Shelby Beard & Jake Parrish

Smitten since high school, Jake Parrish offered a promise ring to his girlfriend Shelby Beard while visiting her family’s lake house one evening just before they started college. "Jake always wanted to finish school before making any plans to get married," she confides. Once he graduated, Jake proposed to his beloved only two months later – at the very same lake house.
