Kasandra and Jordan’s engagement session was at Shaker Village in Harrodsburg, Kentucky. It was a chilly but beautiful fall day. The sun was shining, and the colors on the trees were stunning. Jordan and Kasandra snuggled up and celebrated their engagement. We had so much fun exploring the beautiful Shaker Village, all while getting to know Kasandra and Jordan. We loved seeing just how perfect they are for each other and hearing all about their love story.
Kasandra and Jordan met while attending the University of Alabama. They had a class in the same building. Jordan noticed Kasandra randomly in the hallway one day. He decided that he had to meet her because he thought she was cute and loved her Totoro backpack. Jordan thought he lost his chance after not seeing Kasandra for a month. One day he finally saw her again and had to run across campus for them to finally meet. Kasandra thought it was very sweet and was excited to get to know Jordan. Kasandra invited Jordan to watch the ducks on campus. Right away, they hit it off. For their first date, they went to the Birmingham Zoo. There was a lot of construction happening, but Kasandra and Jordan still had a blast together. They got to feed the birds, and a little lorikeet tried to nest in Kasandra’s hair. Kasandra and Jordan ended the night at their favorite restaurant, Whataburger, where Kasandra almost fell flat on her face. Jordan even managed to help catch her before she fell. Together they love hanging around home with their three cats, watching TV, and playing games. Kasandra and Jordan also love all things Disney and got into pin trading when they went to Disney World together. Other than that, they enjoy doing puzzles, cooking together, and going to any fun shows, musicals, and ballets that come to town.
Jordan knew he wanted to spend the rest of his life with Kasandra. They had a fun day planned in Birmingham that ended up being a bit of a mess. Jordan was going to surprise Kasandra and take her to the botanical gardens. Kasandra had to pick up her car from getting repaired. Unfortunately, the gardens closed while they were still at the garage. They turned the night around by going ice skating at the park in downtown Birmingham. Afterward, Jordan tried to get Kasanadra to go to Vulcan, a spot that overlooks the entire city, to look at the Christmas lights. Kasandra was uncooperative and hungry. Finally, Jordan was able to drag her to a beautiful spot in the park and propose. Kasandra was so surprised and excited. The best part was that Jordan proposed with a ring pop. He had always regretted not asking Kasandra out by proposing with a fake ring pop. Afterward, they went ring shopping and picked out the perfect engagement ring for both Kasandra and Jordan.
