Gabbi and Jimmy’s engagement session was on the Rock Bridge Trail and Creation Falls in the Red River Gorge. These two adventurers made for a fun evening filled with lots of hiking, laughter, and love. When we arrived at the creek, the water levels were reasonably high from all of the rain, and there was a thick mist. Afterward, we raced out of the forest to an overlook on the Sky Bridge Trail, where there fog weaving in and out of the forest. It made for a romantic and fun evening getting to know Gabbi and Jimmy. We loved celebrating their engagement and hearing all about their love story.
One evening in highschool Gabbi was with her friend on the way to a bonfire. They stopped by to pick up Gabbi’s friend’s boyfriend. When they pulled up, Jimmy came out and leaned into the window. They talked for a minute and decided to invite Jimmy to the bonfire. By the end of the night, Gabbi got his number. After the bonfire, Gabbi texted Jimmy, and he invited her over to a party at his house later that week. Little did she know he had only thrown the party as a way of getting Gabbi to come over. They had fun and flirted a bunch. Jimmy managed to steal a kiss after he dropped Gabbi off at home after the party. Jimmy and Gabbi were high school sweethearts who went their separate ways in college. Five years later, they found their way back to each other, and the rest is history. Together Jimmy and Gabbi love going to concerts, traveling, camping, taking Jimmy’s motorcycle out for long rides, and any activities that include their four dogs.
Jimmy knew he wanted to spend the rest of his life with Gabbi. They attended their second year at a music festival called Electric Forest. Jimmy and Gabbi had just finished enjoying a few night time shows and exploring the forest when they headed back to camp. At camp, it was only the two of them. Gabbi made a joke that he had no magic left, and that’s when Jimmy decided to prove her wrong and pull out a ring and asked Gabbi to marry him. Gabbi sobbed like a baby and said yes. The engagement ring center stone was a Valentine’s Day gift from his late dad to his mother many years ago. After his dad’s passing, Jimmy decided to propose to Gabbi with this ring that his mom had given him. Jimmy then added the four marquis diamonds because Gabbi had always talked about how much she loved Marquis. The ring turned out perfect! We are so excited to celebrate Gabbi and Jimmy’s special day next year at Lost River Cave in Bowling Green, Kentucky. Stay tuned for their wedding day love story!
