Jenna + Joshua
An Evening Engagement in the Historic German Village

Jenna + Joshua
An Evening Engagement in the Historic German Village

One night, Jenna was barhopping with some of her great friends! They were at Brathaus when her future fiance, Joshua, had walked in. He made his way over to Jenna, tapped her shoulder and found out she was single. After chatting for a bit, they had realized their paths had crossed earlier in life! Sooner than later, they became boyfriend and girlfriend and had their first official date at Jenna’s favorite pizza place called Pisanello’s.

A year later, Joshua had planned a weekend getaway at Hocking Hills to celebrate Valentine’s Day and his birthday. The morning they were leaving (on his birthday), one of their favorite artists, Dan + Shay, released a new single called “Glad You Exist.” As they were driving, Jenna put the song on their playlist but Joshua wasn’t singing along like he usually does…Jenna had thought maybe it was because of afternoon traffic and the fresh snowfall on the ground.

They had finally arrived at the romantic cabin in the woods which had rose petals scattered and Dan + Shay playing in the background. They slow danced, exchanged sweet lovey words, and then Joshua got down on one knee! He left Jenna SPEECHLESS (which was also the title of the song in the background). Through the happy tears, Jenna of course said yes! They finished their evening watching The Proposal and drinking a glass of champagne Jenna’s dad had bought when Joshua asked for his blessing, so sweet!

Jenna + Joshua are the sweetest ever and I am beyond ecstatic for their August wedding at the beautiful Crimson Lane! These two are full of so much love for one another and I already know their day will bring all the tears.
