Shared Values and Shared Love, An Engagement | Jonathan + Melinda

The beautiful, unique Chapel Dulcinea (one of Nikk’s Picks!) is an enchanting and magical place for weddings, engagements, and more. This verdant locale was the site of Melinda and Jonathan’s engagement shoot. Afterward, they shared with us about the engagement, their relationship, and more!

A Little Canine Assistance

Jonathan and Melinda originally met as colleagues when they were both working in San Francisco. One thing led to another, and they started to build a relationship together. Melinda’s family and friends gathered for a picnic as Jonathan prepared to pop the question at Auditorium Shores in Austin. With the help of their dog and a special bandana, it wasn’t long until Melinda was asked “Will You Marry My Dad?”–and said yes!

Shared Values, Shared Futures

The couple have forged a strong relationship based around shared values, including equality, female empowerment, and the importance of physical and mental health. They also love trying new experiences together such as food and culture. Melinda attended school for event management and planning, so she had the wedding planned and ready to go well in advance of typical timelines. Now, they are prepared to take the next step in their relationship.
