A Ballard Wandering Engagement

"If you look for it, I've got a sneaky feeling you'll find that love is actually all around." - Love Actually

I knew I was going to like Jade + Jordan from the minute I heard their proposal story...  

 In the glow of college application fees, overlooking the view of the water from our window, we decided together that, since the love was already there, the rest was just paperwork.

Can I just say that Jade is UBER talented?! The dress she was wearing? Yeah. She made it. Out of old neck ties. WHAT?! I mean... WHAT? I couldn't be more impressed. Really. Not only that, but she works in a flower warehouse. Gah. I knew we were gonna be friends.

And Jake. Jake's that kind of super cool electrical engineer who has a contact chip built into his hand. Yes. I couldn't make this up. The idea is, you put your phone next to his hand, and his contact information will be automatically saved in his phone. He's only the coolest. Only.

Now this was a couple who I could see getting drinks with later, and it turns out, we DID! It was pretty chilly around Ballard, so after we hit a few pretty places, we stumbled into Lock and Keel for a drink (of hot coffee). It was of course, the diviest dive bar you've ever seen, but Jade + Jake took it in stride.

Dear Jade + Jake, 

You're kinda my favorite, you know that. Right?
