OUR FIRST DATE
Jackie & Jon met in a non-traditional but ever so common way... on an online dating website. After chatting for about a week Jackie was ready meet this awesome man in person! Jon was a little more hesitant but he thankfully agreed and set up a date! The first date was on May 10, 2013 at HUB Brewery in Portland OR. Jon had just crashed his friends motorcycle and Jackie just got her nails done in a horrible bright orange color. When walking into the brewery Jon flashed his road rash and Jackie flashed her bright nails to identify each other. The date was such a hit they kept it going to the C-Bar and ended up at the dock at Oaks Park where they shared their first kiss! (& selfie together!)
The proposal happened on February 12, 2017 on the dock at Oaks Park... where the first kiss on the first date took place! Jon told Jackie they were going on a bike ride down the Springwater Corridor. Jackie was asking what they were going to do on Valentine's Day (putting her feelers out for signs a proposal may or may not be coming) and Jon said he had no clue... asked what she wanted to do. Jackie recommended they re-live their first date, which ended up fitting perfectly into Jon's proposal plan. He said "Speaking of our first date... you want to go see our dock?" Jackie happily agreed and they rode down the path to the waterfront. Walking down the dock Jackie was still wearing her helmet. Thankfully Jon mentioned he was glad she was all about safety because it's so dangerous walking on docks these days! So Jackie took her helmet off! At the end of the dock Jackie spotted a drone and was pointing it out to Jon's when he grabbed the ring and got down on one knee! The whole thing was caught on camera (Jeff was recording the whole thing on his drone)and there was family hiding in the bushes... it was perfect!
Jackie & Jon were and absolute joy to work with same goes for their friends and family.
Thank you for giving me the honor of capturing your beautiful memories. I am forever grateful to have met the MARVITZ!
