Kerri and Jason's sweet sunflowers and lace engagement session started near dusk at Mellon Park in Pittsburgh! Jason made Kerri laugh nonstop, and they had a perfect night in the city with Meaghan Elliott Photography.
An urban sunflowers and lace Pittsburgh engagement session
Our love story began on January 5, 2008 at The Carson City Saloon while watching the Steelers take on the Jaguars in a post-season game. We still joke that our first exchange was Jason saying, “Chest bump me!” We're not sure if that is the moment we fell in love, but we can say that is the first of many laughs we've had together over the last 5+ years. The night continued with drinking and laughing at Jimmy D's. When we decided to call it a night, Jason offered to walk me to the car and his jacket – I was blown away by how sweet he truly was! When we got to my car I offered to give him a ride back to his since we passed it on our walk, plus it gave us more time together. During the ride, he asked me my number and we talked about meeting each other out again soon. As I left Jason and made my way down Carson Street, I started to hear my phone ring – thinking it was my mom I almost didn't answer, but then I saw the number didn't have a name with it. When I answered, it was Jason asking for a date the following day. I couldn't think of saying anything but yes! The rest is history. After a fantastic day of sledding at Seven Springs and dinner at Lydia's in the Strip District, Jason popped the question at Oglebay Resort's Festival of Lights on December 30, 2012. – Kerri
