Shawna + Jacob | Paradise Falls Engagement

Here’s the Sparknotes on Jacob and Shawna: they meet in 2008, remain best friends despite many, many years of long-distance, plan a bestie vacay to Europe together, CONFESS ALL THE FEELS, land back in the states and then Jacob buys a ring 2 days later.

ERMAHGAWD. These two are just a bundle of cliche sayings.

Distance makes the heart grow fonder.

It was meant to be.

What they were looking for was right in front of them the entire time.

Marry your best friend.

And lastly, if you go on a European adventure with your best friend, you WILL come home in love and be engaged 3 months after becoming Facebook official. Wait, what?! They check all the boxes, but this whirlwind best-friend-becomes-boyfriend-becomes-fiance romance is anything but cliche. We met them at their wedding venue, Paradise Falls, where we made these two best friends make out and snug it out.

We cannot WAIT to be there as the enter this next chapter of their lives this December!
