Jessica & Rassie | Blacksburg Engagement Photography

What a fun session!

After all of the snow and the cold weather it was so great to get outside on a beautiful day with a beautiful couple! I met up with Jessica and Rassie on a gorgeous Saturday afternoon at Heritage Park in Blacksburg. I have known Jessica and her family for years. Her sister, Kendra, was a Skyryder Bride a few years ago! What a great family Rassie is joining!

Jessica was so excited to tell me about her upcoming wedding. She and Rassie met at the sporting goods store he owns in Wytheville, Virginia. They struck up a conversation that led into more conversations and after a few weeks they were dating! Now it is 3 1/2 years later and they are getting married! They have had some life hurdles but that has only brought them closer. Jessica told me, “Rassie and I have been through so much in the past three and a half years that most people don’t go through in a lifetime. Cassie has battled kidney problems and kidney transplants most of his life. One the past several years he has spent months at at time at Duke University receiving treatments. This has only brought us closer and so in love. God could not have chosen a better man. I love him so much and I can’t wait to begin our future together.”

Is that not the sweetest thing you have ever heard?

Jessica told me that Rassie and she were getting their Christmas pictures taken and right in the middle of it Rassie proposed!!! I bet she couldn’t contain her excitement!

Jessica and Rassie are getting married at the Lovewell Lodge on June 11, 2016. I couldn’t be more excited for them both!

Now for the photos!!!
