Jess and Brennan met in university in the Graphic Design program. They both remember each other from orientation, but it wasn’t love at first sight, that’s for sure. Brennan remembers Jess as a ‘snooty art bitch (having been in the visual arts program at the time), and she remembers Brennan being an ‘arrogant computer nerd’, boasting his knowledge of Macs over the other students.
Once the program started, they began hanging out in the same group. Brennan offered to tutor Jess (with all of his knowledge of Macs and Adobe programs), and he started flirting with her shortly after. Jess was concerned at first, because Brennan was so much younger, and she’d fully accepted her future life as a crazy cat lady, but he wooed her and worked his way out of the friend zone!
They’ve survived job changes, new homes, and the ups and downs of life, and want to celebrate their commitment to each other with their closest friends and family... You guys!
You’re wonderful. Can you be wonderful forever?"
Brennan proposed to Jess in McCall, Idaho during a Gleason family get together. Jess awoke the morning of the 2nd of July to the promise of a nice walk and breakfast with Brennan, and to spend some time together to get away from the chaos of family. After a short drive up a hill in Ponderosa State Park they walked out to the cliffs overlooking the lake. After some awkward walking around on the mountains and admiring the view, Brennan mumbled some words ever so gracefully and then got down on one knee and asked Jess for her hand in marriage. She said yes, and did not fall backwards off a cliff, thankfully. Moments later they were greeted by the photographer Brennan had hired to secretly photograph the entire thing, much to Jess’s surprise. She’d mentioned to him years before that if he were to ever propose, that she wanted him to hire someone to secretly capture it, but she never thought he’d actually remember! The rest of the day was filled with many happy phone calls, texts, and hours on Pinterest already starting to plan the wedding.
