How they met:
A lot of people would call how they met unconventional. Andrew was fresh out of medical school and had just started his intern year in internal medicine in Norwalk, CT. Emily, working through physical therapy grad school, had moved to Fairfield, CT to finish out her classes. As fate, and luck, would have it, Emily and Andrew both swiped each other right on Tinder one summer night and the rest is history.
Before they knew it, Andrew was introducing Emily as “Tindz” to his co-residents, a term of endearment, but also an inside joke among those who know them best. As they continued to date, and fall more in love every day, it soon became apparent they would be spending many more years together.
Andrew finished residency, moved them to Indianapolis for work, and before much time had passed, he proposed to Emily in Chicago on their three year anniversary. Not ordinary, to say the least, but their relationship has always been something special. Who would have thought that a Midwest girl would fall for an East Coast City boy?
One night Andrew booked a simple weekend away in Chicago, one of Emily’s favorite cities, to celebrate their three year anniversary. Little did Emily know that this was the weekend Andrew planned to propose. Andrew had the ring in his pocket that whole weekend, waiting for the right moment to pop the question. But bitterly cold Chicago weather threw the plans off course as the winds and the freezing temperatures made the situation not ideal. Instead, that Saturday night, Andrew decided to keep it simple. An hour before their reservations for dinner, he presented a book he had made for her of all their adventures and on the last page it read “Our Engagement!”, which Andrew had purposely left blank. He turned towards her, got down on one knee, and asker her to spend the rest of her life with him.
The wedding vision:
Here’s what Emily had to say: “I had a cluttered vision of what I wanted the day to look like. Andrew was adamant that he looks best in navy so we started there and everything just flowed beautifully. What came to fruition was far beyond anything I ever had imagined. Truthfully, the vendors we chose to work with are people with beautiful souls and the kindest hearts and it really made our day of love intimate and personal. We had so many people travel so far to celebrate with us, it still brings tears to my eyes knowing we have so many wonderful people in our lives.”
We loved celebrating with this wonderful couple. Here’s a few of our favorites!
