- Wedding: October 2014
I just wanted to introduce myself to everyone. Fiance and I became engaged on April 29th after 3 1/2 years of dating. We love to hike and try to hike to new spots every weekend, he took me on a hike and proposed at the base of a waterfall, it was perfect and so us. We met at college at a party his fraternity was throwing and aside from thinking he was a tad bit obnoxious at first, we became immediate best friends! We stayed in our college town for a few years after graduating and have just recently settled in Syracuse, NY. Fiance is a software engineer for the World Health Organization and telecommutes from a home office and I am a social worker at a foster care agency. We are in our mid 20’s and I am originally from Long Island but Fiance is from the Syracuse area. We are having a rather long engagement because I never rush into anything (FI and I were friends for two years before we started dating, lol) and because the weekend we wanted was booked already for 2013, so the date is 10/14/2014 and will be in Saratoga Springs NY! I have never given a thought to what I wanted my wedding to be like so this is an entirely new process for me but at least I have years to figure it out! So that is our story in a nutshell lol My ring is 3 carats of Ceylon Sapphires surrounded by diamonds and set in white gold. I always wanted a sapphire and although I hardly ever wear any jewelery, I adore it!
