Is it too early for a Cherry Blossom engagement feature? I think not! I am SO ready for some warmer temps and this is totally getting me in the mood. Plus, Jess & Kim are also huge How I Met Your Mother Fans (me too!) so that iconic yellow umbrella made an appearance in their adorable engagement pictures at the Jefferson Memorial. I can’t get over how much FUN they seem to be having during the engagement pictures. It’s always so refreshing to see a couple’s personality like this, instead of just a bunch of awkwardly posed photos for engagement features. Thanks to Jordan Baker Photography for the images!
Jess & Kim emailed me their engagement AND wedding – so we’ll be back this afternoon with their awesome, personalized real wedding too!

How they met:
We met at a backyard barbecue on Memorial Day Weekend in 2011. Jess had spent a year and a half living in Zambia where she worked with a girl named Sara, who would go on to sit next to Kim at work. Meanwhile, when Jess came back to the U.S., Sara convinced her to move to D.C. When a few coworkers put together a last minute barbecue, Sara invited Jess to introduce her to some of her friends in D.C. Kim almost blew it when, in an effort to chat her up more, he asked her to be on his team for cornhole… forgetting that that means you stand on opposite sides. Luckily for us, Jess gave him a second chance.
