    Fun fact about yourself or your relationship: We met online, but it took him 2 tries on 2 different websites! He actually messaged me last summer on a site that I HATED; I was only on there for about 3 days before I closed my account, and I never opened the email I got about him trying to talk to me. 6 months later he messaged me on a different site, and we just clicked :)

    Wedding location: West Sayville, NY
    What style of wedding (size, type of meal, or whatever)? We are expecting about 125 guests and are having the ceremony and reception all in one place. We want to convey our personal styles and interests and throw a great party that all of our guests will enjoy. We don’t have specific theme, but it could be summarized as DIY/eclectic/beachy/vintage.
    Fun fact about yourself or your relationship: We met less than a month after I ended my previous relationship and a week or so after I had a tonsillectomy. I wouldn’t have expected it to the most ideal time to meet the man I was going to marry, but apparently it was!

  • Ages of you and Fi: I'm 27, he's 44.

    How long you've been together: Several months

    Professions or if in school, what you're studyingHe works at a mill, I operate a non-profit in Central America

    Any fur babies or real babies? A two-month-old puppy who was recently handed to me  by a little girl in church (you don't say no to a little girl with a puppy)

    Wedding date: Saturday, May 16, 2015

    Wedding location: The church my grandfather used to preach in - it was constructed in the 1870s and still has many of the original furnishings, including the windows and pulpit (and a cemetery in the back that is older than the church)

    What style of wedding (size, type of meal, or whatever)? We want to keep it fairly small, simple, romantic, and relaxed. The wedding colors are blush pink, green, and ivory. The church will be decorated with plenty of candles, flowers, and small birch trees (my grandfather's middle name was Birch, so it's a way to honor him). The reception will be held in the small clearing next to the church and will be a pretty relaxed affair - we are providing a pig and drinks and are going to ask the guests to bring a covered dish. We'll include music, dancing, and a bonfire too. The details don't really matter too much to us - we're just ready to be married and share the day with our family and friends :)

    Fun fact about yourself or your relationship: I feel like we've had such a crazy relationship! We met about a year ago when I was working as a hostess at a restaurant, and he was in town hunting on his deer lease. The attraction was instant, but it took several months for us to exchange numbers. For some reason things never got romantic between us during that time (in fact, we became best friends!). Things changed that spring when he came back to town to turkey hunt. Sparks flew, but I wouldn't agree to date him until I was sure he was "the one" (I was tired of heart break). I made him wait until July 4, and he asked my Dad that night for permission :) ...then several weeks later I left to spend 6 months in Central America working on a project. Talk about bad timing! He came to visit me several weeks ago, and was going to propose, but the ring didn't come in time (I kid you not, it arrived at his house while he was waiting for his connecting flight to come down here). So we're "unofficially engaged" but planning things out so it's not so stressful when I come home in November. Fun fact: our "daughters" (two street girls I take care of) actually picked our wedding date for us, which makes it even more special :)

    We have a crazy life, and a crazy love story, but we're definitely looking forward to tying the knot and becoming Mr. and Mrs. so we can come down here and work full time! :)
