A few weeks ago I had the amazing opportunity to model for a boho inspired floral bridal photo shoot. It was such a fun day and brought me back to my (very fast) days as a soon-to-be bride! Many of you don’t know the story of how my husband and I got together so I’ll sum it up! Austin and I met our freshman year of high school. We dated for 3 weeks in 9th grade but I promptly broke up with him when he asked me to kiss him. I’d never kissed anyone before so I was too scared and broke up with him…well I had my friend break up with him for me, SO terrible I know but I was young! Anyway we remained friends through high school and each year had one or two classes together where we were class buddies. After High School, Austin went off to ORU for school and I went to OSU. We didn’t really keep it touch much through college other than a few texts or run-ins here or there. I never thought anything about it. After finishing my degree in three years (one year less than Austin, and I still let him know I’m smarter than him 😉 I moved to Tulsa for a management position at Dillard’s while Austin was entering into his senior year at ORU. One day, our moms saw each other at the gym when my mom mentioned I had just moved to Tulsa. Later that week, Austin’s mom mentioned to Austin that I was in town and he should ask me to coffee. Being a respectful son, and wanting to honor his mother, he asked me out to coffee. Sometimes moms just know things I guess 😉
We met up a few days later at a local coffee shop (Shades of Brown if you’re familiar with Tulsa). I didn’t know whether this was a date or a friend thing, since I hadn’t seen Austin as anything other than friends in such a long time. He asked to pick me up but the feminist-independent woman in me suggested I’d just meet him there! I get to the coffee shop and walk right past him not noticing him, he says my name and bam! We locked eyes and after 4 hours of amazing conversation we left saying we’d do it again. I went home to my apartment that night where I had a couple friends staying over and they asked if it was a date or not to which I replied “I don’t know but I’m in love with him.” We continued hanging out as friends his senior year and made it official that spring. We were engaged that September and married in November. I married my best friend.
But back to this great photo shoot I was able to be a part of! If you’re getting married soon check out www.JessicaLynnTucker.com and her Instagram, as she is amazingly talented! She was such a joy to work with!
