Our fabulous + super fun SSY bride Hayley, will be getting married to her best friend, on January 6th at 21c Museum Hotel in Bentonville, AR!
We are obsessing over Hayley's engagement shoot, so we just HAD to share some of her favorite photos and words from this sweet wifey-to-be AND her future hubby, Jake!

How did you two meet?
Hayley: "We are high school sweethearts! We graduated in 2014 from Rogers High School. He always said he had eyes on me since the first time I walked into Mr. Long's pre-AP chemistry class our sophomore year. He truly has been head-over-heels for me since then, I was a little slower to realize that but I finally (and thankfully) came around.
What is your favorite quality about your future wife?
Jake: "Definitely her passion. Not just how much she loves me, but how she is boldly and totally committed to her values and what she cares about. She makes no apologies for who she is, and she pushes me to be a braver more dedicated version of myself. It's difficult to find someone who is the same person publicly that they are privately and I'm proud to say I'm marrying one of those people."
What is your favorite quality about your future husband?
Hayley: "My favorite quality about Jake....it's hard to pick one. It's cliche to say "he is my other half" but....he truly is. Everything I suck at, he is good at. Everything I forget, he remembers. We have the same ideas at the same time and often "jinks" each other with phrases. I suppose my very favorite quality would be how he is my biggest fan, and I his. I gained a lot of weight because of medication I was on, and he was the biggest push in my confidence throughout that time. He didn't care that I had gained so much weight, he still told me I was beautiful, not joking, 20 times a day, and still does. He supports me even if I don't support myself - I love that about him."
What are you most excited about once you two are married?
Jake: "Starting our careers, along with all the mutual support that entails. Supporting each other to be successful adults."
What was your favorite part of your experience when you shopped at SSY?
Hayley: "My favorite part of getting my dress was the fact that everyone listened. I set my budget and everyone tried their hardest to keep it close to that figure while still finding my dream dress and it is truly my. dream. dress!!! I show people pictures and their jaws drop. It's so beautiful and I never, ever would have tried it on without my consultant's suggestion. I wouldn't have even given it a second look."
We are honored, Hayley, you choose us to share this special time with! Your love for one another takes our breath away and we are just so excited for January to be here! See you soon!
