Love and Other Emergencies

Kyle and Jess are not new to emergencies. Kyle is a police officer and Jess is a 911 dispatcher. And when it was love that came calling, they were surely paying attention.

The two knew each other because of work and had talked over the messaging system. It was also work that brought them closer. Kyle was taking an accident report at Jess’ neighbor’s house when he recognized Jess, but he did not exactly remember where he knew her from. This sparked his interest and began their love story. He started to send her messages online to know how he knew her, and this led to frequent exchanges of messages, a “movie contract,” and a lot of hanging out together. It didn’t take long for them to realize that they want to share their lives with one another.

The couple does not only enjoy laid-back moments of watching movies; they also enjoy more vigorous activities like hiking, shooting and driving around. It was on a trip to Michigan when Kyle popped the question. They were there to see the lighthouses and Jess thought the views were spectacular. Little did she know then that she was also in for Kyle’s marriage proposal.

The first look is one of the most memorable parts of the wedding for the couple. The gentle anticipation of seeing the person you promise to spend your whole life with brought tears to their eyes. The colors of Jess’ dress and Kyle’s suit matched with the pleasant views in the venue. The maroon, blue and white flowers in Jess’ bouquet also added to the charm of the event.

The ceremony could not be more perfect. In the presence of their close friends and loved ones, Jess and Kyle said their I dos. Sharing this moment with people who mean most to them made it even more special for the couple.

It is often said that we don’t go out looking for love; it is love that finds us. So when it does, we should be ready. And for Jess and Kyle, love may have come unexpectedly, but their occupations taught them not to panic, but to receive it with peace and calm and come with true love.
