeping a secret from me!) And I picked out the type of ring I wanted already.

What is your ring like?
I wanted something different, so my ring is actually a square cut amethyst surrounded by diamonds.

Any details of your wedding plans that you would like to share?
We have decided to have an outdoor ceremony at Fall Creek Falls State Park, and because it is so hot in the summer time, we have pushed our wedding date back to October.  The leaves will be beautiful and the weather will be perfect for an outdoor ceremony.

We are meeting again with Jamie later this week to find a time for the shoot and we look forward to talking to her and taking fabulous bridal photos.

If you are planning a wedding and would like the opportunity for free bridal photos we are doing the drawing again at the Formal Affair bridal show on February 21st.  Be sure to come by our booth and sign our guest book!!
