Wild Acres Villa Engagement
Jessica and Kyle met me Wild Acres Villa, a hidden gem in the backwoods of Paisley, Florida, for their beautiful engagement. Jessica had been researching fun little spots that had both green backdrop filled with lush tropical foliage, along with a historic building for a little pop of architecture.
It is crazy to think back, but Jessica and Kyle have known one another for almost ten years. Having met through their mutual friend Tom back in 2008, the two grew up in the same circle of friends, in the same neighborhood, and enjoyed the same activities from eating pizza to playing video games after school.
High school sweethearts, their friendship turned to love when in 2011 Jessica was going through a tough time and Kyle was there to support her. His selflessness and kindness outpoured for Jessica and she realized for the first time that the love of her life had been in front of her this whole time. However, it took a little bit before their feelings came to the surface. As Jessica reminisces, “one night during a car ride together, the topic of relationship came up. We both admitted how we felt for each other and it was like no other feeling! Just an overwhelming sensation of happiness.”
Of course for Jessica, it was Kyle’s selflessness and kindness that drew her in and established her love for Kyle. For Kyle, it is the way Jessica makes him feel comfortable and how he enjoys having her by his side every day. She is truly his best friend.
Having dated for four years, Kyle knew that 2015 was going to be the year he proposed to Jessica. Both working in the food industry at the time, Valentine’s day would not be an option, however the day after would. Kyle surprised Jessica with a date to the Melting Pot in Longwood, Florida and asked her to wear the very nice dress he had given her for Christmas.
Walking into dinner, Jessica was utterly surprised to find rose petals and lit candles on their table. A bottle of champagne was brought out to celebrate followed by the most delicious three-course meal. Towards dessert, Kyle became very quiet and Jessica could tell he was a little nervous. Making his way up and around the table to Jessica’s side of the booth, Kyle kneeled down and asked for Jessica to marry him. The entire restaurant began clapping and cheering as Jessica said “yes!” Needless to say it was a very special and memorable experience.
Looking forward to our team capture these two tie the knot this October!
