My engagement ring is from the Mississippi Heritage Collection at Juniker's. This is the ring that I have wanted since I saw it in Mississippi Magazine when I was about 13 years old. The MS Heritage Collection consists of jewelry that is designed after places and landmarks throughout the state of Mississippi. My ring is called the "Meadville", which is my hometown and where my family still lives. Jay said that he shopped at several different stores but that none of the others were as perfect for me. :) He did so well.
I actually began writing this post in order to display some of our awesome engagement pictures...I didn't mean for it to turn in to a whole story-telling event! So, without further ado, here are some of our AMAZING engagement pictures done by Sharon Coker Photography. (The "paint pictures" were all Sharon's idea. She told us to bring old jeans and a t-shirt...we were clueless that we were about to get to have a paint war. It was THE most fun.)
These next are a couple of our favorites, although they are a little more scandalous! We wanted some on Jay's bike and they turned out very well:
This last one was so much fun. Anyone who knows me knows that I CANNOT JUMP. Thankfully, Sharon Coker photoshops very skillfully. Jay, on the other hand, LEAPS like a frog. This was our best one. Thank you Sharon. :)
