Krysta and Jordyn meet in high school in Krysta's freshman year and Jordyn's Junior Year, on the soccer field! To celebrate their love the couple chose, Lindsay Dawn Photography, to capture this fun filled colorful engagement session at the North Coast Harbor - Voinovich Bicentennial Park. We caught up with them below to hear more about their love story.
What makes your relationship special? Tell us some things that you both value in your time together. (example: pushing each other to new limits, love to travel, huge comic book fans, foodies, etc.) What makes your relationship unique? Our relationship is so special because since day one we just got each other. We know what each other is thinking or going to say. We are COMPLETELY opposite of each other and I think that’s what pulls us even closer. I mean they say opposites attract right! We both value the trust we have in one another. I know any time that Jo is around I’m safe. We are constantly pushing each other to our limits rather it be in new hobby’s we pick up or grad school or a new recipe we are trying for dinner. The support we have for each other is amazing.
How did you know your partner was the one? When did you first know this in your relationship? (these may often be the same moment, but aren’t always) It took me a long time to take down walls and completely let Jo in, but once I did and she didn’t look at me any different and was there to be my rock I knew she was who I wanted forever. When She left for college I felt like half of me was missing. We talked every day as much as we could but it was hard some times with me being a Junior in high school and being in soccer And other extra curricular activities and Jo being in college being in college and having crazy class times, but somehow we just made it work. We have always made time for one another regardless of what is going on. Once I graduated from high school I moved out to Toledo where Jo was attending school so we could start our adult life together, and here we are, 8.5 years later and she still makes me feel like I’m on top of world every day.
Give us all the details about the proposal. How and where did it happen? Was it a surprise? What was the planning process? Jo brought my engagement ring in February 2018 but did not propose till May 2018. She had it all planned out with my best friend Connie, That had moved to Wisconsin and I have not seen any while. So we made the eight hour car ride with two dogs in the car (which was a lot of fun NOT) and I had no idea where we were going. After sitting in the car for five hours, while texting Connie while she was acting like she had no clue where we were going, I saw a sign for Wisconsin, and immediately knew we were going to see Connie and I thought that was my big surprise! Well I was wrong! We went to this beautiful state park to go on a nice walk and catch up on pictures because Connie told me she got a new Lens for her camera (Which was not true) and once we got to this beautiful area where the sun was just shining so perfectly, I turned around a Jo was down on one knee holding this BEAUTIFUL ring, asking me to forever be her wife. With tears running down my face, completely shocked I SAID YES! Jo was planning this for some time. She just wanted it to be perfect and it was! Definitely a time in my life I will NEVER forget!
We’re all about the bling… Tell us all about that ring! A vintage, double halo, princess cut
Are you excited to start planning your wedding day? Do you have any ideas in mind yet? I was sooooo excited to start planning. This is a moment that I have always dreamed of since I was a little girl. So now that I had the perfect person to spend my life with I couldn’t wait to start planing my dream wedding! We are having a fall, rustic wedding while being surrounded by our friends and family.
