On the second date is when Jennie became smitten! Read the rest below!
From the Photographer:
Jennie & Wade met on match.com… their first date was grabbing a drink and snack at Alivia’s bistro in downtown Durham. Wade was completely enamored after Jennie ordered a Guinness and bacon cheese fries, and Jennie’s mother convinced her to give him a second date after she thought he was too shy… but after the second date, he brought a little stuffed dog for her because he remembered how she said she missed the dog she left with her mother and the rest was history. After about 8 months of dating, Wade learned he would have to deploy to Bahrain for about a year’s worth of training and time in country, and they started planning their future relationship with half a world in between them. Wade was scheduled to depart on Easter Sunday to his training in El Paso, before flying to Bahrain, and took her father for coffee that morning to ask for his blessing to propose. He took Jennie to the location of their second date, and sitting next to a fountain, she started to cry, thinking about how much she would miss him. He wrapped his arm around her and told her everything would be okay, because he had talked to her father that morning and gotten his permission and blessing to ask her to be his wife, and pulled a ring out of his pocket.”
