Jenna & Ben. Gorgeous and so truly in love! We headed out for some photos of their desert engagement in Phoenix and had just the most perfect sunny day! First let me just say that Ben is from England and has the most adorable accent, and has insane hair, so how can you go wrong? But after getting to know both of these two over some orange blossom beer, I could tell they were meant for each other. Ben is so kind and considerate toward Jenna and they are both such a pleasure to be around!
I asked Ben how he proposed and he had this to say (ladies, seriously!!):
“Well, it was pretty crazy, for me at least. I’d found the perfect ring; it suited Jenna’s style perfectly. I had it set with a sapphire (in typical British tradition) I really wasn’t sure whether she’d like it or not, though. Anyway, her mom was in on the plan. Everyone was. They were such a huge help. Eventually, I asked her dad for her hand, and I got the go ahead – so on the morning of April 5th, I woke Jenna up super early, and had her ready for a day out. We drove to Dunkin’ Donuts on 19th and Deer Valley. Here we linked up with the Hot Air Balloon crew. Jenna was excited, but she had no idea what was in my pocket. We had a wonderful time up there; but all I could think about was the purpose of the trip. Little did Jenna know, her family were geared up to meet us at the landing site. They had a huge banner that I’d skillfully made out of Walmart bed sheets, a sewing machine and some spray paint. We attempted to land, but it failed. I could see everyone mobilizing rapidly on the ground, after the pilot made a quick phone call to his crewmen, and as we prepared for a second attempt, there was a moment when we drifted over a highway, and 10 metres below us, Jenna’s mom drove right under us. Luckily, Jenna didn’t see that. I kept asking the pilot questions to keep Jenna distracted, whilst apprehensively looking ahead – then, in a moment of clarity, there it was; the banner. So I pulled out my camera, set it to video and handed it to the pilot. I turned and pointed to the banner, as I reached into my pocket. She squealed, and gasped, and suddenly we were engaged.”
Ahhhh!!! Fabulous! Leave them some love and well wishes in the comments at the bottom! :)
