THE START OF SOMETHING BEAUTIFUL

Kudos to the matchmakers, Jodi and Amber, for making the love connection happen!

Jelisa's mom, Jodi, attended a birthday party for her coworker, and Jake's older sister, Amber.

Jake decided to show up last minute, much to his good fortune. Jodi must have spotted the match from a mile away. She made up an excuse to take a picture of Jake with the birthday girl, so that she could send it to Jelisa, adding, "He's 23... and buff!"

Who would have known that 547 days later, Jake would be down on one knee asking Jelisa to spend the rest of their lives together.

 

THE PROPOSAL

Unbeknownst to her, Jake had already met with Jelisa's parents, brothers, and grandparents to get their blessing. He had prearranged a go code for her family to take their places to videotape and catch the moment on camera.

His cue, "Let's take the puppies outside before dinner" - let everyone know that it was time.

Jake and Jelisa went out to the backyard with the dogs, and Jake began one of his shmoozing spiels, reminiscing on the past year and a half that they'd shared. He asked if Jelisa remembered when they had just recently started dating, and Jake told her that he was going to marry her one day. As his heart was pounding out of his chest, he said, "Well the time has come," and got down on his knee to ask the most important question of his life. He pulled out the gorgeous Neil Lane double halo and asked, "Jelisa Pretz, will you marry me?" Her response... "OH MY GOD... YES!"
