How did you meet?We met at BYU a couple of years ago, where we were in the same ward.
What is one unique thing about your relationship?Some people think it’s crazy, but almost our entire dating relationship was long distance. We’d known each other for a year beforehand, luckily, but we didn’t start really talking or dating until Andrew had graduated and moved to New Hampshire to work.
When did you realize you were in love?Jessica: He had been out for Christmas break and we’d spent a few days in L.A. and with our families in Utah. The night before he left to go back to New Hampshire, he was driving me back to my apartment and we were both really quiet. I remember feeling suddenly overwhelmed with how much I cared about him, and I realized, even though I think I’d always kind of known it, that I loved him and that I wanted to be with him. I didn’t say anything while we were driving, but it was a very real, powerful experience.
Andrew: I realized I loved her way before then.
What are your favorite qualities about each other?
Jessica: I love that Andrew is so confident and that his faith is so simple. He knows that things will always come together, and so he goes for anything he wants in life. I know he could accomplish anything he sets his heart to, and that he’s going to do some great things. I’m so excited to be with him when he does! And it doesn’t hurt that he’s so funny, sweet and darn cute.
Andrew: I love that Jessica is so positive and happy all the time. She loves people and she loves life and it shows. She is humble, hardworking, intelligent, and I love the fact that she is so musical. I also love that she is so family-oriented and wants to be a mother and raise seven crazy kids with me!
How did he propose?I picked him up from the airport and we were planning on going to my parents’ house so he could talk to my dad. On the way, his sister who lives in Draper called to ask if we could just stop by and “visit” for a minute on the way. We agreed, and when we got there Andrew said they were all on the back balcony and that we could just meet them back there. When we opened the door, there was a beautiful dinner set up, with candles everywhere and music playing. Before I could put together what was happening, he was on one knee. He asked me to marry him, I said yes, and we sat down to a beautiful dinner together.
