“I'm dreaming of a white Christmas Just like the ones I used to know Where the treetops glisten And children listen To hear sleigh bells in the snow”

Meet Jayson and Ariel, our newly-engaged couple who are both cheerleaders. Yeap, you read that right. Of all the unique passions that we’ve encountered, who would have thought these two lovebirds share this rare and passionate sport to the heart.
Their romantic engagement took place in London and SweetEscape is just lucky enough to have their personal insight about the little “cheerleading” love story these two have. We fired Jayson with more questions and his answers are just as cute as we thought it would be!
Just as you probably have predicted, Jayson and Ariel met through cheerleading. They both had been cheering for the same team for years.
"Cheerleading has always have a special place in both our hearts. It’s a sport that makes you realize that nothing is too big nor too difficult to overcome. It’s about sportsmanship, friendship and teamwork that counts. As long as we work towards the same goals, whether as a team or as a couple, I believe there is nothing that we can’t overcome. It’s all about hardwork and determination as well.
For me, having met Ariel is one of the best thing about cheerleading too. It’s like having your own personal supporter and life cheerleader, isn’t that just awesome? During our cheerleading days and more, we have supported each other by being there for each other in all of our ups and downs.
Cheerleading often leads to sport injuries too. So when we face obstacles together, whether fall injuries, failing goals or even other things in life, it’s comforting to know that she is there for you and yes, cheering for you. It’s truly something special for both of us.
This trip is also a special thing for us! It’s the first time we’ve traveled all the way to London as a couple. It’s a new experience that we will treasure for many years to come, that’s for sure. And what made it extra special is of course our engagement too! It’s a double whammy.
Needless to say, hiring SweetEscape along to eternalize our engagement in London is the best decision ever. It’s not everyday that we can do this, so having professional photography service along is definitely a travel must-have!"
