This “Midwest” couple have an adorable story – Jacki, the bride, is from Wisconsin, and Jake is from England. It was while working in Japan for the Air Force that the two of them met and fell in love. Jake ended up proposing to Jacki while he was deployed by mailing Jacki the engagement ring and asking her to open the surprise package while they were video chatting online.

Stay tuned for Parts Two and Three later today for more details from this sweet Midwestern wedding. Thanks to Miranda from Reminisce Studio for sharing their story!
