Sara and Jean are such an awesome couple, and the story of how they started their relationship is one of the most unique I have had the pleasure of learning.
They had originally met in 1998 but not long after Jean joined the Marines. It wasn't until 2007 that he returned from his service and reconnected with Sara, spending most of 2007 getting to know each other again after him being gone for so long. Going on a couple dates here and there, it was at Passions Nightclub on New Years Eve that Jean asked Sara to be his girlfriend right at the countdown; Naturally Sara said yes, with someone like Jean that isn't a difficult decision. After the ball dropped, welcoming everyone to 2008, they left the club but they weren't ready for the night to be over and took a walk not far from the nightclub. Unfortunately that area is not the most well lit, and as they were crossing the train tracks Sara had the misfortune to slip and fall, breaking her front teeth. Jean having just returned from the Marines was able to take action to help get her into the care of a doctor very quick.
Fast forward to 2016, Jean and Sara return to this fateful spot where their relationship was tempered by such a harrowing night, and at this same spot with a couple friends and family members, he had created an amazing scene for her, dropped to one knee, and asked her to marry him.
I have to tell you, I am a bit of a sucker for these kinds of stories and a bit of a romantic. For many people having to rush around Miami in the middle of the night, trying to find a dentist for someone who is in an extreme amount of pain, with not a little amount of blood either, would be the end of the relationship just as it was really starting. It is a testament to the love that these two have for each other, that 9 years after the night that will go down in infamy, through the storms that life throws at us, they are getting ready to make that leap from Fiance to Husband and Wife.
I hope you enjoy the images from their engagement session below, I cannot wait to share their amazing wedding with you soon!
