Lance and Jess first met in the spring of 2014, at Roasters coffee shop in Richland where she was working. After a few failed attempts at meeting due to her nervousness, he finally took initiative and came into the coffee shop to say hi. From the moment he walked through that door her heart was racing and he said he felt the same.
"The feelings we both had internally was something we both later confirmed was love at first sight. It’s safe to say our fire started right then and there and we've been unable to put it out ever since."
The setting was set. It was New Years Eve 2016, and there under the Space Needle in Seattle, Wa with the twinkling and bright colors of the fireworks up above, Lance dropped down to one knee and asked Jesslyn to be his wife. Full of shock she spun around, caught her breath, and gave him what she says was the most assured answer of her life, YES!
"I am not sure if he had Nicholas Sparks in on this or not but at that moment of our kiss it started snowing so perfectly, something straight out of a movie and something I will never ever forget.
What followed that night proved to these two that they were in for many adventures together and what was most important... their love together. After a change in venue they settled on the family ranch in Idaho. The place was stunning with lots of greenery and an overlook that takes your breath away, But... as luck would have it, the day surprised them with a forecast full of rain. They quickly changed the plan of having the ceremony out in the open wrapped with pine trees to having it under the covering at the family hockey rink. Yep, it was on a hockey rink. :) The photos proved though how beautiful it all turned out and I couldn't be happier for these two. Cheers to the new Mr. and Mrs. Pyle!
