Sometimes you fall in love at the wrong time. And other times, you meet the person you’re meant to be with at just the right moment. For Jackie and Chad, their love story is a mix of both.

The couple met while attending college in Cincinnati, Ohio. While they dated on and off, the moment was never right, and they broke up to go their separate ways. But, like a great love story, Jackie and Chad met up again– and celebrated their engagement in the same place where their romance began.

The picturesque pavilion park was the perfect place for stunning photos. Jackie and Chad donned cozy clothes to brave the sunny but cool February day. For her first look, Jackie wore a cowl neck beige sweater and classic dark rinse jeans. Chad looked comfortable in a warm vest over a crisp white dress shirt.

Later, the couple embraced on the steps leading up to the pavilion. Jackie traded her cozy sweater for a netted white blouse, and Chad dressed up in dark wash jeans with a classic gray suit. Smiles, laughter, and love warmed the winter day, as the couple looked forward to their wedding– and future– together.
