Heather + John | Ponce City Market Engagement Session

Heather and John are actually from the northeast, but are traveling to the south for their wedding at Chateau Elan next month!  On one of their planning trips, we were able to meet up for their engagement session!  They wanted to do something more "Atlanta" so we went to Ponce City Market!  It was so fun and I can't wait for their winery wedding at Chateau Elan!

How/ Where did you two meet?

John and I met through Match.com. A friend of mine created my online profile as a joke because she wanted me to get out and date more. After a few weeks, there was some interest from some guys, but John's profile caught my attention. Thankfully he sent me a message. We planned our first date to be a sort of "happy hour" meeting. We met for drinks at World of Beer in Stamford, Connecticut. It started at 5:30 and we finally decided to leave around 9:30. Probably the longest first date I've ever been on. :-)

How did he propose?

He proposed in the rose garden of the Bronx Botanical Gardens on June 4th 2016. It was all a surprise and after a long trek across the gardens. It was the perfect setting.

What has been the hardest part about wedding planning?

Doing everything long distance, John starting a new job as a surgeon, and pretty much 75% of the wedding being DIY. :-) We will survive this though.
