US Army Captains Jasmine, 28, and Trevor, 27, met on the job. Although she played hard to get at first, ultimately Jasmine fell for Trevor’s charm. He proposed twice in a matter of weeks and now they’re headed to the altar next summer. For now, they’re deployed together in Afghanistan, which is all the more reason to salute their love.
Jasmine tells us that being engaged is the most exciting time of her life. “I love knowing that Trevor and I will be partners forever,” she says."That we’ll have little mini-me’s running around some day. It’s been fun talking about our future together and talking about the wedding and how much fun everyone is going to have.
Though Trevor and Jasmine are both on their second combat tour right now, they recently got the chance to enjoy a 2-week R&R together in Hawaii. That’s where they choose to shoot this lovely Hollywood movie themed engagement shoot.
Jasmine and Trevor are planning an old Hollywood themed wedding with a pewter, ivory, and peach color palette and peacock blue accents. The ceremony will be held in Jonesboro, Georgia the reception will be nearby in Atlanta.
Jasmine and Trevor got engaged just three months after they began dating. “We became best friends and fell in love very quickly,” she says. For them, each second matters, and they didn’t want to waste a single one without each other.
“Trevor says he knew I was ‘the one’ when I told him why I loved him,” Jasmine tells us. “All the reasons I gave were not the typical reasons that most others would say. I love Trevor because he tells really bad jokes when I’m having a bad day and because he always thinks the best of me even when I can’t see it in myself.”
“This won’t make sense to everyone, but Trevor likes the way I tell stories,” says Jasmine. “Some of our favorite times are when I’m recounting something that happened to me during my day or when I’m telling him about something funny on TV. I do these weird voices and get real animated.”
Jasmine and Trevor are both on their second tours right now, and being deployed in Afghanistan hasn’t made it easy for them to stay connected. “It’s been hard, but if we can get through this, I know there won’t be much else we won’t be able to handle.” Amen! You two keep each other safe.
“I love that Trevor quotes Shakespeare to me out of the blue,” says Jasmine. “Some of our favorite time together is just hanging out at home in our pajamas, telling stories and joking around; maybe even watch a movie. With our schedules, we don’t normally get to do something like that.”
“I love that Jasmine is passionate about everything that she does,” says Trevor. “She’s so smart and confident.”
Most women are happy to receive one surprise proposal, but Jasmine enjoyed two. Trevor popped the question once beneath the stars during a weekend getaway and the second time a few weeks later, outside her window, using music and signs.
Everything about this photo shoot makes us feel the love. These sweet romantics enlisted the help of EllyB Events to take charge of their wedding planning while they’re away in Afghanistan.
Join us in wishing Jasmine and Trevor both a safe return home and a ceaseless joy on their wedding day and beyond. See more shots from this sweet beach shoot over at The Bride’s Cafe now.
