Arkansas Engagement: Shelbi Raysor of Lonoke & Jordan Andrews of Pocahontas
Shelbi Raysor of Lonoke and Jordan Andrews of Pocahontas will exchange vows January 3, 2015, at the Skaggs Church of Christ in Pocahontas, Ark.
We love the laid-back feel of this session by Lela&Lyla's Jessica Barksdale, as well as the story of how this couple came together.
Jordan spotted Shelbi her freshmen year of college at Arkansas State University. After investigating, he asked one of his fraternity brothers and Shelbi's friend to invite her to a bonfire that night. When Shelbi jumped in her friend's truck, Jordan was sitting in the middle seat with a grin she'll never forget. She went from a freshmen to a junior, and Jordan from a senior to a D1 Dental Student at University of Tennessee in Memphis, all while being attached at the hip.
It didn't take long for Jordan to realize that Memphis just wasn't as fun without Shelbi right by his side. He spent hours at Sissy's Log Cabin before planning a romantic night in Dallas for the proposal. His plans quickly changed when their Dallas trip was canceled due to Shelbi's sick Pepa (who is strong as an ox now) .
Suddenly, that ring started to "burn a hole in his pocket." He proposed as the sun set on the Mississippi River across from their future home. A true southern proposal this down-to-Earth couple couldn't have planned out more perfectly.
