Engaged: Elicka and Jon
categories: Engagement

Elicka and Jon’s engagement session is the perfect combination of sweet and sexy- you’ll love the multiple locations, fun vibe and vibrant colors. Oh,and there’s a proposal story for the books…

How did you meet?

We met on a Caribbean cruise in 2009. I was on the cruise with 60 friends as part of my senior year college spring break and Elicka was on the cruise with her mother as a college graduation gift. To say that meeting my future wife on this cruise was the last thing I expected is an understatement. I guess the saying is true that you find love when you’re not looking for it.

Ideal date night: Since I work for the airlines, we’ve been blessed with free flights. This is something we’ve been able to take advantage of by flying to some great places. On some weekends, we’ve taken quick 1-2 day spontaneous trips to different cities in the U.S. just to explore. So I’d say my ideal date night would be exploring a new city with her.

An elaborate proposal plan eventually led Elicka and Jon to Camelback Mountain where Jon had several friends on the trail give Elicka long-stemmed roses tagged with loving words. He ended up getting down on one knee and proposing, Elicka said yes, and the proposal date continued. Jon made plans for them to go to their favorite lunch spot, get a vase for the roses at an art festival, paint together at the Brush Bar, take a limo ride to the Orpheum Theater complete with a show, and enjoy dinner at their favorite restaurant, Top of the Rock. Phew! Jon documented it all so they could share it with their families (see it here if you need some sweet ideas!).

Favorite things:

Jon: The way she makes me feel when I am around her. I’m able to be 100% myself, and everything just feels right. We are able to do the absolutely most boring thing together and make it a blast. I couldn’t think of a better person to spend the rest of my life with. She is my best friend and soul mate.

Elicka: Jon makes me laugh constantly but I’d have to say my favorite thing about him is his heart. He is very kind, thoughtful, and he truly cares about the welfare of others. He teaches English to refugees and is a member of StreetLightUSA’s Social Media board.

Jon grew up a die-hard Steelers fan and Elicka was a Cardinals cheerleader so they made sure to get  a few fun shots showing their love of the game:
