The story of Emily & Evan…
We originally met about 8 years ago in one of our college classes. Evan sat in front of me and made several attempts at asking me out; I was too naive to recognize that he was flirting! He decided to break his pencil one day so that he would have an excuse to ask me for one…I offered him a pen and was still clueless that he liked me! We reconnected in February of last year! God has excellent timing. 🙂
We went to West Sixth Brewery for our first date. We ended up sitting there and talking for about four hours. It was the most comfortable, easy going conversation. I really knew I liked him when he agreed to share an order of buffalo fish from Smithtown!
Our proposal wasn’t extravagant, but it was perfect for us. Evan proposed to me right as I walked into his house on the evening of our one year anniversary.
When you know, you know. My heart has never felt as full as it has since Evan and I reconnected. We laugh ALL THE TIME and I’m looking forward to a lifetime of that!
For me (Emily speaking), I love the way his personality creates such a perfect balance with mine. He’s just one of those people with a great heart. I can’t speak for Evan as far as what he loves most about me…he might say that he loves that I love food just as much as he does lol!
I really just can’t wait to be his wife! I also can’t wait for the first look!
I’m most excited to continue growing, learning, and experiencing all the next stages of life with Evan! We always say we feel like each others’ best teammate. We have SO much fun, but we’re there for each other for the difficult stuff, too. We’ve dedicated ourselves to building a stronger relationship with God as we move forward with our marriage as well; both individually and as a couple. I’m excited to see where that takes us!
A huge thanks to the vendors who made this day beautiful…
