Jackie & Jeremy were spectacularly engaged in Laguna Beach, CA on 10/5/2017. There was wine, there were singing gondoliers, there was kissing under bridges, and secret family pictures from a distance.
They met in 2013 when Jackie was just beginning her doctoral degree, and Jeremy was just getting acquainted to the city of Seattle. As they were beginning to realize this was more than friendship, so began the silly romantic passing of poems and love notes:
I’ve been looking for you.
Peering into art stained alleyways
And glass houses
Because I knew you lived in Contrasts.
Embedded in sidewalk cracks and
Skyscrapers, you became a symbol For
Little did I know you had been
Sitting just across from me for
Ages. Noticing your eyes but,
Afraid to see.
Soon, rooms themselves disappeared, allowing
Nothing more to enter than Our
Conversation. Laughter. Smiles.
