Courtney + Jason: Ranch Engagement

Oooooh goodie!!! I have been soooo excited about posting this engagement session I could hardly stand it! Lucky for me, there’s a blizzard in Lubbock so I am cooped up indoors and I couldn’t be happier! I’ve been cuddled up on the couch all day with my precious puppies watching the snow come down and working on this adorable couple! Yes, it’s a perfect day in the BJP world! 🙂 Courtney contacted me by way of my amazing assistant, and on a trip to Dallas we met for coffee. I fell in love with her immediately, and she just seemed like someone I could totally be friends with! Courtney has impeccable taste in fashion, wedding ideas, and of course, in her choice of men! Jason is pretty great as well! Total gentleman! The couple met July 4th, 2009 at the Reeder’s lakehouse in Granbury, Texas. Jason’s brother and sister in law had been trying to find the perfect girl for Jason when they realized one of their good friends, Courtney, might be the one. They invited Courtney to the lake that weekend and introduced her to Jason. Little did Courtney know she was meeting her future husband. They hit it off at the lake and Jason asked her out on a date the following week. After three and a half years of dating is was obvious to Jason that Courtney was the one! SPOILER ALERT——> AMAZING MELT YOUR HEART PROPOSAL STORY COMING UP!!! On December 24, 2012, Jason asked Courtney to marry him in her home state of Oklahoma. Courtney had left December 21st to go stay at her mom’s in Yukon, Oklahoma for Christmas. Jason told Courtney he was staying in Texas to have Christmas with his family. When Courtney left on Friday Jason quickly began planning the whole engagement for Christmas Eve. With the help of both of their families it all came together in the matter of 2 days. On the morning of Christmas Eve, Courtney’s step-dad woke her up with video camera in hand and handed her an envelope. Inside was a letter from Jason telling her to get ready and that her driver would be picking her up at 7:45 to go to her first surprise. Courtney nervously got ready not knowing what was about to happen. At 7:45 a limo pulled up at the house and picked her up. They went down the street and pulled into Jimmy’s Egg (the only breakfast restaurant in Yukon) where Courtney’s parents were waiting to have breakfast with her. After breakfast Courtney’s mom handed her another letter and it said for her to go get coffee with her grandparents, brother and sister. The limo driver took her to Starbucks where they were all waiting to surprise her. They all enjoyed coffee together and Courtney’s grandma handed her another envelope. Inside it said to go enjoy a day on the town with Casie. Courtney was so excited to know Casie had driven up from Texas to hang out! Casie and Courtney went to get their nails done and enjoyed their time together. After leaving the nail salon they drove down the street to La Baguette Bakery & Deli where Jason’s mom Linda, Courtney’s stepmom, sister, grandma, and aunt were all waiting to have lunch together. After a wonderful lunch Linda gave Courtney another card from Jason that said to go shopping and find a perfect dress for her final stop. The girls went shopping, and found Courtney a beautiful dress. Just as they finished the limo pulled up outside outside and Courtney’s dad was waiting inside. Courtney and her dad rode together to the Myriad Gardens in downtown Oklahoma City, and just before getting out of the limo, he presented her with one last envelope. This envelope wasn’t a destination, but rather a very sweet letter from her dad. Courtney’s dad then led her through the gardens and up the stairs to a skywalk where Jason was was waiting. Jason proposed to Courtney by a beautiful waterfall and it was perfect! Their families hosted a party afterwards to celebrate with the newly engaged couple . Courtney and Jason then went off to look at Christmas lights and enjoy the rest of their evening! Courtney and Jason will be getting married May 18th at the Fort Worth Botanical Gardens and I am so thankful and honored to get to work with them! Please enjoy Courtney and Jason’s amazing ranch engagement! xoxo!
