Washington Engagement {Jo + Bobby}

Jo and Bobby’s Washington engagement session is all about hugs, kisses and holding hands.

The affectionate couple met at work. Bobby explains, “Jo and I actually met 6 years ago when we both worked at the Best Western Lakeway Inn – Jo in the Sales & Marketing Office, and I at the front desk.

We worked together for about 6 months (thinking she was cute I tended to pop into the sales office quite often) before Jo took her job at Whatcom Community College. About 2 years later, I got a job at WCC in the HR department and we re-connected. Quickly we became friends again and would hang out often. Eventually I took her out on our first date to The Lion King in Seattle. We’ve been together for almost 3 years now.”

The proposal took place at Biltmore, which was Jo’s dream proposal location. Jo recalls, “Without my knowledge, Bobby had been planning the proposal for months! Ever since we booked our flights to North Carolina, I kept mentioning going to Biltmore, he decided that’s where he was going to propose. We spent the day taking a tour of the house, shopping, and walking the grounds with my parents before the candlelight tour in the evening.

That evening, we went through the mansion when all of the Christmas trees and fireplaces were lit, Christmas decorations were up, and carolers sang in the greenhouse atrium. Afterward, my parents took the shuttle back to the car and we took another walk around the lawn under the amazing 60-foot Christmas tree. I kept trying to move Bobby along because I wanted pictures of the tree with the house at the end of the lawn, but he took his sweet time looking at the lights and the trees (he told me later he was waiting for a family to leave). I was giving him a little bit of a hard time when he hugged me and dropped to one knee. He didn’t know it, but I had told my girlfriends if I had a dream spot for him to propose, it would be at Biltmore.”
