Brit and Jon met at Manalapan High School (Brit had attended for high school here) where Jon currently works as the high school football coach. Brit was hired as a long term sub for a physical education teacher.
They hit it off immediately, and they found that their days were intertwined because Brit has all of his players as her students. She noticed that Jon would always find a way to pop his head in to "check in" on his players as he would tell her. Soon it became clear to Brit that he was actually checking in on her!
Jon and Brit have been dating for four years and every year they would celebrate their anniversary at their favorite restaurant where he first asked her to be his girlfriend. This past year they returned to their favorite place where they enjoyed a wonderful time together.
After returning home, there was a gift wrapped for her in their living room. The gift was a nike shoe box (Jon usually buys her a pair of sneakers since she is a physical education teacher and she is obsessed with them). When opening the box, she noticed that there were no sneakers to be found. Inside there was a bottle of jaeger and two shot glasses (this was the first drink Jon bought Brit the first time they went out). Also inside of the box was the 6th Harry Potter book, "Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince". Brit thought, "why another copy of the book I already own and have read", but Jon assured her that it was a special edition and she totally needed it!
When Brit opened the book, there was a cut out in the book on the chapter called "the unbreakable vow" and an engagement ring tied with a beautiful purple ribbon inside. At this moment, Jon dropped to one knee and proposed!
After saying yes, Jon opened the living room curtains and there in the backyard, were tons of pretty balloons covering the yard!
Brit and Jon enjoy long walks and bike rides together and often communicate with silly movie quotes! They love Game of Thrones, are huge New York Ranger fans, and love everything related to sports. They beg to differ when it comes to football! Jon and avid Jets fan and Brit a big Giants fan causes some competition in their home.
I love that they brought their football jerseys for some fun pics!!
Their wedding will be next July at the beautiful and amazing Bear Brook Valley!!
