Happy Monday! We’re kicking off our first engagement post of the year with this gorgeous Winsconsin engagement session by Magdalene Photography of NFL player Chris Banjo and his fiance Jasmine. Chris and Jasmine had a few different locations (The Villa Terrace Art Museum and the The Wisconsin Club) for their shoot, each more elegant and glamorous than the next. As we share our favorite shots, enjoy a little bit about their love story:
“He first told me he was going to Miami for Memorial Day weekend with some of his teammates” is not your common leading line to a romantic proposal story. But things are different for Jasmine and Chris, especially since this handsome future groom is a professional football player for the Green Bay Packers. One Saturday morning, Chris called and asked if Jasmine would go to the mailbox because he had a past due bill, but before she could get to there, Jasmine was greeted with a rose and a card that had instructions for a scavenger hunt around Dallas.
From each significant place to significant place in their relationship, she ended up at a lake where Chris awaited with a nice speech and a ring box. As Jasmine opened the box, she saw a necklace. “A promise necklace”, Chris said. But any girl who sees a ring box and then a necklace is not exactly pleased!
The next day after dropping off Chris at the airport, Jasmine attended dinner with some friends to tell them the whole necklace box story. Meanwhile unbeknownst to her, the airport scene was a fake setup! Chris’ cousin had picked him at the airport as soon as Jasmine “dropped him off.” And as dinner started, a certain smiling mischievous boyfriend came into the restaurant to the tune of a love song being played by the venue’s live musicians. And you guessed it. The real proposal happened, and it’s a story that will definitely be told for years to come.
These pictures are absolutely breathtaking and we wish Chris and Jasmine a lifetime of happiness and sweet surprises together.
