Engaged: Janelle and Brett

Oh man do we love this couple! You got a sneak at their design plan already but here is a good look at their adorable faces!! Holy cuteness am I right!?! Great work as always by Benfield Photography.

How did the two of you meet?
Brett and I met at Sams Club, where we both worked in January of 2011. It was nice to get to know each other by working together before we began dating.

Tell us about one of your favorite dates!
Janelle- Brett surprised me on Valentine ’s Day with 3 dozen roses and a night out. I didn’t know where we were going, but I knew I was supposed to get dressed up. Half of the fun was the element of surprise! We went to Touch for dinner which was wonderful because neither of us had ever been. We loved it so much we are using Touch to cater the wedding and rehearsal dinner!

Brett- Janelle surprised me for my birthday with Royals tickets. It was fun for us to explore Kansas City together. We enjoyed shopping at the plaza and eating good food. Kansas City is now one of our favorite places to go.

When did you know it was the real thing?
Janelle- When Brett took me to meet his family after a month of dating. That showed me that he already cared about me as much as I cared about him. I just remember instantly feeling like I fit in with them and knew I would love to call them family one day.

Brett- I knew early on that it was the real thing because we both wanted the same things out of life.

Was the proposal a surprise? How did it happen?
We looked at rings and talked about marriage quite a bit so it was hard for Brett to pull off a surprise. On Friday, April 25th Brett asked if he could take me out on a date. Little did I know, he had been trying to propose for weeks but with our hectic schedules, nothing worked out.  As we were walking out of the house to head to our favorite sushi place, Brett got down on one knee and asked me to be his wife. We celebrated with a sushi dinner, just the two of us, before heading downtown to celebrate with all of our closest friends. It was a night neither of us will forget.

How do you envision your wedding day?
We envision our wedding day to be filled with love, family, friends, and centered on God.

Janelle, what are you most looking forward to on your big day?
I’m looking forward to every part of the day! I can’t wait to spend time getting ready with my very best friends. Being a daddy’s girl, I can’t wait for my father daughter dance.  I can’t wait to walk down the aisle to Brett and say my vows. And I really can’t wait for the moment I get to put on my amazing wedding dress!

Brett, what are you most looking forward to on the big day?
I’m looking forward to the actual wedding ceremony. I’m excited to say my vows and begin the rest of my life with Janelle. I’m also excited to spend the day with family and friends.
