Rebecca has told me that her love story with Jared is “just simple and nothing out of the ordinary,” but girl, I believe the exact opposite!  Each and every love story is special and unique.  Why?  What makes it so special?  Because it features YOU and your most favorite person in the whole world.  THIS is why I LOVE love stories…each one is unique and special in its own way because WE are all unique and special in our own way!

Rebecca and Jared met through mutual friends and their friendship grew and grew as the spent more time together.  Jared even moved out of his home state to be closer to Rebecca!  They are both are fairly new to Lancaster city (Rebecca grew up in Alaska- which is SO fun-and Jared and his family live out in Ohio-which is also fun!).  It’s so neat how that they both ended up in PA!

We all enjoyed exploring less familiar places together in Lancaster for the engagement session.  We walked around The Lancaster County Five Senses Garden for a while and then drove a few miles down the road to check out a beautiful covered bridge that crosses over a small stream tucked away in the forest.  Who knew that Lancaster was so pretty, even in the middle of winter!

Jared is so sweet and cares deeply for Rebecca.  You can see it in the way that he looks at her.  The way he holds her hand and how he gently bushes his fingers along the small of her back as they hug.  They are seriously the sweetest together!  I cannot wait to spend more time with these two as they plan their Maryland wedding together this summer.  Congrats to Jared & Rebecca!  So happy for you both as you start this new chapter in your lives!
