Spent Saturday afternoon in the warm sun with these the newly engaged Chelsey & Austin.  

Between a walk around Neyland Stadium and a walk through Sequoyah park, I learned so much about their story...

They've known each other since high school, but he only decided a few years ago to start pursuing her.  She wasn't ready then.  
A year later he tried again, but she still wasn't interested.  
A year later, yet again.  

As she put it "He was on chapter 9 and I was still on the intro."  

But then one night over chips and salsa at a local mexican restaurant, both in a not-so-dressed-to-impress mindset, it all clicked for her.  He assumed she wasn't interested, she assumed she wasn't either...and somehow his lack of trying won her over.

May 2nd, here we come!
