High School Sweethearts - Jessica + Jonathan


Do you remember your first crush? First love? 
First, can't sleep at night 'cause you can't stop thinking about them?
We all have one. 
Do you remember what it felt like? 
It's that giddy, light headed feeling. 
It's the feeling that you can't stop smiling ear to ear.
There are butterflies in your stomach, a twinkle in your eye and permanent blush on your cheeks.
Now just imagine the chance to be married to your first love.
Pretty dang sweet if you ask me.  

First love. 
As amazing and as memorable as it is -
most of the time when we grow up we move on because things change. 
We change. 
Along with our thoughts, our feelings, and sometimes our love. 

But, for some of the lucky few, it stays the same. 
Some get to grow old together. 

Meet Jessica and Jonathan.

High school sweethearts...that never really ever got a chance to become an 'old flame'.
Instead their flame seems to just get brighter - especially with the news of their upcoming wedding.

They still have that twinkle in their eyes and the giddy smiles that love can't keep at bay.  


I just love how their cheeks fit together. Like a puzzle...


All they did was smile at each other. 
Not just smiling...happy smiling.



I love the rustic feel of a barn....


Smiling eyes.
Sometimes we have a little fun for a minute...


or two...


You're lala-lovely, Jess...



A nuzzle.
I love that word. 



Two shadows on the wall...


Annnd a few silhouettes to go along with the shadows...




I can't think of anything cooler than being engaged to your high school sweetheart. 
They are the person who knew you 'way back when'. 
At 16 - When we think we know it all. And some would argue that fact. 
But in this case...I think you would have showed them.  ; ) 

Jessica and Jonathan (I know, readers - another 'J' couple!) - 
Thank you so much for being so much fun.   
I had such a great time with you both and I can't wait for the big day!

P.S.

Thanks to the Knot for bringing them my way! 
Speaking of the Knot - I have some exciting news to share with you in 2012.
