Country Engagement

Mikaela and Jonathan will have more than a ten-year friendship by the time they tie the knot next year—which I think is always an incredible foundation for a strong marriage.

The couple had a chance encounter at a high school football game in 2011. But it wasn’t exactly love at first sight.

Almost exactly nine years—9 years and 5 days to be exact—Jonathan proposed to Mikaela over a glass of champagne. It came as a complete surprise because Mikaela was actually treating Jonathan to his birthday dinner. She was totally unaware that the spotlight would end up being on her for the night.

“He pulled a proposal that was a 100% shock.”

Mikaela & Jonathan's Country Engagement Session

After their December 2021 wedding in downtown San Antonio, Mikaela and Jonathan plan to move to Dallas. Mikaela wants to use her mechanical engineer degree so that they can design and build their very own barndominum. They are super excited because they plan on engineering a lot of cool, custom stuff for the house. In addition to their future 9-to-5’s in Dallas, they also plan on becoming entrepreneurs and starting a side hustle.

Spending time together means watching a lot of movies & TV shows, hanging out with family, working on cars, date nights, and watching sports—which is mostly initiated by Mikaela. They enjoy museums and pretty much anything that challenges their minds! They both enjoy science and politics as well. They constantly challenge each other to be better people.
