The Most Beautiful and Creative Engagement Video of All Time



The best most non-traditional Engagement video of all time by Adam Sjoberg of Loose Luggage featuring my dear friend Jess and her love Josh.

One of my most favorite friends in the entire universe got engaged recently.  Jess and I worked at a camp called Camp Hammer in Santa Cruz, Ca a few summers ago.  It was possibly one of the hardest and most inspiring experiences of my life, having just lost a dear friend of mine 2 days before I left for camp.  The people I worked with at that camp were some of the most genuine people I have ever met and Jess became my very best buddy while working there.  She is one of the most intelligent, level headed, wise, creative, honest, straight forward, sweet, loving, positive, and accepting people I have ever met.  She and I were leaders of the girls high school group along with another wonderful lady Rachelle.  When it came down to it, we all worked incredibly well together because we were able to see each of our own strengths as areas where one person leaves off, another begins.  Rachelle was the spirit and constant energy of our group, always lightening the mood and entertaining us.  She brings healing through lightness and play.  I was the emotional one of the three, the one who many of the young girls would come to spill all their hurts and pains, healing through emotional bonding.  And Jess was the steady mind of the three of us, always full of important insight and wisdom, teaching and healing through thoughts and words, guiding our campers in their internal searching with her calm, rational, logical and empowering ruminations.

When it comes down to it, I just have never met anyone else like Jess.  She is someone that you immediately know you can trust, someone who will listen and give the best reflections back to you, someone who you in turn want to listen to.  She is such a rare kind of beauty amongst the world of catty girls and all those other stereotypes of the worst kinds of girls.  Jess is the best kind of girl.  She is completely herself, and her confidence in all that she is is true beauty.  I love this girl so much and I can't even express all the ways that I admire her and respect her.  Her smile is one of the most genuine smiles you can imagine.  She is just magical.  And I am so thrilled and she and Josh are getting married.  As you can tell from the video above, Josh really matches Jess in that incredible level of thoughtfulness and love.  I know these two are destined for a beautiful life together, full of adventures, thought provoking experiences, and lots of love.

Thank you to Adam Sjoberg for not only capturing their engagement day but for creating such an amazing video to hold and share their collective memories.
