Jessi & James
These two are the sweetest. Possibly the sweetest couple ever. Their love story below written by Jessi will make you swoon. They got married this past summer on the. hottest. day. ever in the history of Montana. (OK, not quite, but it was hot, and they didn't bat an eye.) Pairing this beautiful first look captured by Elsa Eileen Photography, with Jessi's story will make you fall in love with this couple. We did.
Their Love Story
James and I met at the coffee shop where I work. He walked in one day and came up to the counter. I recognized him from being in the same circle of friends, but we had never actually met. When he reached the counter I was standing there to take his order and he said, "hey, I know you!" And that's how it all started, with a 16 oz. caramel frappé with an extra-shot and no whipped cream.
A year-and-a-half later on our one-year anniversary, James took me for a freezing-cold hike in the snow to a place we had been the previous summer. A place where we had fallen in love with a beautiful view of Flathead Lake (editor's note: the same place this shoot took place!). When we reached the top, sitting at the edge of the cliff was James' guitar on a blanket. We walked up to the blanket and he picked up the guitar and played me our song: "This Magic Moment." At the end of the song he had written a last verse that asked me to marry him. Of course I said "yes!" He pulled out a beautiful ring, put it on my finger, and then turned me around, and to my surprise my little brother and best friend were there taking pictures of the whole moment. That was the start of our fairytale.
