Benton residents and natives Jessica Lashlee and Clark Yazza are engaged to be wed May 4, 2013, at Calypso House in Destin, Fla. Austin Walker of Austin & Emma sent us these engagement shots, as well as their fun surprise engagement story:
Clark and Jessica took a trip to Fayetteville to stay with friends and watch a Razorback baseball game. After eating breakfast at Common Grounds, they walked around campus to try to find Jessica's name on the Senior Walk. Then, she showed Clark some of her favorite places on campus like her dorm, the Greek theater and the Sam M. Walton College of Business. Clark insisted that they go to the football stadium even though they go there at least four times a year for football games.
The gate was open to the field so Clark talked Jessica into walking onto it. When they got to the 50-yard line, Clark told Jessica how much he loved her and how he can't wait to spend the rest of his life with her. He got down on one knee and asked her to marry him. Of course, she said yes. As they walked back to their car, Jessica's best friends Kori, Heather, Stephanie and Brittany popped out and surprised her. After tears and pictures they headed to Baum Stadium to watch the Razorback Baseball team beat the Alabama Crimson Tide.
