Jonesboro residents and Manila natives Natalie Marcus and Charles Andrew Fleeman are engaged to be wed June 7, 2013, at the Thorncrown Chapel and 1905 Basin Park Hotel in Eureka Springs. If you think these shots by Jessica June Photography are cute, wait until you read their love story in Natalie's own words:
It is impossible to fully and accurately explain the depths of our love in only a few paragraphs, but I'll give it my best. I've had the unique and fortunate experience to have already spent the majority of my life with the one I love, Charles Andrew Fleeman. Not only are we high school sweethearts, we are even junior high sweethearts! Since seventh grade, Andrew has been in my life. Between moving across the country, losing loved ones and experiencing other growing pains, we've been through thick and thin, but we have always made it through!
Andrew proposed to me in our hometown of Manila on June 22, 2012, by leading me through a series of handmade signs posted to trees in a path he had cleared on some of his dad's land. This eventually led to a tall handmade pedestal that held a small wooden box with a sparkling ring. I, of course, said yes! We are both incredibly blessed and thankful to the Lord for sending us true love. I couldn't dream of anything better. What can I say, we were meant to be together since day one.
