New Orleans French Quarter Engagement Session
How did you meet?
Dan and I met at a welcome party at our graduate school advisor’s house. We were both brand new in Boston, in graduate school, and at new jobs. We ended up in the same class during our first semester. This class was a tough one and we both were looking for a study partner to help learn the material. A few study dates at Starbucks later and it was off from there!
How do he propose?
Dan couldn’t have surprised me more! I had just gotten back home from a trip to Abu Dhabi with a very delayed return flight. We had a quick turn around and headed off to a weekend getaway on Nantucket. We were staying in a cute little Airbnb on Nantucket and Dan spent the afternoon trying to convince me to head out to check out the beach. I was jet lagged (and clueless to the upcoming proposal) and refused so that I could catch up on some sleep. Dan eventually gave in and ended up proposing in the living room of the Airbnb before we headed off to the most perfect dinner!
What steps are you taking to prepare for married life?
We’re fortunate in that we already live together and have some of the groundwork down. Planning a wedding has taught us to plan for a future together, compromise, and continue to put our relationship first.
While planning your wedding, what are you most excited about?
Seeing all of our friends and family together in one place! And the live painter. So excited to have a custom piece of art from such a special day!
What has been the most stressful part of planning a wedding?
Making decisions on some of the smaller choices! The big stuff we prioritized was easy–things like a photographer , a venue, and the food. The smaller things were so much more stressful. It took us weeks to commit to an invitation suite!
